There are micro organisms that can live in fuel.. Your won't believe the name of them... But they are called "humbugs" anyway if fuel has been setting above 70 degrees and is not used or recieved from a contaminated storage system it will look like there is sediment in the fuel. It will also block filters and destroy a fuel injection system. There are "Biocide " fuel treatment that can get rid of this, go on the web and search it but RACOR is a company that has treatment for this.

I have two pajero's, 2.8 intercool which the engine(4m40) have seized the other one is a 3.5 GDI (6G74) body accident damage. The question is which will be less expensive and less complex : a) to

Simple advice. First as we do not know the accident damage you have on the one Pajero,And the seized engine diesel one you have on the other? I personally recommend you to do a repair search for both vehicles asking garage to have a look on them as is much easier from your side and compare your self the best thing to do after. I believe it is the best way,because from this side of ours anything we say will be surely not completely right and might put you into a risk.

I think the evaporator drain is clogged on my 1996, How did fix the drain and stop the water from fulling up again

Look under the dash, behind the glove box compartment There is a hose about 1/2" diameter, it runs from the heater/aircon blower box and to the flooring( sometimes on the firewall ), pull it out and use a flexible to insert inside the hose tubing.
Pour some water and insert the flexible hose untill all the dirt and grimes come out of that hose. dot that until you make sure that water flows freely from that hose.
Put it back again and its all fix up.
Hope that helps you out.
Thanks for using FixYa!

Stuttering under acceleration, 168,00 mi, original in tank fuel pump.Possible fuel filter plugging?

Real good chance if nothing else replace the filter for maintenance sake every 30,000 miles and while you have it out bang it out on a clean white rag to test for dirt particles/drain into a clean jar to test for water as well, if it is detected you may need to drain the tank, flush the injectors and flush the fuel lines.
Happy Motoring!!

There's a switch on the dash I believe that controls the transmition settings there's normal, hold and power. You are obviously on the power setting, adjust the switch to the middle and the light will go out.

Well, I came up empty handed in my attempts to get detailed tech information on the 2.5 turbo-diesel, but I do have some ideas based on my general diesel experience and from your description of the problem.

Diesel fuel is VERY prone to pick up contaminants and especially water... most diesel configurations have some sophisticated filter systems to help deal with this... but good maintenance calls for the occassional adding of a can of diesel fuel conditioner to the tank, to help remove water and contaminants. In severe cases, the entire fuel system has to be torn down and cleaned, including draining and flushing of the fuel tank... and ALL filters should be changed.

Since they force flushed diesel through the system and got you running again, I am inclined to believe you have a dirty fuel problem. I would recommend they again flush your system, but also drain and flush clean the fuel tank AND change the filters... Have them capture some of the old fuel from the tank in a quart glass jar, and have someone examine it for evidence of contamination... water will separate and collect at the bottom (unfortunately, water does not separate from diesel as well as it does gasoline... that's why fuel contamination is such aproblem!)

And since the problem didn't come back until you refueled, I'd make sure the new diesel fuel you get be checked BEFORE you put it in the tank!!!

Finally, get in the habit of adding fuel conditioner periodically to help keep this problem from coming back too soon. Ask one of your mechanics about that, or collar a truck driver and get his advice on the subject!

Good luck Hellie11, don't be shy to ask for more help or post a comment, and if you need, you can e-mail me directly at
