1997 MDD Walker Mower Diesel engine cuts out when cooling fan goes on high speed and reversing direction.

Fuel shut off solenoid drops out and shuts engine down, starts again straightaway.... I think I fixed it: After 3 days of many dead ends and trials I managed to fix the problem by piggybacking another earth wire to the black wire (earth) on the fuel shut off solenoid to a good clean earth on the mower. The original earth wire must have had a poor contact making the coil on the fuel shut off solenoid drop out when the cooling fan cut in at high speed for reversing direction and drawing a lot of current. Will now clean up the original earth wire at the body end near the battery (not in a easy spot to get at).

Charlie. You have replaced the ECM on your van?.
Kedwin,, Your problem is, the computer on that 3.3 L.
Need to be programed with the VIN nember of your car.
The Antitheft System will disable the injectors due a incorrect VIN, Bucause the body computer is not recieve the correct pasword between 5 seconds after start up.
YOU have 2 options. 1 get a ALOHA Smith. some of they have the computer required to program ECMs.

The other option is: Get a new ECM from the dealer, They will program if ask for that.

NOTE:::::: Other way is . Put the body control module with the computer from the same car.

OK... I hope this work for yours.
If NOT letme know I can look for more information.
Thank you.

SOURCE: 04 dodge diesel cuts out while driving at speed

Hi. I had the same problem on my 2004 Dodge Ram 3500 Cummins. I went to the dealer and they did a bunch of diagnostics and they replaced my fuel pump. At the same time they put in a retrofit kit that moved the fuel pump to the inside of the gas tank. I have not had the problem since. The cost was about $1,200, but my 100,000 mile drivetrain warranty covered it and I had to pay the $100 deductible.

SOURCE: replace fuel pump in 94 camaro without dropping the rearend?

I wouldnt cut a hole cuz the tank is about an inch away from your body . It is possible cuz my buddy did it to his 91 TBI really slow camaro . He made a door and had to cut his metal fuel lines and use hose clamps and rubber fuel lines to put it back together . It wont work on a 4th gen unless you cut a huge hole . Its a total barefoot redneck way to do it . Ive changed 4 in my 3rd gen (autozone pumps) back in the day and 3 in my 4th gen . Its not a easy task but you will spend as much time trying to cut a hole and fish your high pressure lines out of the way and fishing the whole sending unit out of your fabricated hole not to mention its a unibody and doesnt need holes in it or GM woulda put a door in from the factory . Drop your muffler all your suspension and the two 18mm bolts from your rear control arms and drop the rearend . Everything is out of the way then its 2 15mm bolts to loosen your tank straps and pop off your fuel lines which are plastic on a 4th gen and metal on a 3rd , and your there . Pop your retainer ring change the pickup screen (sock) when you change the pump then reverse the process . It usually takes 4 or 5 hours of hardcore wrenching but it gets easy after you change a few .The exhaust was the hardest to get off for me working off jackstands with a basic tool set . Lol cut it all off and replace it with a flowmaster cat back , its way easier and you will love the sound especially with headers . Its your car but im sure that most everyone who knows how to wrench , especially f bodys like myself will agree with me . Ive had both my cars tore apart and my 96 TA is gettting a 500 horse lt1 built for it as we speak . Its sat for 3 years so ill have to change my pump again no doubt . Oh buy a good bran name pump like an original Ac Delco or a good aftermarket one from summitt

You have a problem in the fuel pump relay circuit for sure then. I'm betting the relay, but it could be that dropping resistor.

