HI greg yes willing to wait for answer to my post .


 


I have had diagnostic test done which said ignition timing valve at fault .


 


But now while waiting for response to post , have found on my manual that the problem might be water in the gear box , if this is the case where do I find the water drain of plug , please . Bearing in mind that I was going through flood water to get home /work .


Car is starting up a lot better but is still lacking in power ,depending on turn light goes out and engine speed picks up .


I like to do my own mechanics as we have 4 cars in family ,but this has got me stumped .


Any help will be much appreciated ,


many thanks barry

Check the connection on the bottom of the filter .

I take it the warning light is the water in fuel warning light .

What was the malfunction code to let you know you have ignition timing valve at fault .

Have already checked the bottom of filter and all was ok ,


The malfunction said it was the high side in the INT ,but when I go left when driving the light goes out then car runs normal power after 3oft I then have a big power loss the malfunction light stays on , on right turns engine runs normal .


hope to hear from you barry

Hi Barry .

To know what is causing this problem you will have to be hooked up to a diagnostic scan tool to check for malfunction codes , from the malfunction codes you will then know what is causing this intermittent issue ,while each time the fault comes it will keep a code referring to the problem that the management system encounters .

So with this code you got ignition timing valve at fault do you have this PXXXX code .

HI Greg , They managed to put the low side back in but high side will not go back in . Have been told that I need to put another pump on with a recon being £600 plus labour , Considering car is worth about £800 . Got mechanic friend phoning FIRST DIESEL at Thornton Heath .

Hi Greg I know you said you were passing this on to another advisor , but through perseverance have today at long last solved what the problem was a broken wire in the loom ,where the loom goes to the back of engine it loops to come back to fuse box , can only presume when engine moved it created a short . Yellow wire . Thought this might be useful to you .


thanks barry
