    confused Veccy Sick - engine has been replaced by a Kangaroo !!

    2.0DTi 81k

    It all began on Saturday, what felt like a mystery mis-fire whilst travellign along the M25 at motorway crusing speeds, not reason not under load or hard accelerating just normal driving.

    As time has progressed the Kanagroo has got progresively worse to a stage now it has become embarassing to say the least.

    Had a good look to see if anythign was unfoward under the bonner, checked all elctrical connections, vaccuum pipes and and intercooler pipes - nothing.

    Any clues ??

    The car has been with a mechanic whilst I've been away for a week and this is the diagnosis.

    Full Diagnostics ran, EGR valve not working (cleaning required), Throtol flaps (required cleaning), Air Flow Mass meter not working, Camshaft & ceankshaft sensor weak signals (hopefully new AFM will resolve).

    Amazing that none of the above didn't show before ?

    Car not due back until monday - waiting on a new AFM.

    Update - All parts that can be cleaned have been and new MAF fitted - problem still there !!! just been told that that the Crank Sensor is located within the fuel pump (?) on the DTi.
    If it's the fuel pump the bill will be more than the car is worth

    The DTi has a separate crank sensor which is located at the front of the engine block near the bottom. There are 2 models available so check which one you need before ordering...

    Thanks - so why am I being told that there is a sensor in the pump that monitors the crank/camshaft ?

    Maybe there is some sort of position sensor in the fuel pump but the crankshaft sensor is located as my description above. You could ask the person who told you there was a cam/crank position sensor in the fuel pump as to why they believe/know this.

    Bear in mind that the fuel pump is driven from the engine via a chain. I would therefore assume that it it gets engine position (which it obviously needs to know) from external cam/crankshaft sensors (the DTi only has the latter as I stated) which are located next to the appropriate shaft.

    Don't know if this is any help for your model, but following a similar prob. on my 150 CDTI, cleaned the "boost sensor" and that cured it. It was very clagged up after the last clean, about 12 months ago, so looks like its going to be a regular job.
