fuel pump. will get them to solve the block smoke once and for all.

cHUcHU,

Finally after 3 days the SC, the problems on black smoke and high fuel
consumption is fixed for good.

The problem lies in the fuel pump and not the injectors.
Now I got back the 280NM of torque.

The best part is that is costs only RM84.Smile

slkmerc, that good news!

Did your fuel pump went bonkers in such a short time ?

Did you poke the SC on what is done/parts changed ?

cheers.

cHUcHU,

The SC told me that he took out the fuel pump, cleaned the filter (dun
know which filter) and 'adjust the fuel pump'. I suspect he could be
playing around with the fuel ratio. THe pump didn't fail, probably just
out of 'tuned'

Now i could revved till the redline and don't get more smoke that i was at
2000 rpm before the repair. The engine is alot smoother than b4.

There is a small mesh filter abt the size of your little fingertip located
under a nut, last line of defence just before the fuel line from the
diesel filter enters the fuel pump.
You can clean it DIY, less than 10min job.

slkmerc, honestlee,

Yep, actually there is a small brass mesh diesel filter located at the
banjo connection just sfter the flex fuel lines terminates at the fuel
pump.

Any restriction at this filter will cause the engine to buck, severe power
loss and black smoke.

Strangely, there is no mention about the maint requirement on this filter
in the manual

Shock

cHUcHU,

If the is a restriction to this filter, logically it should only cause
severe lost of power but not black smoke because there will not be
sufficient fuel to the injectors.

Yesterday on my way south, the ranger died at the rest stop near Serembam.
Couldn't start. Got Ford SC to tow the car to the nearest SC in Serembam.
The Cobra immobiliser system short-circuited, in turn cuts of the fuel
pump. They took out the metal casing at the engine bay that prevents jump
start of the engine and repaired the wiring. They everything is on the go
again. Bill= 150 towing and 13 for one bloody fuse.
