Basically the car would not maintain idle - did the basic tests (2000 RPPM etc) and they all pointed to a faulty IP. But before biting the bullet on that (i am in Australia, and these cars are as rare as Rocking Horse Sh*T) i wanted to isolate everything else it could be, so i replaced
CPS - No Change
PMD - No change
PMD extension and harness on pump - no change
I had already done all the basic troubleshooting in terms of fuel lines, fuel delivery, air in the fuel lines, air in the return lines etc, checked and cleaned all grounds and the like
Once all of this was done the only way to get stable revs was to disconnect the OS - which obviously put the car into limp mode but let me drive it to the mechanics.
Got a new pump in from Kennedy Diesel and had the mechanic install that - following the steps given by others on here and the other forum - scribed marks lined up and all good - car fired up with only one injector cracked and ran fine for a 50KM drive.
I had not at this stage performed a TDCO as i was waiting for CarCode to arrive.
The next day the car would not start despite extended cranking - checked my code reader (Autel Maxitrip) and it gave me a CPS code - checked this and the cable was loose - looked like the mechanic had not locked it in well enough
Now it looks like the combination of the new pump and the CPS disconnected has forced a relearn on the TDCO - because the car was real hard to start and ran terribly - this is the day after it started beautifully.
So the next day my Carcode arrived, and i hooked it up, started the car (after much cranking) and attempted to work out how to use CarCode based on the HowTo Racer supplied - not real sucessful and along the way the pump went from having a value of +1.3 to +2.46 - as it was getting worse at that point and i could hardly keep it going - i shut it off and went looking for more help on the other forum in terms of how to use CarCode properly.
The car has not started again since that shutoff
I am no getting any fuel at the Injectors, but have verified fuel at the return on the pump and that the solenoid is operating OK
(i have been through all the diagnostics this week again - with replacing the PMD, moving it near the pump and bypassing my harness etc)
In the end i burnt out my starter and have just had to order a new one.
That will arrive on Monday.
Have just spoken to John Kennedy and he thinks it is unlikely the pump has failed this quickly
He thinks the pump is now refusing to pump fuel because it is timed so far out and suggests moving it 1mm to the right to try and get it back into a reasonable approximation for timing
So thats where i am at
And yep i do owe you some pictures !!!
I will post them up tomorrow
