    I have just changed out the harness and about to go for a test drive.

    Nope. Problem still there.

    maybe fuel filter is my next guess as it revs pretty smoothly and hasn't thrown a code since I replaced the injector.

    It brings me to the 2SO thing, isn't the problem on the remaining injectors? Just a question, as a FMEA it could be a possible?

    I doubt it's the 2SO. My dad has done over 100'000km on his v10 which is my engine doubled up.

    I just ran a boost log and boost keeps up with required boost.

    Perhaps the last tank of fuel was dodgy, killing one injector in the process and clogging the fuel filter.

    I'll change out the fuel filter as next step of fault finding.

    I work for Denel UAV division where we build UAVs (drones). Soldering cracks in environments where vibration is present i.e. engines, moving platforms etc. that is why crimping is best.
    Soldering is electrically a better connection but not mechanically.

    Sterkte, hoop jy kry dit uitgesort.

    Die toets sal jou help bepaal of dit fout is, maar daai vulstasie, indien hul so skelm is om parafien te verkoop, sal nie pa staan. Sal se week en half en 1000 km van hulle af is baie ver van hulle en daai sale. Jy kon dit op 10 ander plekke gekry het.

    Die diesel wat ek daar gekoop het is nogsteeds in die tenk.

    Ek het net tot caledon gery en die kar is to egeflatbed na my huis toe en hier staan hy nog.

    Die strokie sal wys ek het omtrent volgegooi. 76 liter.

    My versekering kan getuie gee oor die kar vervoer.

    How long after the last fill-up did the problems start?

    I would drain the tank and fill with fresh diesel. If it does not solve the problem, you have spare diesel.

    I agree with Reenen. Trying to pin it on the filling station after such a long time will be virtually impossible.

    100km after fillup.

    I'm just trying to figure out how I will drain the diesel.

    I think I will start with a fresh filter and fresh diesel and take it from there.

    Ek weet dit, jy weet dit, maar hulle gaan se bewys dit. Ten minste weet ons wie om te vermy in toekoms.

    Dit raak so erg dat party mens met n testkit bottel saamry wat n sample neem voor volgooi wat dadelik water en parafien uitwys.

    Elke vulstasie het kamera, so 100km van vulstasie met nog 'n vol tenk is goeie bewyse.....

    Iets lyk baie dogdy hier. Ek dink ook hulle tenke is vuil/vol water/parafien wat ook al. Toets sal dalk goed wees.

    Nou, vir my om bietjie duiwels advokaat te speel:
    Jy gaan hulle aanvat oor daar onsuiwerhede in die die diesel was, en gevolglik sit jy met skade. Gaan hulle kameras uitwys hoe jy self, voor of net na jy by hulle vol gemaak het, self n bottel met onbekende vloeistof in jou dieseltenk gooi, en dan hulle blameer vir contaminated diesel? (ek vat nie die 2SO aan nie, ek gebruik dit self).
    Ek dink net as ek in hulle skoene was, en wou wegkom sonder om uitgevang te word, sou ek gese het dit was jy self.

    Jip, kanse op sukses is baie skraal.

    ek het die 2SO by hulle gekoop. Die slip sal self so wys.

    ek weet ek sal nerens kom met die garage nie maar ek stuur die fotos en storie vir die media.

    ek is 100% agter jou, doen dit. Kans is skraal dat jy erens gaan kom met vulstasie. Maar prober hulle tog, miskien is hulle nie lus vir negatiewe publisiteit nie. As ek hulle was, sou ek alles probeer om blaam te skuif om te verhoed dat ek 'n klomp eie kry wat nie deur versekering gedek gaan word nie (indien hy parafien bygegooi het).

    Ek weet egter vir wie ek sal vermy in vervolg as ek in belleville moet diesel ingooi.
