Too COLD ? Shifter doesn't go to Reverse or N from Park

If you get this problem... just run your engine for awhile with heater at full HOT to warm all the controls up. Shifter 'safety neutral switch' freezes up and gets stuck. It should free up as soon as temp inside gets better.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS

Re: Wet feet-need help

Hi Guys, My Buddy Edwin 'the dude' does the job for $75. To get it sealed properly, you have to take the panels off (left & right sides) with headlights removed and expose the seams which is the real problem (assuming there are no leaks from the windshield). It would take a couple of hours to do. If...

Re: Oh ~ my ~ God.... :O

Hey Falco,

I'm really glad PDR 'jose' really worked well for you. With the way you take good care of your baby, you need good quality people to do the job and get it back into shape.

Re: An URGENT CALL FOR HELP! Stuck in LA!

There is a fuel enrichment valve located right on top of the injection pump where a vac hose is connected. The other end goes to the turbo (pressure side). When you go on boost conditions, the pressure actuates the enrichment valve on injection pump and enriches the fuel to the injectors. Low power ...

Re: Still stuck in LA... 2 weeks now.

So the fuel pump failed the bench test - it cut out at 4000rpm. We said the delica has never (and will never) rev to 4000rpm in normal operation so just put it on and let us go, but they said they couldn't let it go with a known defect and they'd look into it. The injectioni pump is never tested at...

Re: An URGENT CALL FOR HELP! Stuck in LA!

There is a solenoid switch on top of the injection pump that is the main control of fuel into the pump. Check that one first assuming the engine is turning and the timing belts are ok. Or an easier way to check if fuel is coming into your system is loosening one of the 17mm lines to the injectors an...

Re: Coolant change

You need to drain coolant from radiator and engine block to complete a good job. Take the under panel cover off below the front diff and on the left side of radiator, you will see the drain plug with a small hose connected to it. turn it counter clock looking at the plug in front (don't forget to ta...

Re: sick pajero

If it was running well when you went to work and suddenly,.. coming home... it's acting differently, I would check your cam timing first. If you can open the upper timing cover and set the engine at TDC (looking into the pulley side) and then check where the position of the cam gear timing mark is. ...

Re: Installing front shocks - findings and a question

There are two non identical sides on the rubber bushings. Trim the ones with the smaller offset using a bench grinder if you have one or a file... that should work. WHen installing, you need to lift the upper shocks using a lever to get the nut on.

Good luck.

Re: Van died at the gas pump!!

Hi Adam, Assuming all your battery terminals and battery posts have been cleaned, you should get at least 14 volts on a voltmeter with the engine on idle. At 14 volts, your alternator is definitely charging your batteries. Next, you need to check the cells of your batteries using a battery load mete...
