Fuel starvation
[font=Arial]After several months of suffering fuel starvation intermittent power loss and limp mode in my Hiace camper van (1kzte 3ltr) I think fingers crossed we have finally won. I was using a blend of 80/10/10 when problems started it had run ok for some 10,000 miles, thinking it was a result of my wvo blend I reverted back to diesel no difference even after flushing the system. So I started at the tank, took it of and cleaned 24 years of gunk out the in tank strainer was filthy, I omitted it and fitted an inline one. Still the problem persisted I also fitted a FPHE and an electric lift pump before the normal fuel filter still no difference so on advice from jw2cv I bit the bullet
and pulled the filters in the IP pump not an easy job on a Hiace van THE PRIMARY ONE BEHIND THE TEMP SENSOR WAS 75% BLOCKED THE ONE UNDER THE FUEL METERING VALVE WAS 25% BLOCKED the other one under the return banjo is not a filter but a pressure relieve I cleaned any way . So far after 2 good test runs no more loss of power and limp mode. Thanks again to jw2cv the forum and the very informative vid on You Tube.

RE: Fuel starvation
My Hilux Surf / 4Runner has the same engine. Im dreading having to do this eventually! I recon mine has a bit blockage as theres no "go" higher up the revs. It also likes to hunt and stall once the glow plug timer clicks off on a cold start.

Glad you got yours sorted Smile

I ran a 13mm fuel hose from the tank on mine. Made a noticeable difference. Might be worth while on yours.

RE: Fuel starvation
I think I have jumped the gun its back where it was Limp mode and white smoke, air in return pipe runs perfect on tick over, will try a gravity feed direct IP tomorrow using diesel. Not looking forward to removing the IP for refurbish if seals have gone .
