Hi

Was driving back from london today and the car seemed to hesitate and jolt and then the Glow plug light was flashing....at the same time i lost all power in the third lane of the M2 in rush hour...not a good time :sick:

Limped the car back and checked the fault codes... i've got the following:

P0251 and P1121

having search seems to bring up many things that it could be.

I have a new fuel filter to fit tomorrow, but i'm guessing i wont be that lucky.....wheres the next logical thing to start with?..


Thanks

Leakoff test on the injectors. If it cut out it must be bad unless you had another issues
also?

Cam sensor or something also?

It just seemed to hesitate/stutter once then the light started flashing and the Revs just dropped slowly.

If it was the injectors would it not be all the time....i can't get it to happen again today but yesterday I had been driving for an hour or so.

It has just had the dmf, clutch and slave and crank sensor all changed

Check the plug on the sensor, With the engine running give it a wiggle. Beware moving parts though.

Also check the wiring, See if they bolted it all back properly. No loose connections.

Hi Simon,

If you've just had the DMF changed then it might be iron filings on your crank position senor (On the clutch housing under the air supply to the turbo.)

HI Simon.. i agree with purple . it could very well have to do with cam sensor so i would have it changed ...they cost around 20 quid. But you should also have the injector pump checked at a good diesel fuel specialists.. there is not much which can cause complete loss of power in any diesel motor . but these are popular reasons . the cam and possibley but rarely the crank sensor s . both of which cost around the same 20 quid.. but the injector pump is the more usual cause for this . s

Would the cam sensor show up on diagnostic as an intermittent fault or would it throw the fuel pump one up?

Crank sensor was changed at the same tome as the dmf

Thanks for all your hell so far in pointing me in the right direction

Start with the fuel filter and go from there. I had something similar happen to me before and after changing the fuel filter I had no more problems with it. When I emptied the old filter afterwards there was quite a lot of brown sludge came out.
