Mike :

Hello and Welcome to justanswer..

Mike :

My name is MIKE, Im happy to help you with this..

Mike :

Im not entirely sure what you mean when you say " Just been looking at your Renault Master"... but I understand you have one that will not run... Will it start and run at all - or does it just crank?

Customer:

it just cranks

Customer:

it only runs on easy start thers diesil out of injectors but seems low presure

Mike :

Ah hello there...

Mike :

Ok - so it will def run on easy start yes - until thats used up?

Customer:

thats it luvs it lol

Customer:

the stop start solinoid gets very warm is that normal

Mike :

Right Im with you .. In that case.. its not an immobilser fault else it wouldn't run on easy start at all -- The stop solonoind - have you checked its got power to it ?

Mike :

yes it is - #

Customer:

yup its got power but the thing its trying to move seems very tight like a rod goig to shaft

Mike :

Does it have battery voltage - at least 12v ?

Customer:

yes

Mike :

Ok - have you tried to start the engine with the "Innards" of the stop valve removed?

Customer:

yes i removed pin

Mike :

You need to remove the pin and spring then refit the valve -and try it... ( you dont have to remove the spring but its best ) ... are you saying you have essentially done that -and no change?

Customer:

i have picture of pump shall i send it

Mike :

You can do by all means - you need to do that by using the paper clip icon above. But basically, if it wont run even with the stop solonoid out - then it sounds like you have a diesel supply issue - it can be as simple as a clogging filter-

Customer:

Full Size Image

Mike :

Ok I have that - give me a mo-

Mike :

right so you have the pump off... did you check the timing was all ok before hand ?

Customer:

no m8 is a second hand pump to get a solinoid part

Customer:

is there a electric pump in the tank on those renault masters

Mike :

Ah ok ;)

Mike :

Now that is a good question and one that I cannot be sure of tbh.. SOME of these did - others didnt' - the only way to be sure is to give a Renault part dept a call - give them the VIN of the vehilce and they can then tell you if it has or not. But you could bypass the tank / pump filter etc - and supply a gravity feed to the pump - and see if that helps to ID the fault. You do need to be sure its not a restriction or pump issue of course - thats the best way other than using diag equipment -

Mike :

But to - a common fault on these is the crank sensor...playing up - be aware of that .

Mike :

I would suggest check it as above and work through like that ... Itd def not an immob issue though from what you havew said - and with it being stood - the fuel supply and crank sensor are your suspects.

Customer:

ok i will try a new filter and gravity feed it crank sensor ok where do find that do i find that how do i test it

Customer:

so the red light on dash staying on just ignore that ?

Mike :

Indeed. The crank sensor is on the very top of the gearbox where it abuts the engine - held by 2 bolts ( 10mm).. move pipes / wires to see / get at it.. To be honest - testing it you need a meter ( or a diag machine - plug in machine which is best )... but check the actual connection to it as a common fault - Remove the sensor and clean with a piece of emery paper or such like - the magnetic pick up - they get corroded and full of metal bits - enough to stop it starting... then refit and retry .

Customer:

ok will try these jobs in morning

Mike :

No problem at all - Im very glad to have helped... I have switched the rating system on for you - please do click on the Ok / Excellent ratings for me now before you leave...and if you do need to get back to me at all - you can then do so anytime at all - just come back to this here - type further and I wlll then be notified of any response from you and will get back to you. Im always happy to help further if needed... Im here every day !
