Water? Engine Limp Mode 3.0 Ducato 2012
Hi - I'm having exactly the same issue - keep going into limp mode - replaced injector 1 as per the diagnostics then OK for about 45 minutes then back to red engine light & limp mode ;-( Now saying injector 2 in faulty but just not convinced. Like you 2012 Ducato 3.0 auto with just 15,000 miles on the clock and only recently discovered water sitting in the injector rail through poor design. I think it may be worse than we're only using occasionally as daily users are probably evaporating any water by running the engine hot more often.
Not sure where to go from here - Fiat diagnostics software feels more like 'best guess' I'm feeling! Any engineers out there who could help steer me in the right direction? As per someone else's suggestion, I took the R/H headlight out and checked underneath for potential water ingress/rusting there but it was totally dry and everything seemed perfectly OK. Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
|roy660||hi thanks for your help i will seal and fix the scuttle tomorrow there is a small engine cover on the engine but there still a lot of water around injectors|
i fitted cheap new ones of ebay with wire on them im going to buy fait ones and refit all of them again i did solder all wires together
i would suggest that you first address the water ingress issue as most smaller engines have a cover on top of the engine to divert the water away
there has been lots of discussions on here in the past about ways to stop the water getting onto the electrics and 1 is to make extra holes in the scuttle and run the water away with added pipework and also to seal the scuttle where it sits on the windscreen
i also remember that there was an issue where the wiring harness chafed under the bonnet
i am surprised yours does not have a cover over the injectors to keep them dry
Another question, when you changed the connector plugs did you use the ones with wires attached and make joints on wires?
Or remove the old plug and re-use the original pin?
Or remake the assembly completely with new plug and pins?
The system requires secure electrical connections to function properly, if you have made poor joints that could be the cause of your problem.
