Hi, my Piaggio Porter van (2008) has just spluttered to a halt,

Resolved Question:

Hi, my Piaggio Porter van (2008) has just spluttered to a halt, it will not start. The Engine Management system warning light came on before it finally stopped.

Tomorrow I will examine the engine for anything obvious such as loose wires, I will check the spark plugs, oil water levels.

Customer :

How can I check, I used the unleaded as normal

Mike :

Ok — do you have a printed receipt for the fuel — if so — check that — check to see you havn’t accidently put diesel in?

Customer :

I filled three cans with the same fuel for my outboard engine lawn mower, I will go check them.

Mike :

😉 Ok — its an easy mistake — and you wouldn’t be the first by any means.

Customer :

Hi Mike, I’ve just poured a drop from one of the cans into a jug, it smells like petrol and is a light yellow in colour (it doesn’t have the diesel smell, I’m a farmer and use red diesel at my farm). I have my petrol on account so I can’t check until tomorrow to see what they’ve recorded but I’m 99% sure I used the green pump.

Mike :

Hi again — Ok thank you for that. Its just that we dont want to miss the obvious. so that really does need to be sure.

Mike :

You can also have a sniff at the filler cap on the van — see if there is any signs of diesel there. After that. you can check by disconnecting a pipe in the engine bay — and pump some though and check..

Mike :

After that. if you find there is diesel in it — it will have to be got out — tank drained — fuel lines cleaned — and go from there. IF its not that — you then need to be checking for spark and fuel delivery to the engine — These can have faults with sensors cauing a sut uot — crank sensor etc. and even general fuel pump failure. so all these would have to be checked through — working through the basics as it were..

Mike :

That should read sensors. causing a sudden cut out. my apologies.

Customer :

Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX say I’ll take a look tomorrow. This is the first time I’ve used justanswer, will I be able to continue with more questions for you tomorrow?

Mike :

Sorry yes- You can log out now and press the Accept if you are happy — and just come back to the post in yur account

Mike :

Press the Reply button then and I will get your reply straight in my Pending box and I will get back to you as soon as I see / get it..

Customer :

Hi Mike, would it be worth getting my local garage (we don’t have dealers, it’s the Isles of Scilly) to plug in their device which hopefully would pinpoint the area which I could then fix?

Hi. well it would yes. but it depends on how far / how much you want to do first. As you mentioned earlier, there are all the basic checks you can do — which wouldn’t take long — such as checking for a spark — and checking for fuel getting to the engine ( fuel pump failure ?) or no fuel being injected ( relay failure ). or crank sensor failure would be indicated if you have neither. So you can do the basics if you wish too — or just go straight for the diagnostics if you wish yes.
