morning

At the weekend i bought a 300tdi auto disco. Used it fine over the weekend and travelled up to birmingham with no problems. total about 250 miles.

Last night when i left work it was really sluggish. When driving it struggles past 2000 RPM when not loaded ie neutral it happly revs away.

Its as though it is in get you home mode

It is a N plate ES. chassis TA

any info would be helpful as i dont fancy driving home (140 miles) at 50mph

thanks

Check air hoses between turbo and intercooler.

They have a habit of collapsing internally, so you have to take them off

to inspect.

thats what it seems like the one from the turbo to the metal tube seems extremely soft.

can someone confirm for me that the following part numbers are the ones i need

ESR2912 and esr2913

typical i have some at home but that is 140 miles away so will have to order and pay for some shock horror

thanks in advance western :)

The fuel lift pump could be failing too Paul. Have you tried removing the pipe and pumping the priming lever? Could the fuel filter be blocked? Is there plenty of fuel in it?

Chris

new fuel filter went on sat afternoon

1/2 tank of fuel

had been run on veggie oil and the filter was mank

but it ran ok on the veggie oil and ran fine all the way up yesterday morning .

When i started it in the work carpark the power was gone.

dont think it is the fuel pump as it revs freely when not under load ie to 4-5 k rpm

its as though its in get you home mode which when it happened on the freeloader was turbo pipes

I had a Toy pickup in the Caribbean that did this - it was water in the fuel. The fuel filter filled up with water and starved the engine of fuel.

Try draining the fuel filter.

will try that tonight
