If the car is running fine but just has a lack of power it could verywell be something else. The pump by the way since somewhere in the 80's has been put inside the gas tank. The rule of thumb is that should it leak it will leak in the tank and not out in the street. Some cars have a hatch in the back or under the rear seats where you can access the fuel pump. Most cars however you have to remove the tank. Have the fuel pressure checked as well as change the fuel filter before replacing the pump.

Transit pump code p0216 how can i fix this

P0216 DTC - Injection Timing Control Circuit Malfunction and this means the diesel fuel injection pump has a timing failure. This could be that the injection pump timing needs adjusted OR the failure is internal to the injection pump and therefore non-adjustable.

NOTE: If your vehicle is a Dodge Ram with Cummins engine then be aware that fuel delivery problems frequently cause this code. Prolonged fuel delivery problems can cause injection pump failure!

Symptoms of a P0216 DTC may include:
Low power
Crank, but no start
Hard start
Displays an intermittent stumble or miss
Engine may start and then stall
Engine may appear to drive fine but surge at idle

The most frequent cause of this code is a bad injection pump due to poor fuel delivery. Fuel delivery problems could be:
A plugged diesel fuel filter
An in-tank blockage
Air in the fuel due to a cracked in-tank fuel ine above the fuel level
Bad transfer (lift) pump
Injection pump out of time

Possible Solutions: First, simply check if your injection pump timing is adjustable. If so, check the timing and adjust if necessary.

If you think that you may have a fuel delivery problem, then check the lift pump operation. On Dodge Ram with the Cummins engine, the lift pump should produce about 45 oz of diesel in 25 seconds of operation. This can be performed by disconnecting the fuel hose from the injection pump and pumping the fuel into an approved container. Bump the engine over but do not start it. Then the lift pump will operate for 25 seconds. If the fuel is aerated, then check/repair fuel line and recheck.

With the fuel hose connected the fuel pressure should be 10psi. If the fuel delivery tests fail, replace the diesel fuel filter and recheck.

If it still fails then verify there are no restrictions in the fuel tank

Then replace the lift (transfer) pump. IT SHOULD BE NOTED that if this code surfaced after a routine fuel filter replacement or if you have any of the above symptoms after routine fuel filter replacement, then suspect the fuel transfer pump. This occurs because even a weak transfer pump can still provide enough fuel for the engine to run. But when the fuel system\'s prime is lost due to fuel filter replacement, it may not restart again without fixing the fuel delivery problem.

If you found your injection pump to be bad, the lift pump should be checked for operation to protect the new injection pump. This is because weak or low output from lift pump are common cause of injection pump failure. There are some aftermarket kits that can be purchased to warn the operator when the fuel pressure/volume drops to level that could damage the injection pump.

Hope this helps (remember to rating this free answer and leave a testimonial comments).

I have a 1986 f150 with a fuel injected 302. it starts fine, likes to warm up before you shift into gear ( automatic trans). the problem is when you start driving at about 15 mph and make a sharp turn or...

I will try to suggest a few things but you have a lot going on there. First, the missing exhaust sensor can play havoc on the fuel mixture set by the computer.

Second, the sharp turn (In either direction?) can cause the fuel to move from the rear of the tank to the side of the tank unless the tank is full. You have to think about whether this problem is at a low fuel level or not. You can be having starvation issues at these times Or some models have a sensor on the Power steering pump to increase RPM to compensate for steering drag so the truck won't stall at low rpm with high steering demands. Like backing up a trailer.

Third, the loss of power and studdering upon impact, Need some clarity here. Do not know if you mean your truck will continue to run poorly unless you shut the key off and restart or since it has passed the impact it can straighten out on its own and you think its because of turning the Ignition key.

Try new Ignition key for the impact cutoffs.

For awhile some gas stations used filters on their pumps which contained styrofoam miniballs. When the gas stations filters ripped and broke apart the styrofoam miniballs were released and found their way into the fueltanks of a lot of customers. When the fuelpump is shut off, any debris can float away from the fuelpump pickup.

Loose connections, take a plastic or wooden mallet and hit around electric connections that can bounce while the motor is running. Check for corrosion on connectors.

Ask your autoparts store about relays for the fuelpump and computer control relays, check their plugins for corrosion.

I hope I have helped you and would like to know what you found.

I think I am experiencing peoblems with the electronic fuel pump. Is there a way to find out if it is the fuel pump before I take the gas tank apart

You can check for power and ground at the tank.
Also check the fuel pump relay, located on the left
fender. There is also a fuel pump shutoff switch that
shuts off the fuel pump in case of collision. This switch has a reset button on it in case it pops after a
slight bump. The switch is located under the dash to
the left of the steering colum. Hope this helps.

When i turn my car switch on i can hear the fuel pump but does that mean its working

Probably - the pump is generally mounted on the intake location of the fuel tank. Therefore, what you hear should be coming from the rear on top of the tank. If you think that is where, the answer is probably yes.
