  1. Traditional or indirect injection CI engines have a pre-combustion chamber. Direct means literally into the combustion chamber. Great for outright power in high speed diesels, appalling for particulate and NoX creation.
  2. A bit like here then. Or exactly like here. I'm on both. There's a decent mix on both. The password thing I had from a work site exactly the same as you describe. Changed it, then back and nothing. Odd indeed.
  3. identical to mine. Ah, those were the days...song in there somewhere.
  4. Hmm. Map readings are good, seem a bit low when running, mind you that might be symptom.
  5. Stanky do me a favour and get a MAP reading with ignition on and engine off please. Cheers.
  6. I am aware of what it means - its not safe. A hydraulic jack is lifting equipment, not for supporting a vehicle, especially a un-chocked one. A tyre change is really the limit. I'm aware that lots of people work on unsupported vehicles, no chocks etc - doesn't make it right. Not sure what you're trying to prove so will leave it there.
  7. Yeah, 30 years in the trade and not dead. Utter drivel chap,
  8. Get out. Get an axle stand.
  9. Have you got an actual manual? Check tos resistance readings as well have voltage via diag. Stick it on a trailer and come to Worcester.
  10. The engine runs in open loop mode before it's at operating temp, before going to closed loop. Feedback from pre and post cat sensors is used to determine air fuel ratio. The engine is up to temp. Yes, blank it if possible, if not then leave it disconnected.
  11. Idle control valve only allows additional air to move idle speed off the base setting. It maybe that it completely controls the idle speed with that e butterfly closed, or controls it over and above a base setting- eg 500rpm. This would be set by a throttle stop adjuster type screw on the throttle body. If someone has touched this then it's possible that the idle is always too high, so the icv is always closed as the ecu tries to lower idle speed to normal levels. I would try blanking off the idle speed bypass circuit and seeing what the idle speed is then. Should be zero, or very low.
  12. Can you show me the idle valve mounting,? Also, the throttle butterfly in closed position.
