3.2 DID Pajero/Montero diesel injection problems

I have just replaced the injector nozzles and glow plugs in my 3.2 DID Pajero (140 000km). Hot starts are taking up to 6 secs followed by a cloud of black smoke. Cold starts are normal. Other than this, consumption is good and power normal.

Is this a leaking injector, a pump problem, or something else? I'm very worried about diesel getting into the sump oil.

SOURCE: Coolant filling up overflow bottle

You may need to ask AAA to put a radiator pressure tester on the resevoir bottle and pump it up to operating pressure(Pressure cap rating) and see if it over pressurises while it is running at operating temp,rev engine up and down and watch what the testers pressure readings do,it should move up and down in sync with the water pump.If the pressure keeps building i would have to believe that combustion chamber gases are over pressurising your cooling system.Also test the pressure cap is functioning within factory specs.

warm up the engine and turn it off then try to turn the crankshaft pulley with a suitable wrench. if its too hard to turn by hand then the bearings might be too tight.

It's definitely your injection pump seals mate.....common prob with these engines. My 1994 2.8TD was exactly the same until I had the sealls replaced. I went for the complete reconditioning and not just the main seal and it cost me £519 in total. Dunks

SOURCE: 4d56 Pajero Turbo Diesel, blow's alot of smoke

If your car is fitted with Manifold Air Pressure sensor (MAP) check that is operating OK. Sometimes if this is as at fault it can send the wrong signal that the engine is running lean and the engine computer (ECU) in turn compensates by injecting extra fuel. The clouds of smoke are unburnt fuel so not only does it look bad but it is wasteful/costly. The fault on a MAP can evolve slowly and therefore evades the computer diagnostics check for some while before being picked up. Also on the list of things to look at are:- 1) the mass air sensor on the air filter ducting 2) the EGR exhaust gas recirculation valve (perhaps needs a thorough clean) 3) the differential pressure feedback exhaust (DFPE) sensor - lies upstream of the EGR but if faulty can combine to lead to errors in fuel injection quantities.

My pajero 2.8 turbo rattles when cold OK when hot


replace the injector tips as they are squirting and not atomising. They will also be dribbling and that is allowing fuel in before the injection time

My 1992 diesel pajero which is import from japen, has problem with glow control unit, it not working, every morning it hard to start. i had replaced the control unit, it wan't help, does some one


You need to check that you are getting power to the glow plugs, when the light shows on the dash you should have 12V to the glow plugs, if you do have 12V at the glow plugs and it still is having issues starting then your glow plugs may need to be replaced. You can buy them off ebay at reasonable prices.

Glow plugs do not "fire". You may be confusing the function of glow plugs as analagous to spark plugs in a gasoline engine; the purpose of glow plugs is to heat the air-fuel mixture to a temperature that will support the diesel auto-combustion process. The diesel process is not one in which the air-fuel mixture is ignited via spark like a gas engine; rather, the air-fuel mixture undergoes much higher compression and spontaneously explodes, generating the combustion in a self-sustaining manner. High compression produces much higher heat, but before it can begin, heat must be introduced into the system to get it started.

If you're having sluggish engine performance from your diesel engine, you may have fuel system issues such as fuel pump failure or fuel line restrictions (including fuel filter or strainer clogging), etc. At the "worst" end of the spectrum, one of more of your fuel injectors may have a problem - the fuel injectors on the Powerstrokes not only inject the fuel into the combustion chamber, but are also cooled and lubricated by the fuel - if the vehicle has ever been run out of fuel, the injectors may have been damaged and will need to be inspected for replacement.

No electric pulse to injectors on 1994 ford f350 diesel turbo 7.3


Im confused how do you have a direct inject diesel in a truck made 3 years before ford had such a thing 94(suposed to ) has a indirect inject diesel there is no electric wires running to the injectors there's only a pipe with very high pressure fuel running thru it
are you sure your not confusing the glow plug wires ?
they only get power to them for like 30 seconds when first starting it

whats the real problem?

99 ram diesel wont start


Did you check to see if there is power to the glow plugs if not then that may be the problem and if there is power when you cycle the key not to start but for the plugs to warm up you may have a bad glow plugs.

Wont start when hot!


hello there, wow my dream p-up. nissan pathfinder 4x4,  unfortunately i have to settle with my nissan navara truck. anyways, the possible problems would be the injectors and injection pump. injectors are really direct on the combustion chamber so everytime the engine runs it is severely exposed to very high temperatures. the nozzle tips are the ones very much abused. the injectors have 2 seals. the first one which hugs the body of the injectors which is usually made of hard copper and the 2nd is called the chamber washer which is a stainless steel type concaved washer which serves as the nozzle tip seal and heat nozzle tip heat dispenser. if the nozzle tip floats there is a tendency that the tips are flame red due to heat thus, diesel is boiling to the point of turning to vapors enough to push the remaining fuel back to the injection pump when you shut the engine. then the one way valves of the injection pump comes into play. the valves might be weak and due to the high pressure, fuel slowly creeps back into the pump body. hope this helps.
