Another one bites the dust!

NP 2004 Auto Exceed 363,000+k's

Most probable early warning signs over a couple of months period were:

1. very occasional engine misfire or stumble while stopped, in drive (auto) at idle and engine at normal operating temperature.

2. on four occasions over the same couple of months the Paj would inexplicably not start after a short run. The engine had been up to operating temp on all occurances then turned off for a short period, say 5 to 15 minutes, then restart failure. The engine would crank with gusto but not fire up.

After a brief period of contemplation, she usually and suddenly started like nothing was ever wrong. All except one occasion when I couldn't risk waiting, so had it flat-bedded home. The next morning it fired up first thing.

The catalyst for getting the pump changed was a stall as I released the accelerator coming into a roundabout. Some black smoke visible on several attempted restarts then after a 5 minute break it fired up and ran like nothing had happened. The difference this time was that it threw code 48 (GE Actuator).

I actually drove the Paj into a dealership several weeks later for the new pump install so it was still working when it was removed from the vehicle.

None of the above symptoms have occured since the new pump went in 2 weeks ago.

Thought i should weigh in.

I've had my NM 2002 3.2 since 2012.

It threw an engine code in 2015 I think on -7c morning. Code 47 - TPS/Timing Sensor in Diesel Pump. At about 220,000km.

I replaced the TPS but still got the code. Was told the pump was toast.

Its now 2019 and about 40,000km later and I'm still going on the same pump. Still throws the same code about every second drive. No other symptoms. Usual smokiness. Usual fuel consumption.

Go figure

Those are impressive figures!

A Gen 3 that's survived that long must have some stories to tell!

Mine just jumped over to the 301K - 400K Km bracket.
Value stem seals need replacement.
