My Ford Transit Diesel 2007 (camper van)intermitantly loses power and the Engine Malfunction light comes on. If I stop, turn off the engine and restart it a few minutes later everything goes like a charm again. This normally happens when I'm going up hill and the engine is working hard. Most times I can cruise up a hill in 6th gear without a problem. The last time it happened when I was passing a slow vehicle going up hill in 4th gear and I lost power again. Any ideas?

When the engine is under load it uses more fuel then normal .First replace the fuel filter then check the fuel pressure and flow. the pressure and flow are checked with gauges. For a rough check remove the return pipe from the fuel rail, if fuel is flowing there the fuel system should be ok providing the pressure valve is not stuck open. if there is no flow there the pump may be at fault.

SOURCE: Landcruiser GXL 2002 Turbo Diesel - Fuel ? problem

I can only relate this problem to those similar to Ford F150's,,,on the fords it would be bad grounds from the battery to the frame,and engine,,and from the engine to the Firewall.
This would play havoc with the ECM especially when it was damp.
So i can only suggest the obvious to me at least.
Good luck to you.

SOURCE: The malfunction indicator light comes on and off

dear friend-the only reason why this happens when driving is because of the movement.iwould say we should look at earth points and loose connections.

SOURCE: 2007 Tahoe LTZ wiper washer gone crazy

Try replacing the wiper module.It is the part on the wiper motor that does all the functions when you push or turn on the wipers.To replace it you remove the cover from the wiper motor and you will see the circuit board.you can just pry it out with a small screw driver.Most dealerships have these in stock.When you replace it make sure and use a silicone sealer on the cover to keep the water out.Good luck.

SOURCE: Holden Viva- Automatic transmission troubles.

Hey mate, Had exactly the same problem. Suggest you take the car to your local auto transmission repair centre (not holden) and they can check the electrical diagnostics - if it the Transmission inhibitor Switch (as it was on mine - if so should cost you no more than 1 hour labour and about $75 - $95 for the switch.

Ford transit 2007 diesel. The engine light had been on a while my machanic told me the emission control needs changing. But it can drive. My problem is the engine just stopping running properly and now...


Sounds like your mechanic was right. Most likely the exhaust filter has filled and needs to be changed. It's like a rope around your neck for the engine trying to exhale.

My 2007 ford transit loses power and then cuts out


I have a 2.4 diesel 375 nm model and i have been told that the problem is solved by installing the correct fuel filter. Mine loses all power and stops, and the curly light comes on, and I switch it off and start it again. It works every time but is bloody dangerous on a hill when passing someone and towing a trailer.
