|04 2.0D Engine cuts out..... - Railroad.|
My brother has a Jaguar X-Type 2.0 diesel. Just last week it cut out and he thought it had run out of fuel because it was low. He filled it up and it started straight away. He thought that was that until it happened again after about 25 miles. The engine cut out and would not re-start. He cranked it over, and it sounded like it wanted to fire but it wouldn't. He left it for about 20 minutes and it started again and ran normally.
He drove for about 3 miles and it cut out again. I went out to him and towed him back to my house where I had a look at it. It's a TDCi common rail system and no indication had lit up on the dash. I have VCDS, the VAG diagnostic software which also does OBDII on many other makes, but it will not communicate with this.
I removed the fuel hoses from the fuel filter and drew fuel up with a hand primer. No problem there. I got him to crank the engine while I forced fuel on to the main injection pump and it still would not start. That makes me suspect that the main fuel pump could be faulty, or some other sensor which leads to the ECU switching the pump off. Then it started again. I checked the connections on the main fuel pump and on the fuel pressure sensor. Needless to say it broke down again after another 3 miles.
Any ideas gratefully received......
Have just had the fuel injection pump on a 2000 BMW 320D replaced at a cost of £2,500. Trying to find out if BMW's recall on the fuel pre-delivery pump...
There's no presure coming out of the high pressure pump from the engine. Can you think of any reason this might happen please John?
The in-tank fuel pump in my July 2009, 1.6 Petrol Ford Focus failed on 26 December 2012. The AA transported the car 140 miles to my local independent garage...
Smart looks and roomy load bay. V6s are four-wheel drive. Diesels are quite frugal.
