Poor running MG ZS TD
Bit of a long story/saga.
Drove the MG ZS TD beforehand, one engine swap and an EGR blank off later, now I have a poorly running car. I swapped the pump and injectors from the original engine so known to be good/OK.
It hunts all over the place, revs up on its own, tries to cut out, cuts out, struggles to restart.
(restarts easier if I lock it with the key and then the unlock with the fob, coincidence maybe??)
If I hold the throttle open at a constant position the needle on the rev counter jumps all over the place, drops to zero and bounces around (just like a petrol engine with a faulty coil/HT circuit.
One of the engine management lights was on as I disconnected the Air mass meter beforehand, but driving it down the farm track brought the other engine management light on as well.
The fault codes I got on the reader are -
P0113 Intake Air Temperature Sensor 1 circuit high.
P0102 Mass or Volume Air Flow A circuit low.
P0336 Crankshaft Position Sensor A circuit range/performance.
I have pictures and videos if I knew how to upload them, lol.
I have bought a aftermarket air mass meter to fit and cleared the codes so far.
Do the other fault codes EML's sound familiar to anyone?
