Landrovernuts Posted July 13, 2015 Share Posted July 13, 2015 A friend of mine has just bought a 110 double cab for his work and has an issue with it after starting from cold. It will start and idle perfect, then when you put your foot down nothing happens - it just idles (smoothly) then after a couple of minutes the revs slowly start to build up. If you leave it for a couple of minutes idling it is then fine to. It does this when cold or when it has been allowed to cool down. When it is warm no problem. We drove it from Dover back to the West Country and have to say it drove quite well, but now we have it back we have found a few issues with it such as the air flow meter is unplugged and plugging it back in it runs fine just gutless. That is first on the list of things to do! He has got receipts for the usual TD5 items that periodically need replacement which includes injector harness, injector seals, fuel pressure regulator, fuel pump replaced and the EGR has been blanked off. I have taken the red plug off the ECU and cleaned it out with electroclean, but to be honest there was oil there but not that much and a new fuel filter has just been put on. It is however at the back of my mind if cheap or bits from a blue box have been used that we could be replacing bits again! Obviously he is going to change the air flow meter, but just wondered if anyone have a fault code reader in the Exeter area who could just plug it in and check to see if there are any faults logged. I was going to take out the fuel pump (now has a hole cut in the rear tub) and just check the fuel pump filter as the fuel filter was full of rubbish. I was also going to check the fuel pressure to make sure it is coming straight up to pressure, but not sure where to put the gauge in - is there a test point? I have tested the fuel temperature sensor and the water temperature sender temperature resistance values (both are within limits which I have now forgotten) and the temperature gauge works fine. The throttle seems to have a fair amount of travel before anything actually happens and may be there is an issue with the throttle pedal, but cannot see the connection to the temperature. May just be how a TD5 is (I have a V8 and throttle response is instant!)? I was also going to get the injector codes while I change the rocker gasket (leaking) just to make sure if when we can get it plugged in the ECU has the correct codes input. If anyone has any ideas or a fault code reader please shout! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
