Discovery / Diesel leak
« Last post by Range Rover Ron on May 25, 2018, 10:27:18 »
I've got a problem with a leak on my 2004 Td5 Disco.
There's a pool of fuel in the sunken section of the fuel take where the sender/pump fits.
I've replaced the four fuel pipes and checked that they are sealed and snapped into the unions on the top of the pump.
I've renewed the rubber seal on the pump/sender.
I sat and watched for ages to see if there is a leak on the top of the pump but can see nothing, I've held brown paper all around the top of the pump to show if there is a fine spray coming out of a small unsighted split and found nothing.
The only thing now is for me to take the tank out, which is obviously a big job for me to do on my own, on my drive. The one thing I think I will check is that the seal on the sender/pump is fitted correctly but apart form that I'm not sure where to go from here.
Has anyone had a similar problem.
The problem manifests by fuel leaking down both sides of the fuel tank, due to cornering, then the fuel drops down over the rear chassis legs, while parked overnight and leaves a "dinner plate" size mark on both sides of the Disco on the drive.
Any pointers or suggestions would be much appreciated.
Cheers.

Hi John.
I take it this is a conversion.  Do you know how the pump fits to the engine?  is there a specific model you can replicate?

Jeep / Re: 2006 Jeep 5.7 Hemi Misfire at Low Revs

Sound like something intermitant then, more likely to be electrical than mechanical perhaps.

Is the problem just as bad on both LPG and petrol?  if so it suggests it's not a fueling issue and the clean plugs add weight to that.  If one was black for example I'd think leaky injector.

You can get OBD readers that connect via bluetooth to give you live data as you drive, you could look for a sensor going out of spec as the problem occurs then.

Alternatively do you have the software for installing your LPG system?  mine would allow me to look at things like injector pulse timing as live data, you can use this to see how the ECU responds to the inputs it's seeing.

Just a few thoughts, here's hoping it's something simple and cheap to fix.

Hi all, I'm having difficulty getting into my maps section of my 3500, I've pressed the re-set and disconnected the battery but still get the same message which is that the device was not shut down correctly the last time, please tap the red X next time you turn off. Any suggestions as to how I can resolve this problem, I was hoping to use it tomorrow! I've connected it up to my laptop and the laptop doesn't see it, I've connected to device on the MM top task bar and still no luck!!
