Shell Rotella 15W40 is the best oil to use all year round in a diesel engine. That is what we use here in Canada !!

Myopelmariva has a car symbol with the spanner across and it cuts off at 3000 rpm


which engine, most cars have many engines choices.
if the ECU/PCM sets the CAM sensor (CMP) that can be 2 things
loose cam belt, or loose chain, some have belt some have chain.
if the belt is loose, the cam bounces, and the CMP sees that and gets confused, or the sensor is bad. (or just dirty clean it)
RPM limit can be stuck in limphome mode, or lean fuel
or too rich misfire, i see you mech is not so good, here state side any ASE mech would find it fast. (scan tool PIDS)


so enigne which is it. never post engine question to any one, unless you can state the engine, name and number.
let me give and example.
Petrol
  • 1.4 TWINPORT, with 90 PS (66 kW; 89 hp) (from 2005)
  • 1.6 (8v), with 85 PS (63 kW; 84 hp)
  • 1.6 (16v), with 100 PS (74 kW; 99 hp)
  • 1.8, with 125 PS (92 kW; 123 hp)
Both 1.4 and 1.8 are available as flexfuel in Brazil.
Diesel
  • 1.7 CDTI, with 100 PS (74 kW; 99 hp)
Petrol
  • 1.4 TWINPORT, with 90 PS (66 kW; 89 hp)
  • 1.6 TWINPORT 105 PS (77 kW; 104 hp)
  • 1.8, with 125 PS (92 kW; 123 hp)
  • 1.6 Turbo, with 180 PS (132 kW; 178 hp) (OPC/VXR model only)
Diesel
  • 1.3 CDTI, with 75 PS (55 kW; 74 hp)
  • 1.7 CDTI, with 100 PS (74 kW; 99 hp)
more....

it is near impossible to fix any engine not know which one it is.
and 10x on line. we are blind here, but not your mech.
i looks and goes, ahh, z16XSE or...

but your mech, fire him, find a real one and one that has a scan tool., knows how to read live data and how to check the belt for loose or slipped. or just a dirty cmp.
btw those errors mean the CMP is reading wrong. only why is in question, it is reading wrong. for sure.
the CMP can trip for 1 pulse in 10 bad. its a very sensitive test.
with VTT engines more parts to mess cam locations or jog.
variable valve timing, that.

post back your engine. on our cars the VIN tells this tale.
on non usa cars the fire wall chassis tag has engine type clearly stated. read it.

We have a 1999 F-350 7.3 desil Truck that can only be started with starting fluid. Once started it spits and sputters. We have replaced the fuel pump and filter and the engine possitioning sensor. We also...


Hm. it's a Diesel. So, it uses glow plugs.
Diesel engines work on the principle of exploding diesel fuel vs. burning gasoline fuel.

If it is spitting and sputtering, there is a possible problem with the fuel that is in the tank.

You see, Diesel fuel, according to Wikipedia, changes its formula drastically from winter to summer to work best in winter or summer climates.

I would drain the Diesel out of the tank and replace with fresh Diesel from your local Diesel Fueling station.

If this doesn't work, then, you may have a sensor gone awry or a compression issue.

Good luck on this one.

Diesal engin will not start without eather


check the glow plugs circuit to ensure that the pre-combustion chambers are being suficiently heated. also fuel cetane rating must be high enough for cold weather starting. diesel will gel when cold if the cetane rating is low non winter diesel that is. A good fuel stabilizer could help. hope this helps

The most critical things in owning a diesel are the air and fuel filters. Irregardless of what the owner's manual may say change the fuel filters at least twice a year, spring and fall because the oil companies change their additives in the fuel twice a tear. The air filter should be done at least once a year. Keep a close eye on the water in fuel warning and fix it when it shows up, your owner's manual should have the steps to take. Most diesel's call for 15-40 diesel oil, there's no reason not to stay with it. Pick up a copy of Haynes Diesel Engine Repair Manual, part # 10330.It will save you a lot of time,money and headaches. It costs about $20 at the auto parts store.
Before you make any decisions to start tinkering with it to increase power do your research. Diesel's work well because everything is balanced and even though supplier's may claim you won't have to change anything else, don't bet on it. Bank's is a reliable authority on diesel performance to judge decisions on. Hope this helps.

Remove the starter, remove the flywheel dust shield, remove the motor mounts center bolt, jack the engine as far up as possiable, this will then give you access to the oil pan bolts.
