Rover 45 TD will not start
Hope someone can help on this….
I’ve got a Rover 45 turbo diesel (2000 year) that’s refusing to start…
The problem began when I was driving home – I had driven about 200 yards when I pulled out from behind some parked cars and the engine stalled. Coasted to a stop, I re-started it (very rough) but it cut-out again…..hasn’t started since.
The nice AA man came and checked fuel pressure at injectors (=OK), bled any air from fuel system (=OK), checked connectors (=OK) and all fuses/relays (=OK)…but couldn’t find problem, so had to be towed home.
Mobile mechanic came out next day and did similar checks and concluded it was probably the crankshaft sensor – which he replaced, but it still wouldn’t start…
Diagnostic man traced a fault to the fuel injection pump (solenoid valve?-not sure) and No.1 cylinder injector sensor. He thought the car should still run if it was the injector sensor, so I guess fuel injection pump is the prime suspect…££££!!!!
What concerns me though is that the central locking has gone wobbly at the same time (press fob key to lock and its locks ok, but immediately ‘bounces’ open again(all doors are shut)). Also, the rear screen heater has stopped working.
I thought this might be result of AA man getting a bit over-zealous with the fuses/relay checking but I’ve re-checked them and they all seem fine…
I don’t was to spend big on a fuel injection pump until I’m sure its not something else (ecu?)
Any help / advice would be appreciated!
