My citroen ds3 Diesel engine locks up

My 2010 citroen ds3 1.4 diesel timing belt teeth ripped off. After fitting a new timing belt kit and water pump, discovered that the engine locked up after a quarter turn, removed the cylinder head and found valves had come into contact with the pistons, replaced the bent valves and broken cam followers. Checked that crank shaft could rotate when the cylinder head was off and seemed ok. checked the camshaft and valve operation wen the cylinder head was off too, all seemed ok! After rebuilding it, I fitted the timing belt once again locking the camshaft with an 8mm pin and locking the crankshaft pulley with a 6mm pin where instructed. When I rotate the engine (clockwise) about 1 quarter turn it locks up. How can this be? I also checked key ways, also ok!

SOURCE: had a cambelt break on

Its because your pistons on 1&4 are up top that is why your bent valves got bent you are doing exactly the same thing so turn the crank back 15degrees position your cam and reset your crank,it seems to me you may be out of your depth lets hope not or it may be expensive

How do i reduse the flow on my diesel pump on a citroen berlingo vna thanks


I am not sure why you should want to reduce the capacity of your diesel pump. Perhaps you would enlighten me?

The diesel system always has a surplus capacity to allow more diesel to be pumped to the injectors than they could possibly need. This cuts the chances of vapour locks, air bubbles, cavitation and suchlike and as the surplus is returned to the fuel tank it is also an essential part of the cooling of the fuel system and it is for this reason, certainly in hot weather, it is unwise to operate a diesel engine with less than half a tank of fuel.

In the case of a conventional diesel pump the surplus fuel flow is governed by valves and graded holes but in the case of the modern common rail system the flow is mostly controlled by a pressure regulator and the rail pressure is constantly monitored by the engine management system via a pressure sensor.

Citroen Berlingo 1.9d. 2002. Fitted with DELPHI injector pump. Timing of cam belt & flywheel is by locking


I have been doing research on the Delphi pump and it apparently is associated with lucas/cav and as such is timed by the use of a dial test indicator that, through the use of a plunger and cam, runs on the cam block in the pump and determines when injection begins. Initial timing is to set the flywheel on the injection timing mark and the pump flange mark set on the timing case mark. To get it exact I would recommend that you have a diesel pump shop do the timing using the correct tools. As the pump is not electronic as such (from my research into Delphi ) it is basically a manual injector with a electronic controlled governor. Any way the best advice is to have a pump expert set the timing.

Fitting new cambelt on a honda civic 1.7d 2003 after cambelt failure need diesel pump timing mark.


You will need a Locking pin kit for timing the Pump to the Engine - and of course detailed instructions so that you do not damage anything - which can cost you quite a bit of money.

I beleive that your engine is an Izuzu. In any event, you will need to use the alignment/Locking pins on the Engine AND the Injector Pump.

Driving down the road and staled


Is the car diesel or petrol?

If a diesel, you might check the diesel pump drive belt (at the right side of engine when looking at the engine from front of car). It's possible the teeth on the belt have stripped and put the pump timing out. An alternative may be a "stop solenoid" failure. The solenoid stops diesel getting to the injectors when the "ignition" is turned off and "stalls" the engine.

I don't know if the injector pump on a petrol engine has a similar setup as a diesel but it might be worth checking.
