Dear friend: i think that your terracan is actually running out of fuel even if the guage shows quater,you can also put the old fuel filter back and try it,we did discover some of the new filters sucking air.

Good day. I had similar problem on my Terracan. I found that when it happens, the fuel level is just below the bottom end of the short rubber pipe where it connects to the top of the plastic seive in the fuel tank. I replaced the rubber pipe, and it seems to be working fine now.
To get ot it, you have to remove the left rear seat, remove the cover below the carpet, then disconnect the pipes and wires and undo the fuel level unit situated in the fuel tank. Remove it carefully and then you can easily replace the short rubber pipe. Hope it helps. Enjoy the day. MarioCpt

My Terracan normally starts on the 2 nd turn of the engine. All of a sudden the engine just turned without starting at all. I waited till the next morning and tried again. It start immediately. I let it...


That code would have been "camshaft position sensor". They may have replaced the old one with a faulty new one, which might account for the blown fuses. Have them try unplugging it to see if it stops blowing fuses. If it does... have them replace that sensor again with another new one.

The replacement they used MIGHT not have even been NEW - it might have been salvaged from another vehicle... or they might have used the wrong one for your Terracan. How much do you trust that shop? You might have the Terracan towed to a different shop if you're not pretty confident about their competence.

Terrano running ruff when under quater of a tank diesel


Depending on your year it could be a weak lift pump not being able to lift the fuel to the injection pump, in which case the injection pump will be quickly damaged as it relies on a steady flow of fuel to lubricate and cool it.
on older models there may be a break in the pickup line inside the tank. Suggest you keep tank above quarter full at all times until you decide what to do..replace lift pump or remove tank and check pickup......

the fuel pick-up in the tank has a sock on it to filter out any large debris to keep it from damaging the fuel pump, that sock can become clogged and prevent adequate amounts of fuel from getting to the pump thereby starving the pump
