  1. Cheers Rumcajs, Got car running now however temporary repair. Saving cash for recon pump, quoted $3300 part only. Overlooked issue by myself and on Saturday while troubleshooting got flash fault code 72 tdc pulse signal (incorrect signal from fuel pump). Got dieseltec on Monday to connect tool directly to pump but soon tech arrived pin point bare wires to PSG valve and caused short circuit. In one hand lucky enough because managed remove rhs engine mount, cut wires and insulated following rejoining also relocated harness to prevent from getting hot. Reassemble and engine runs good. Very lucky haven't burnt ecm internally. Pump ecm can't exchanges due to rail sensor is attached internal and soon while attempted lift ecm from housing pump must be bench program. I've have seen number of faulty pumps and also number of sensor wires attempted repair by others at dieseltec pump room and tech reply common fault!
  2. Hi all, everything was ok until pulled up for 1 hour, came back to car and winds over but won't start. Check all fuses and priming pump has is hard, has fuel pressure, half a tank of fuel. Got towed to Racq workshop, get off tow truck and engine started but on high rpm start running really rough, misfire, diesel knock, white smoke then shut down, next couple starts stall while idling. Mechanic suspect fuel pump issue, unable connect scanner, try to flash codes from ecm but only 55 means no faults. Unable to fix in next 24hours also towed to my place. Charged battery up, started engine and same happened runs funny, lots of white smoke and engine stalls, no check engine light on. Removed fuel filter housing to drain fuel from it but no water present. Refit, bleed fuel system, started engine and runs good, no more issues however don't want drive because to me isn't fix. Any advice what could be a problem? It's pump failing? Thought about dodgy fuel but last time filled Bp standard diesel and done 300kilometers before issue started diesel or Puma premium. Forgot mention bought 4wd 2 years ago and beforehand had engine swap because pump failed in original engine. Second engine had 175k while was installed. Cheers
  3. Hi guys I done dual mass flywheel on weekend, pulled gearbox out today and thinking go solid flywheel and hevy duty clutch. One thing not sure is mounting gearbox without bell housing spacer or solid flywheel will compensate by it's thickness? Mounting gearbox without spacer will messed up with gearsticks location and drivelines lenghts? Cheers
  4. Thank you for your reply Rumcajs. I clean earth connections before but definetly will run extra cables for it. I received on Friday reconditioned genuine sensor but I will send back because lever is hard to move due to seized up and rust flakes coming off around shaft. I been driving car and haven't play up since Wedensday morning also got second hand engine ecu from wreckers but not sure if can just plug in if don't have imobilizer for it? Regards overboosting switch I read some info on other forum saying on/off switch under throttle pedal protect from overboost. Not 100% sure on it
  5. Hi guys do you familiar with intermittant throttle position sensor fault. Flash fault code 43, removed throttle pedal assembly, tested overboosting switch and tps resistance on idle and full throttle reading 0.7ohms and 1.6ohms. Fitted second hand pedal assembly and still faulting also order genuine tps of ebay. I'm not 100% convinent this will fix issue and try resolve problem before heading out to Fraser Island over Christmas break. Cheers
