2.5 TDI V6 Diesel Injection Pump Timing Woes?
My car has just been off the road for a few weeks, but I'm not out of the deep water yet, first of all, it wouldn't start for love or money.
I took it to a VW/Audi 'specialist' garage who said there was no fuel coming to the filter. They replaced the in-tank pump and then gave up and said they suspected the injection pump and told me to take it to a diesel specialist.
Next I took it to an expert but it was too expensive and their attitude sucked.
So I took it home, whipped off the injection pump and sent to be remanufactured by dieselbob .
It came back and I fitted it along with genuine Audi cambelt kit, v-belts, water-pump and thermostat.
Everything was locked with a locking kit.
Then I came to bleed the fuel lines and found that as with the first garage there was no fuel being pumped to the filter, despite hotwiring the pump. Then I read online that this is normal anyway :sadlike:
Now, I pull diesel through with a vacuum, and bleed the injectors and it starts and runs like a dream. :jump::p
So I think I will do the dynamic timing later after a quick test drive.
After 5 minutes, the engine cut out, and wouldn't restart.
I called the RAC, by which time after 80 mins it would start, but would barely idle and would die.
Pressing the throttle pedal had no effect.
I scanned for codes and got ...
I checked everything and it was all looking good.
Could it be the dynamic timing out?
Is there enough adjustment on slotted holes of the injection sprocket to cause non-start, or is it just fine tuning?
I have read instructions of ELSA which say you can move undo the pump mounting bolts and move it, but IIRC it was not on slotted holes and even had sleeves. :confused:
So do you guys have any tips or experience of this last stage?
I can do the dynamic timing with vagcom, but a pre-requisite is a running engine at 80 deg C. :banghead:
Thanks for any help.
