SOURCE: fuel starvation mazda bongo
Bongo 2.5 Tdi. WL-T.
Everything fine untill 20 minutes after fueling up the engine started to run rough when stopped(at idle). I shut down. Couldn't restart. Next morning started up and ran fine. later on, wouldn't start easily and when it did couldn't rev above 800rpm. another time started but no power.
Seems like fuel starvation. I just bought the van and have sent away for workbook, fuel filter, glow plugs etc. Where is the fuel filter located? I see where the fuel line goes in to the FCU (or flow devider) is this where i should check presssure. I know a little about petrol engines but nothing about TDI. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

no im a mechanic it sounds like that you have an air lock in the cooling system .i am familiar with ford freda and bongo and the design where the engine is is a bit far from the radiator ,so the problem with air locks magnifies.really the solution is just drain the water and refill it slowly while you are pressing and releasing,just repeat the action on the top radiator hose to get rid of any air trapping within the system,it's as simple as that really.you want it to have just water and no air as this will cause a blockage.

Your IACV idle air control valve has gone bad . When you put the car in gear does it take off and accelerate to about 50 MPH without touching the gas pedal ? Had the same problem. Part from Mitsubishi is about $435 PN # MR578268. It is about $30 to $50 dollars on any other car. If this is the problem, the IACV is located on the throttle body and is held on with three screws. I purchased the whole throttle body at a salvage yard for $40, took the IACV off and put it on my throttle body. Car works normal for now, I am looking for another spare. If enough people complain to MItsubishi and www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov
