Hello I'm Wolfgang. I do need a vin# ***** Second what scan tool are you using? Make and model. Timing marks ???? What did you reference the marks to? Was a timing belt replaced recently? Thanks
The bottom crank tool what is the tool # *****? Also the pic does show that it is not fitting correctly. There are 2 different tools to lock the crank so to make sure that is the correct one. Thanks
Going through the cylinder head rebuild. How did you adjust the lash on the injectors. How was the camshaft ? Was it flat and the lifters was concaved? I want to make sure of the basics. Do you have a vag com? Thanks
so a new cam and lifters was installed?
ok is the crank sensor from the vw dealer or aftermarket?
Engine Speed (RPM) Sensor -G28- electrical harness connector terminalsDiesel Direct Fuel Injection (DFI) Engine Control Module (ECM) -J248- electrical harness connector T121 terminals
1 - 102 ecu
2 - 110 ecu
3 Ground (GND)
you need to do a resistance check from the crank sensor to the ecm make sure that it is less than 1.5 ohm resistance
then make sure that there is no shorts from pin 1 to pin 2 of the crank sensor with the ecu is disconnected.
let me know
yes the code is for implausible signal so the wiring needs to be checked for integrity.
ok pin 3 is your shielded ground to prevent rfi. pin 1 goes to pin 58 of the 60 pin connector and pin 2 to pin 43 of the 60 pin connector so 2 and 3 will have continuity but 1 will not have continuity with 2 and 3 . sorry info wrong on vw end!!
Just need to check unplugged. Does 2-3 with Ecu unplugged has less than 1.5 ohms resistance ?
ok that means the wiring is ok . next is a visual of the tooth wheel make sure that there is no debris or runout of the wheel itself
when you spray wd 40 in the intake will then the car run and stay running?
ok vag com is needed . what scan tool you have? i need to see what the ecu seeing on timing
does it have euro loaded?
i need you from the opening screen select volkswagen then expert mode and then select 01 engine module and then while running select 08 read measure value blocks and then 004 and give me the readings!!
i understand that but the upper gear is adjustable so need to see what is the timing!!
maybe so !!!
Do you have fuel at the pump. Do you know that you have 2 pumps one in the tank. Thst is a transfer pump. This is sounding more like a fuel issue. Disconnect the feed line to the tandem pump and direct wire the tank fuel pump the outer 2 terminals. Note look at the connector the brown wire is ground. Do you have fuel transfer?
Is the glow plugs wet?
Did you reuse the injector harness. Or new one?
It's hard now because the valve cover is on. I have seen the harness gets crossed and causes the injectors not to fire and scrambles the Ecu.
hey can you get a pic of the cam end with the pin in when you have the timing belt gear off on tdc? i hate for you to do that but need to check the basics!!
Do not take the center bolt out just the 3 and take that tooth gear off. But make sure crank set and pin in the top
No tsb on that
There is a pressure port on the tandem pump. Fuel pressure must hold 10 bar when off
I thought you will post a pic with the gear off
this is why because the cam can be out of phase. it can be timed at 3 places.
as you can see there are 3 slots on the cam and i have seen it where the cam is placed wrong position
pic to demonstrate
on the diesel injector there is 2 orings and thd copper crush washer . maybe the orings got chaffed causing leak
are the glow plugs wet?
Is there any flashing yellow light in the dash that has a car with key? Or even when the car is turned on does that light come on?
did you transfer the woodruff key from the old cam to the new one?
please see pic is the cam gear at tdc like that one in the pic?
ok place pin in cam gear top make sure that the pin bottoms out . then loosen the 3 bolts and then rotate smidge the cam gear ccw . then retry to start!!
