Customer Question

I have a 2007 mitsubishi l200 2.5 did. Since I have done the head gasket it will not start. I have checked my timing and its spot on. It appears to be getting no fuel. It will run on easy start. I have also had the injectors reconditioned. At first no fault codes came up until I towed it off then it came up with code p0336. Which is crank portion sensor range, I have already changed the sensor. The fault does not come with just cranking. I have checked all fuses that I can see again they all seem fine. I have fuel to the injectors, but as there is no smoke at the exhaust on cranking I can only assume the injectors are not powering up to open the injectors. I am a bit lost as to where to go next.

Good day Ben, have you by chance checked with a meter for power to the injectors with key in the ON position?

and did you remove the crank sprocket when doing the timing job?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

now then jake. i didn't remove the crank sprocket when doing the belt, it was siezed on so i managed to squeeze the balance shaft belt under it.

i haven't checked the injectors with the key on. what voltage should i expect to get at the injectors?

Expert:  Jake replied 1 year ago.
The injectors will have constant battery voltage with the key on, about 12 volts. The engine computer grounds them for pulse duration but we just want to know if there is power there.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

now then jake i've checked the injectors with ignition on. with the battery at 12volts. i've had one probe from the multimeter to the live on the injector and the other probe to the earth on the battery i'm reading 6.3 volts on all four injector plugs.

Expert:  Jake replied 1 year ago.

Thanks, ***** ***** we know now that the injector pulse is not a pwoer issue, but moreso directly related to the crank sesor code thats present.

It's fairly common for these balancers and crank sprockets to seize like you mentioned. When that happens and you get the crank gear to move, but not come all the way off it can cause the reluctor to move which throws off ignition timing. Generally you won't notice it moved until the crank sprocket has been removed and the notch not lined up correctly.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

right then fella so i'll try and remove the sprocket and have look hopefully it should give me an answer.
