    Default Puma 2.4 Volume Control Valve

    Does anyone know where I can get one of these valves locally besides the agents? It is the fuel metering valve on the injector pump. The agents want a ridiculous price for it. I have tried all the normal Land Rover parts suppliers (Dover, British, LP4A etc) but they don't stock it.

    Try Ford. Ask for the Suction Control Valve. Should be the same.

    From lots of reading, a lot of guys has swopped their VCV thinking its at fault.

    Also note, that you will need to do pilot learn after replacing.

    Like Jelo say, ask ford, part number 6C1Q-9358-AB.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I went to Action Ford this afternoon and they do not have that part number in their system. Have a similar one but it is for the 2.2 Ranger engine and the connection does not look the same. I may have to source it from the UK.

    Some feedback on this issue.I ordered the valve from Diesel Parts Direct in the UK which cost 70 GBP including shipping and took a chance with our postal system. It took 3 months but did finally get here. It is the original Denso valve but comes in a Nissan box with part number A6860-VM09A. It made a big difference to the running of the engine especially at lower throttle settings. The fuel rail pressure is much more stable than before and no hunting when idling. I will have to wait for colder weather to see if it has solved the problem of cutting out on cold start but think it will have. May be interesting to see if it is obtainable from Nissan locally and what it costs.

    Did this Resolve your issue?

    My 130 went into the power loss mode yesterday and this morning (like fuel starvation or no boost)
    Restart engine and issue gone... so thinking the VCV could be the culprit...or fuel pressure sensor..

    Yes it definitely solved the problem. Was worse in cold weather and no trouble this winter. No fault codes are registered but if you monitor the fuel rail pressure it is very erratic.

    cool, I setup my Ultra gauge to read the following:

    -fuel rail press
    -coolant temp
    -boost press
    -intake manifold press

    so will monitor the rail when idling etc.. thanks

    so yesterday afternoon, within 100m boost dropped and wont go over 5psi, restart, all good, 3km, same-repeat.
    Drive the clappers out of it, all good.

    The map pressure and rail pressure was pretty stable, only boost dropped.so either actuator or sensors.
    Cleaned the MAF and MAP (they weren't dirty as the truck had a major service in April)

    This morning I drove her little harder than usual, all seems fine and no issues for the 20km..

    Lets see

    Hi Alan,
    What symptoms did you have exactly? Did this sort it out eventually?
    Thanks

    Claude in colder weather it would run very roughly and often cut out for the first few minutes after starting. At idle I could also hear the revs hunting as the ECU tried to compensate for erratic fuel rail pressure. After installing the new unit there was an immediate improvement in low throttle behavior and no more cold start problems. It definitely was the source of my problems. It not complicated to replace, just very fiddly.

    Yep, I also had the exact same symptoms which started in winter a couple of years ago.

    Replacing the VCV sorted this out, but remember, you will have to do a pilot correction and a pump re-learn after you change the valve, so you will need a GAP tool or go to a dealer/workshop.

    I can also confirmed the above. Mine also started with erratic idling, sometimes hunting when coasting at a set speed and the few times I went above 3000rpm - a slight starvation. Odo at the time = 160k km. Bought the VCV unit at LP4A Pinetown (LR009837) Denso unit for R2400. After installing it, I took it to Land Rover for a pump re-learn exercise. All issues was immediately solved and the 2.4 as smooth as a Swiss clock.
