1994 Scania 143 loss of power

My scania 143 450hp 14 litre truck has lost power. We have overhauled the injector pump and injectors, which has improved it but under full load it is not holding its power. Has anyone got any suggestions??

Check and adjust the injection timing of the pump and set it to spot on as any degrees retarded will affect performance. Check that there is no boost pressure from the turbo being lost from loose hoses and cracked tubes and intercooler. If you engine has a air compressor with a coiled steel line attached to it before the line is connected to a rubber hose to the tank Then replace the coil as it blocks up with carbon and puts the air compressor under constant load. Check for worn brake pivots as dragging brakes use up HP Finally have the truck chassis dyno tested to check for full pump operation as I had experience where the pump was fully rebuilt but the cam bearings in the pump were not replace and the pump was way off setting. ON a chassis dyno tested in direct gear the reading should ne around 410 hp at the rear wheels depending on the tread of the tyres. The test will show at what rpm\'s the governor in the pump is not performing as the power curve will not follow the set line.

SOURCE: I have a 1994 chevy k1500 preignition knock

open the intake manifold by removing the air cleaner and or hose look on the back side of the plate to see if there is varnish and gum if there is you need to do a top engine clean, You must understand that running that kind of gas will cause varnish and carbon buildup on the pistons and valves. This causes the knock sensor to not to be able to adjust for compression change. It can only advance the timing 50% once the carbon build up is to much it will start knocking. If you want to receive instructions on how to fix this then rate me post a comment and I will give you the two page answer on how to do this. Unless you want to keep buying parts. your choice. I will no longer post it here as I see some think they can just take my answers and copy them.

Hay am having problem on my 144 460 engine idling is picking up an dropping, the truck has no power and i did fitted new injectors


Scania 144 460
sure is a big motor
fuel pump pressure to injector and timing important
uneven cylinder compression pressures may be a cause
lack of power
if it has a turbo would suspect internal crack in turbo index-omyln5yzcl4rshihar4so15z-3-0.jpg

MF 135 3 cylinder Perkins motor. The engine sounds to be missing when under no load; under load she sounds to be firing satisfactorily. The injectors have been serviced and are said to be fine. The


Any engine runs better doing what its built for, but it should not be very noticeable. If you are familiar with this engine, then I would tend to go with your instincts. The injector timing is a likely cause and could be supplying more fuel than you need creating a laboured combustion which evens out under load.
Perkins parts were found everyware around western Australia 20 years ago and were cheap, I'm a bit out of touch on that aspect these days, but they are worth the effort, you should try to find some old school farmers around to speak with, they often have golden and unique solutions.

Adjust the injector pump, your problem is that the injector pump is not compensating for the additional load.

I got a 2.4d toyota that whe overhaul the motor but it still smoke heavy black and under power.whe put a recon pump on and injectors new cam and head and a sprocket on cam for valve timming but it still...


After you reconditioned the motor, pump and injectors, it shouzld work fine. Firstly, recheck the valeve and injection pump timing. If that is ok, then its possible that the exhaust is too blocked and full of carbon and unburnt fuel. I would suggest that you take the car to an exhaust specialist, who can measure the exhaust pressure to see if it is indeed blocked. If so , then you will need to replace it.
Hope this helps

2002 vw bettle tdi surging, only at idle in gear. clears up under power


is this model common rail or does it have an injector pump,injector pump has a built in lift pump and if this is weak then the transfer pressure is low which is causing scavanging.if this is the case then fitting an in line non return valve in the fuel in line can help,but more often than not fitting a low pressure in line fuel pump is a cheaper solution than an injector pump overhaul
