    Someone else has told me the same thing about it running on engine oil. I just bought the car and have only put fuel in it. Drove from Scotland to the south of France and thats when it **** its self. Mechanic down thre said it was the injecter pump. But I dont think so. Any idea on what to do. Do I try an oil change, surely thats not the only problem. Its running rougher now. Cheers

    it could be a faulty injector it would give you all the symptoms that you have ,but your engine would still switch off

  • richochet Oct 08, 2012

    dont know how familiar you are with engines ,but on tick over if you open injector pipe each one seperately you will find the faulty one and your engineshould run smooth when the faulty injector pipe is opened hope this helps also a faulty injector can throw a lot of fuel in thatends up in sump and increases oil level hope ya get it sorted

SOURCE: engine stalls at low revs on my jeep cherokee sport 1995

You can test the throttle sensor with a digital volt ohmeter...test is in chiltons and haynes. I'd go for that first and see if other codes are related and disappear. It won't hurt to clean out the idle air control passageways as well. (should be next to tps on yours)

Make sure the air cleaner is not plugged. Otherwise, check the exhaust system for plugging--catalytic converter(s), muffler(s), or tail pipe crushed. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: have a code po219 engine

The problem may be due to incorrect fuel supplied to the cylinders. This could be caused by a faulty MAF sensor (sensor found right after the air filter) which measures the amount of air that comes in. The car then adjusts the fuel for a correct fuel mixture. This may just need cleaning or there could be leaks in the air passages or vacuum tubes which may cause the incorrect reading or the sensor could be bad.

The TPS could also be faulty or the fuel injection itself. For the injection system, have the pressure tested.

Sounds like you have some valve guide seals bad or broken rings on the pistons that is if it is an oil smoke.If it is a flood smoke it sounds like you have an 02 sensor that has went bad.
