Question about 2006 Fiat Strada

1 Answer

Hi, I have a Citroen Dispatch van that I fitted a secondary heater to the van before the filter so that I could run on waste vegetable oil. The van has been running fine but the other day just stopped dead. My mechanic has changed the fuel filter and tried starting it with easy start, the deisel is coming up at far as the new filter but is not going any further ie the injectors. Could this be the immobiliser? or what else can you suggest Have you any suggestions please?

Think you have cooked the injector pump ,citreons do not normally have electrics problems compared to the bane of my life RENAULTS ,was their white crystals in the fuel filter by any chance that looked like sugar?? if so then you have killed the injector pump,anyway nice to answer questions on real cars and not these gas guzzling CO2 polution machines where they think its a god given right to have a pick up truck with a 6litre petrol engine to drive to the pub in .

Citroen Dispatch 2003 2.0Hdi wont rev beyond 3000. getting "secondary heating device" fault , and have renewed all heater plugs and pre post heat relay and repaired lots of chaffed wires in the plasti

right i think ignore the key reader coil as obviously its been disconnected or the chip has been tapped to the transponder which is a trick of mine to save money on expensive keys and dealer charges for programming ,now as for the problem here ?? well it could be multi problems caused by someone like myself from bypassing the immobilisor inside the computer by soldering the legs on the across between the collector and the emmitor ????? no more on that dont want no thieving boy racers knowing how to do things ,Right now iam most likely completely wrong here but i would renew the fly by wire unit on the throttle pedal end here for starters then see what happens .Why had all this before with a renault laguna showing all these funny codes and the owner spent well over a 1000 euros in the renault garage before it was taken to another dealer who changed the pedal sensor in half hour and it was cured.To me the secondary heating device would or could mean a heating element device inside the fuel pump and maybe one in the filter to stop the diesel from freezing ,now in my time we done this with a rag tied to a tyre lever dipped in the tank and then set alight to warm up the fuel lines and the glass primary filter,push the cold start device in on the inline injector pump,spray of easy start down the air filter and crank for no more than 20 seconds ,repeat twice and if no start then tow it around the yard with ford trader artic unit that we left inside the workshop .Memories ??

I have a citroen dispatch and a warning light on the dash keeps coming on, it looks like a shower head, what is this?

Hi, i'm pretty sure that it's the warning light to tell you to drain the water trap on the bottom of the diesel filter.
Hope that helps Matt...
