Ford Transit 2.2 TDCI cuts out when cold (Mk7)
« on: September 10, 2020, 01:47:11 PM »
Any thoughts on what might be causing this as really starting to do my noodle now!

Starts on the key without hesitation and then runs at idle, clutch in and move it forward, clutch in to stop and it cuts out (stalls). Nice soft stop as well not a harsh stall. Does it about twice, then will run happily all day long until it cools down again.

Changed EGR, serviced it, pump and pilot learns done and no error codes at all. Have logged the signals when it does and you can see it just bleeds away to a stall so not sure what to check or change next :(

I keep meaning to reply to this as I've just gone through something almost identical and there is very little help out there!

It will likely be caused by a failing PCV (Pressure Control Valve) which will stop the common rail building pressure initially, as it warms up a little it seems to respond better. Looking at your log you want to run that again, but change your multiplier value (bottom right of the screen) to 1:1 or 2:1. That'll show the issue far better then you can see from 5:1.

Take a look at my log here:
7139-0

So firstly note the actual fuel rail pressure (Green) which is erratic. The SCV (Suction Control Valve) should be regulating it however with a failing PCV fuel is being erratically returned to the pump even though the rail pressure is low (or at least well below the safe pressure point it should open!), the SCV opens the tap a little more to compensate and then has to dial it back which is why the Green line is jumpy. The blue line is what the ECU is asking for which is a constant pressure to hold the engine at idle.

Now, when we tap the throttle (14.45ms) you can see the ECU asks for a small increase in pressure but that the rail pressure jumps up quickly. Not expecting that, the ECU asks for less pressure and the SCV responds however it's unaware that the PCV is still literally dumping fuel back into the pump so we see the rail pressure collapse. The ECU makes a last ditch effort request to raise the pressure however the engine is already well below 600rpm and consequently our mechanical fuel pump isn't providing pressurised fuel. Opening the SCV further therefore makes no difference and the engine finally stalls at 16.87ms where the ECU ceases asking for any fuel.

You can also see on this graph that the same happens on the initial restart, the rail pressure spikes but there the ECU is in a 'start condition' so the pressure reduction request is more subtle and the rail pressure levels off.

I wonder if this is related to my cold stalling problem?

If its got a Denso fuel system in it (it probably has btw) then it'll be the problem  ::) ;D

In seriousness though, you need to measure the rail pressure to fully understand if this is whats happening. If you start it and then let it idle with no input at all, does the idle start fluctuating after 30/40 seconds? I'm not that up on the 2.0 or its origins, the 2.2 we are discussing here is a Ford/Peugeot joint venture and whilst I am fairly sure they did do a 2.0, I'm uncertain if that ever made its way into the Galaxy however Ford have been with Denso for a fair few years now so chances are this is along the lines of what you have with that engine.

THANKS!

Thats really helpful and I will relog it tonight. What am I looking to log? Same as yours? What are they?

Log these four, remember the more PIDS you add the slower the response rate so keep it to just the four or even just the top two.


FRP, Kpa
Fuel Rail Pressure in Kilopascals. Shows rail pressure as calculated.

FRP_DSD, Kpa
Fuel Rail Pressure, Desired (in Kilopascals). Shows requested pressure from the ECU

FRP_V, V
Fuel Rail Pressure, Voltage. Shows the signal value from the rail sensor. Ie, the raw signal

RPM
Log it with the revs as well so you can see when the engine starts to die.
