    Series 80 stalling out at corners

    My Ď96 4.2L TD auto cruiser has started stalling out on slow corners

    The motor at idle seems to be revving higher than previous

    Transmission serviced and tuned about 8 months ago (320k km)

    Motor regularly serviced

    The vacuum advance (turbo?) line that runs over top of motor had a leaking MAP(?) sensor which was cause of low power and acceleration 12 months ago. Just shutting it off sorted that!

    Iím lost! Any clues from the gurus???

    i have had similar issues with our triton. in the end it was oil in the intercooler as someone had overfilled the engine oil. i washed it out in turps, drained it then washed it out in supercheap degreaser. let it dry but let it have a blow thru before connecting it back to the inlet manifold. prior to that i degunked the inlet manifold, changed perished vacuum hoses and cleaned the egr valve. (which is now turned off electronically)
    we used to have an x-trail (we called it the x fail) which revved too high on idle, that was caused by a minute crack in the exhaust manifold next to a sensor. fresh air was being sucked in between pulses so the engine control put more fuel in to compensate.

    Have you replaced the fuel filter?
    I had something similar in my Patrol, and a new fuel filter fixed it right up.

    Is the motor dieing out or is the auto not changing down and causing to stall?

    First of more details on this maps sensor block off? Also does the turbo light on dash light up under boost
    Second does it still have the 2 water pipes that go to the side of the injection pump?

    The maps sensor is absent and the line it was on is blocked off on each side by a pk screw. The turbo started functioning properly since (about twelve months ago)

    No turbo light except when motor stalls out

    Iíll check re water pipes but pretty sure yes

    On relooking I suspect the MAPSsensor is still in place (a piece with electrical connections), but the small filter/plastic valve beside it was removed. Thereís a blocked off pipe anyways.

    Canít see any water pipes leading into the injector pump but Iím not really sure what Iím looking at there I admit.

    Can email pics.

    is this a common rail engine or old school diesel, as if its common rail i cant see how it would work with no map sensor as engine management wouldnt know how much fuel to inject

    Old school

    I think the sensor is still there. The bit that was removed was like a miniature fuel filter. Removed cos it was cracked and not allowing vacuum to cause the turbo to spin up
