01 PSD shut down and will not restart
My buddy said he was coasting down to a red light and she just shut down on him with no warning, just like you turned the key off.
Here is what we have tried so far;
Listened to fuel pump and checked fuel filter bowl
Hooked predator to computer and watched engine RPM and ICP and a few others
We noticed that the ICP when cranking read 15MPA with the ICP un plugged and sometimes 0 and sometimes 15MPA with it plugged up. We also noticed the HPOP reservoir was empty so we refilled it with no change. I’m thinking the next step is to rig up a mechanical gauge and check the oil pressure to see what it is while cranking.
My next questions is “if” the oil pressure is not there while cranking what could cause it?
I’m thinking maybe an injector went bad and is not letting the pump build pressure, is that possible? What would cause the HPOP reservoir to run empty? Any other likely culprits?
