200 tdi cutting out


Recommended Posts

Just taken rebuilt 90 - 200tdi- out for first major after complete rebuild and fine for first 50 miles then sudden loss of power and stops- will start after few seconds but only runs for 200/ 400 yards then stops again.

I do not know this engine - it has done 121,000 and whiIe it was out of the 90 I had fitted new fuel pump and timing belt and filters but nothing else as I intend to swap engine for one out of my 110.

The fuel pump was a cheap one and I did not fit the spacer.

The truck is 20 miles from home and I want to recover it in the morning - any ideas please

Thanks for replies, idling time varies but can be ok until revved, tank and filter new on rebuild 50 miles ago, engine had been standing for a long time -many months until a year ago and did not respond to accelerator which is why I replaced pump and filter but deliberately did not over rev when I acquired until I had replaced the timing belt

Thought I had reported back yesterday but must have pressed the wrong button! 90 now back home - embarrassed to admit that the problem,as usual, was self inflicted; the fuel pipe union into the tank was loose and sucking air - i had obviously not pinched it up when installing tank on rebuild so had been ok for first 50 miles but worked loose. Thanks for your response

Yes, was concerned at one stage that it might be £600 for injector pump etc which would have pushed the total cost of this rebuild nearer the divorce limit - already had to recarpet the house to placate - she can't understand why I need two Defenders.

We had identical issues with a 200 Tdi Disco, changed lift pump - failed, changed fuel filter- failed, eventually tracked it down to being a porous joint in the fuel line from the tank to the injector pump and a slack jubilee clip. Replaced the fuel lines with 8mm copper and all has been fine ever since.
