  1. New update After treating cylinders #2+#3 with oil. Compression returned to #2 but not #3 (furthest from injection pump). Also observed #3 injector pointed end is mushroom by what looks like contact/hammered. That's not good!.
  2. Fighting same battle. Curiously following along.
  3. Update: Removed all three injectors. Only injector to push out while turning engine by hand was injector closest to the injection pump. Is that considered #1? Others no movement what so ever.:( Though there seemed no difference as we cycled thru. Will try oil down into cylinder and hand turn to see if any change on those dead two cylinders Guess its time for a proper compression test. Closest MB dealer is 200 km away but am going that way end of next week so will grab new injector copper sealing washers then. May have to ditch project for the winter as weather is expected to be turning here in southern BC and need to get family car parked back in garage.
  4. Good info there thanks stickman007. Will push on and see how it goes
  5. In garage today: - Fuel being pumped in and out of fuel filter. Sooooo not fuel filter - SAM plug still pristine. Low pressure pump running. - Time chain not broken - Alternator turning No means of checking compression today. Any other check that could be done??
  6. Compression? Trying to get through all home garage troubleshooting before diesel shop visit. Seems somewhat improbable to cause shutdown out of the blue I would think. Fuel filter? Considered that but once again just cut out with no warning and no others with similar story? Obviously the SAM 11-3 connector is the main culprit. Strangely mine is very pristine and the pins look good. Which led me to ask the question if there may be something simple I overlooked. That being said after reading everything I can find on issue their are others that have had failure with no/or very little obvious signs. Low beams and fuel pump relays seam to be in the works for all of us at some point. Just wish I had more obvious attrition to solidify this is the cause! Pushed car out of garage a couple days ago so wife could have here parking spot back. Will get back at more troubleshooting/repairing it in coming days.
  7. Hey Guys/Gals Long time lurker. Minimal poster here. First off let me thank all of you. Over the years I have found many many helpful tips and support from this site. Invaluable in such tasks as Turbo core replacement, intercooler replacement, glow plugs, axle seals etc. You know, all the hands on these little cars give us. Lol. But on too the show: Our little smart died a couple nights ago under full gallop and would not start. Turns over but no fire. The strong turning over with something missing eg. electrical/sensor wise. If you have experienced this you will know what i mean. Checked all the usual suspects: - SAM connector 11-3, pin 10 all good - grounds at turbo inlet pipe and 8 into 1 on engine bay good - alternator turning, battery strong and charged - buzzing that i believe is lift pump when key on for approx 5 seconds. - no codes stored or three bars of death --- What would be the next diagnostic to pursue or checks i have missed? Crank sensor?? if so what is diagnosis other than replace and see? Regards Bryan

  9. Any results? Low power and smoke when coming on to boost on mine= Hole in intercooler..:( Just finishing that swap out now. Mine china turbo centre seems to be ok. Installed last fall.
  10. Soooo... how did you get the circlip after all. Any other tips or hints to pass on as I will be going down this road in the coming weeks?
  11. Any one ever try out the Land Rover air/oil seperator discussed here last June?
  12. Same problem here to. Intermittently.Started after removing and reinstalling under trays to install oil pan heater and rerouteing 115v cord.Engine turns over but will not fire. Try 2 or 3 time then starts.Will look into fuel pump connection and SAM terminal fault and report back ASAP.FYI05 Pure CDI with 87,000kms-
