Ford Transit cut out and now won’t start

Postby MacThomas » Tue Sep 15, 2020 4:58 pm

Hi I have a Ford Transit SWB mk 6 FWD TDDI 2.0 Iwas driving the other day and my van suddenly conked out!

Restarted and came back on for another 15 seconds managed to roll it out the way and then would crank but wouldn’t fire up

Called out AA recovery

Sprayed quick start and would fire up but no pressure in accelerator and would die without spraying in the air intake

Now just cranks but won’t come back on!

Fuel filter was rather low the AA breakdown guy filled with fresh diesel and reconnected but didn’t work

I checked the fuel and doesn’t have any bits of metal or crap in

Really hoping it isn’t the fuel pump failed as an expensive job

He didn’t run diagnostics so haven’t checked! Also I have no cash right now so I am a sitting duck

Wondering any other ideas? To why this could happen

Thanks

Chad

Oh also I had a split in my turbo air intake so I have been taking him off and messing around with it a couple times so wondering if the green and white wire underneath has been disturbed!!

Is it a case of wiggly the wire and cranking it?

Have tried this and still won’t fire

Cheers

Unfortunately you'll need to get the codes read to get an idea of where/what to look at. Guessing is time consuming and expensive. Since it runs with a sniff of easy start we can eliminate the valve timing being way out.

Forscan and a 15 quid ELM-327 reader will get the code read done.

Thanks for the help Lord! I wondered if it was a waste of cash getting a reader as I hear the cheap ones bad Mk 6’s can be hard to read but thanks for one that CAN read! Def will buy one of those!

I’ll have a look at the Wiring loom! Anything but a broken pump!

Yeah I have been taking the turbo inlet on and off above the engine the past month and I changed the oil and filter

Wondering if that has anything to do with it
