[Engine] 2003 1.9d lucas pump increasing fueling
#1
Morning all,

Well after much work (engine swap, decoding the pump etc etc) I finally got my wife's old berlingo back on the road with a nice shiny new mot.  but... something doesn't feel quite right.  It drives well but just feels a little underpowered at the top end.  After the amount of work done I know the timing, valves etc are all set fine.. only thing I can think of is that it needs a little more fueling...   I'm a landy guy and used to working on the 200/300tdi engine where you simply undo a lock nut, turn the screw and hey presto... (loads of smoke if you overdo it).

Just wondering what the procedure is for the lucas pump on the berlingo?

Cheers,
Jim

Hi Jim. Not trying to be a smart arse but on a 1.9 diesel if you overfill with oil even the slightest amount you will loose power ! second thing is have you had the injectors cleaned.   Just a thought.

2-300 tdi have a turbo

this makes a big odds.

the 1.9d does not and just pumping in more fuel does not lead to more power like it does on the 200tdi ( as a 200 TDI and 1.9D owner)
