It resembles a fat muffler or catalytic converter. Dealer said I have head issues with contaminated oil and water in the injectors, and there answer was I needed a new head or engine as a new engine was only £400 more. In some cases the can be a no fault condition just that the beast can be experienced as being down on power, but it does cause early sooting up of the exhaust filter so a regen is necessasary for temporary relief but it all comes back after about 400 to 500 miles of use. I'll update again later when I know more Will check later but only code was an egr related one Going to reset values for the new egr and read for stored codes. In later car models, the car's computer can usually keep the vehicle running, but the engine warning light on the dashboard goes on to warn the driver. I also put another air flow meter on just to be sure, as I managed to buy a cheap used one.
Had the P0087 code come up on the sprinter. Need help with a P2243 code? Hello I was wondering if anyone had come accross this situation before or heard of this posibl diagnosis. Update 21st Dec '15 I've fitted the blanking plate this weekend and although the error didn't clear immediately it did after a short drive and hasn't come back after a few days of driving. This was based on the live readings from the star diagnostics and experience. All cleared apart from nox sensor. This time we traced it down to the throttle body. This temperature increase causes trapped soot particles to burn and be released through the muffler and tailpipe as ions of nitrogen and oxygen.
I know I need to take the dpf to a specialist for a clean, but would a damaged head really block a dpf. In both instances these units have had reman' turbos installed by other shops only to experience turbo drift faults soon after repair. Additional comments for consideration regarding the P2243 code Code P2243 is caused most commonly from an internal failure of the reference voltage circuit inside the O2 sensor. Here is a picture of my engine with the cover off. So he went off and spoke to one of the head tech guys at another merc main dealer who confirmed that either the dpf had taken the turbo out or the turbo had gone and taken the dpf out.
About ready to buy a autel ds708 to see what's wrong The oil is 5w-40 weight. For a week while they played with it, and then they suggested I might ned a new air flow meter, but would have to pay for it whether it fixed the issue or not. I guess next step is to get the boost and vacuum values checked. As a result, oxygen sensors are likely to report fuel mixture problems. This will also cause the vehicle to fail any emissions testing. They were unable to force a regen, as they say the engine was getting to hot so regen was aborted. He came out and immediately suggested that the dpf clean hadn't worked and was still blocked or partially blocked, this turned out to be the cae as again the sensors in the dpf were full of ash and soon again after on,y running 20 miles.
Shame you are not in Colorado! Engine just stopped running as we came down the hill into town, it immediately restarted, happened twice this morning. Qualification for membership is for owners of such cars and true enthusiasm for the marque. Now I was informed that they had dealer spec software, which clearly wasn't the case. Having done some dynamic tests with scan input I focused in on the throttle body and pressure charge sensor. I have had to resort to a baking process to clear out the soot in extreme cases. Vehicle was a bit more responsive too with it cleared. It's an intermittent fault at the moment sometimes it's fine other times not, but it is only doing about 17 mpg down from 27 mpg before all the issues.
Dodge dealer said one glow plug won't affect it. Also the car paint ought to be in good condition because that reduces the chances of rust taking over the body of your car. All good, for about fifty miles but it's come back again. Best of luck but you must get that glow plug issue fixed otherwise it will bung itself up again with carbon. What oil is this beast been run on? The other is the diagnosis culture in dealerships. He also spotted a noise with the turbo which none of us had paid any attention to. Very easy job to replace.
Long story short I change the fuel filter, reset the computer to get rid of error code, and the problem has gone completely away. Go for a code clear! If not, where is it? Now as I've never lost any water never had any over heating issues, and the temp warning light has never come on or flashed, I thought maybe bad diesel, but they are telling me fuel filter which is under 10 000 miles old is clean and no water in the filter. So again I removed the van from them, and took it home once again. All cleared apart from nox sensor. Regardless of how you approach it, you should get this fixed right away. Passive regeneration systems are normally activated when the vehicle is parked and the process may take several hours to accomplish once it is begun.
So evn though ive been told it is clean, ive ordered a new one along with the bypass valve attached to it. Codes of this type are often the result of the vehicle being out of reductant fluid or having the wrong type of replacement fluid. That however is not always the answer and the blasted thing faults out soon after what was apparently a satisfactory repair frustrating the customer; some of this appears in posts on this forum including yours! So he went off and spoke to one of the head tech guys at another merc main dealer who confirmed that either the dpf had taken the turbo out or the turbo had gone and taken the dpf out. The solution is here : P244B Possible Solution: The crankshaft sensor signals the fuel injection computer or the ignition control when the cylinders are firing. Update hopefully within 24 hours. The van has about 40k. Now if it was a head gasket i'd only expect to see water ingress on 1 or 2 injectors not 4.
The converter is essentially an afterburner that cleans up the exhaust after it exits the engine. There is a loud pump noise under the seat that will not go out when I turn the ignition key on, while running, and briefly after the ignition key is off. I would like to get my hands on this 'un!. So with this information and the van back together I drove it slowly to the garage who had cleaned the dpf I had no power what so ever and just limped it over to them. Kirk Thanks for the write up and it helps to form a failure and fault pattern.
Thanks for all the info you give us. I hope this info helps. Cheers Dennis After a lot of hassle with this van. Cheers Dennis Guys Here is some new info I can shed on clearing this code. I would proceed by connecting the scanner to the vehicle diagnostic connector and retrieving all stored codes and freeze frame data.
