Customer Question
Hi , I have brought...
Hi , I have brought an Isuzu Wizard 3.0 Diesel DOHC Turbo,1999 , the 4jx1 Motor.We have done 800kms in it before it lost power and stopped. It had been running well before with no problems. Oil and water normal, have had a Mechanic look at it as we couldn't get going and had to tow it. He also can't get going and is checking sensors etc , at mo. Could be a top rail pressure problem but don't no. Any ideas ??

Hi , I don't no if injection pump has been checked. What do you mean by running on starting fluid? Mechanic wondering if its a oil pump problem?There seem to be no rail pressure.

AU Auto Mechanic: Tom, ASE Certified Technician replied 5 years ago
There is no fuel pressure at the rail correct?See if spray starting fluid in the intake and it run then the injector pump is bad.

There seemed to be a problem with the oil pressure at rail, but also a fuel pressure problem.we thought pipe in sump had broken off so we overfulled wiht oil to see if she fired into life before taking sump off. have sprayed starting fluid into intake but haven't had any luck starting.

AU Auto Mechanic: Tom, ASE Certified Technician replied 5 years ago
Ok sounds like the injector pump is the issue.Does the engine light come on then go out when cycling the key for its self check?

Sorry don't no but i think engine light does come on then go out as per normal pre starting check , but would have to check this.

AU Auto Mechanic: Tom, ASE Certified Technician replied 5 years ago
If you could then the entire issue is a shorted ECU causing this issue.This needs to be checked next get back to me as soon as you can thanks.