1981 mitsubishi sigma won't turn off


It was a very common problem on carbureted cars, so common it was given a name: dieseling. You know, as how a diesel engine will run without spark plugs. You shut a hot engine off, there is still a little gas in the intake, and maybe the carburetor still drips a few drops down the throat. The crankshaft is still turning, so gas still gets into the hot combustion chambers, so hot it can still ignite the remaining gas, and you have "dieseling".
To rectify it, manufacturers years ago began putting an electrical solenoid in the carb's main fuel passage to stop fuel flow as soon as engine is shut off. They called this a fuel cut solenoid, fuel shut off solenoid, idle stop solenoid, or an anti-dieseling solenoid. I know datsuns had this solenoid at least as far back as the early '70's. Works very simply: turn the key on and solenoid was energized, retracting a plunger pin in the fuel passage. Turn key off and solenoid gets no power, so a spring inside the solenoid pushed the plunger back into the fuel passage. It almost entirely eliminated the problem, as long as the carburetor was adjusted correctly.
Actually, I think your '81 should or might have this fuel cut solenoid on the carburetor, and if so it may be inoperative and needs replacing. Not very expensive, and easy to replace- just screws out. Some had only a single wire connector, and some had two wires to them. It would probably be the only electrical to the carb, other than any electrical going to an electric choke, if so equipped.
Happy motoring with the old mits, Sarah. I still have an old Datsun pick-up, and now an '87 Sentra, carbureted unfortunately, lol.

Truck die when you turn AC fan speed on high 1988 peterbilt


Sounds like a supply problem ,the connections in the fuse board or the supply from the battery are corroded causing a high resistance and when the fan is turned on this causes a power drop thats allowing the fuel shut off or stop valve from staying open causing the engine to stop as its a diesel .Us old fleet vehicle fitters never die we just answer questions on here because the back breaking hard work of keeping the drivers on the road kills us off

Radiator fan wont run at high speed


do you mean high engine speed or fan speed.
if fan speed is slow then motor in the fan is getting bad.
if your talking about running engine, then could be nothing because the sensor tell it not to..like running down the road it cools the car down and engine temp drops slightly enough to cut sensor off.

Vehicle will not shut off with key.daytime lights and dash lights shut off but not the motor


is it a diesel?

If so (and i think it is from the fault) then its a sticking fuel solenoid, this cuts the fuel supply when the engine is switched off as diesels need no electricity to run so its a strangler type device to choke the engine by stopping the fuel, they can stick in the on position and the engine will not stop with the key.

Check out clarks-garage.com he has a complete troubleshooting guide for your cooling system along with a schematic. In short, check the low speed resistor on the firewall. Should be around one ohm.

2000 kia sportage new heater core no heat


You most likely have air in the cooling system.You would need to bleed the cooling system of air.There should have bleed screws near water neck,or thermostat.Do this cold.Remove the radiator cap and fill full.Then start the engine and loosen the screws and watch for nothing but coolant to flow out(no air or bubbles).When you are sure the air is gone out of the cooling system,shut the bleeder screw off,and fill radiator up and test to see that engine runs cool,and you have heat at all speeds and rpm s.The electric cooling fan should come on at a tempuratue of about 215 or so.But just as important,the cooling fan should cut off at a lower tempurature.If the cooling fan does not do this,you still have air in the system.If you can not get the air out this way,then do this.Remove the radiator cap and reservoir cap and fill them both up full.The reservoir needs to be over the fill mark a good deal.Replace the caps.Start the engine with ac and heat off.Let it run until the engine gets to about 212 or 215 degrees and shut the engine off.Wait about 30 minutes and check the reservoir to see if the coolant has dropped.It should have dropped.If the reservoir has dropped or not ,do this again and again untill the reservoir drops in coolant level,and engine temp is good(fan goes on and goes off).Remember to refill the reservoir as needed as it drops,not to run out of coolant.

My car wont start, 1997 vauxhall astra 1.7 turbo diesel


This sounds like a problem in the fuel shut off circuit. When you turn the key on, it energizes the fuel shut off solenoid on the injection pump. When you turn off the key, power is removed and the pump is moved by spring to the fuel off position. Check for power at this terminal when you are having a problem, ( with the key on) If no power then I would check the wiring and connectors from this connection to the Ignition key. I believe it is wired direct. That can be checked at http://www.alldata.com/products/index.jsp

subscribe3 and get a wiring schematic for the car and see if it is wired direct to the ign switch of from a relay, I am sure it is a connection problem if you have no power.

A 1.7 diesel even if turboed, is dead slow in any vehicle let alone a van. Enjoy the fuel economy

good luck
