where are all the experts when you need one?

i have an iveco daily 2.8 turbo that seems to have had an engine change at some point, parts are ordered from the number plate and i recently bought a cam belt that didn't fit..."that's not the engine that was fitted into your van" said the man.
the engine number says it's an 8140 but how do i find out what series or year it is. i need to order a load of parts as the head gasket blew this weekend.
also it looks like fiat iveco made a 2.5 8140 and ford iveco did a 2.8 8140 or am i just going nuts?

also....are the head bolt "stretch bolts"? as i'll need to replace them if they are.

thank...i hope :)

i have an iveco daily unijet 02 plate it has been running great up to the other day and would not start from cold so had mechanic out to try and solve problem.
he changed the fuel pump and filter but it is still the same. it will go with easystart then runs great all day.
one thing i did try was to take out the 80amp fuse and thermo relay and with easystart it still started and ideas ????

thanks jules i used my van today since saturday and did need the spray to start it but it stood for 4 hours this morning and it started first time i did about 5 miles then left it before i returned home again 4 hours and started first time but it was a warm day so i feel that the van is running almost up to scratch its just the morning when its left overnight. final arrangments have not been made for the computer all i have been told is that a slot has been reserved for me sat am so when i confirm arrangments i can ask for a leak off test how long does that take. many thanks ian b

leak off test should be about an hour or less, but these symptons are deffiently injectors sound, but other faults might be present

I have an iveco van which kept cutting out, so I took it to a main dealer,they put it on their testing equipment and said that an injector was causing the fault. So after parting with a conciderable amount of money, on the way home the injector light started to come on again. this time not quite so bad but the problem is still there.I phoned the garage and they said it must be the high pressure pump. so was their first diaganostics wrong? What is happening is your driving along quite nicely and you ease up on the excelorator and the injection light comes on,( flashing ) the van seems to lose all power and as the van slows down to about 20mph it suddenly comes back to life as if nothing was wrong.Sometimes it does not happen for quite along time and then you get another bout.help any one with any idea.

Hi i have a iveco 50c11 on a 2001 X plate it has started pressurizing and using coolant ,i pressurized the cooling system and found no external leaks but when i tried to start it it locked up so i thought the headgasket was the problem,i removed the head replaced the gasket built it backup only to find when i started it it was still bubblig in the header tank and using water although not as much ,i have removed the head again a week later and had it pressure tested but it is ok ,do you have any ideas or are there any common problems that i am missing ,thanks in advance Ian

mick in London, United Kingdom said: thanks for the reply ian. i took the head of today and did not find anything obvious.i have ordered a new head gasket,and will be fitting it monday, so the torque settings for the head bolts would be very handy.thanks mick

Hi Mick what was yours doing by the way ,mine had blown the head gasket originaly because i pressure tested it and found the coolant leaking into the cylinders and it hydraulic,ed when i started it ,but like i said i think i was hasty in removeing the head the second time because i think now it was just air locked and is now fine ,...sorry for going on a bit the torque settings are 60nm and 60nm again then 180degrees ,i have autodata on cd so if you want the torque sequence let me know and i can e mail it to you ,Cheers Ian

hi, i take it this vehicle has a rotary fuel pump and not common rail, we use to have this quite alot, what happens is, the fuel pump is cooled by the diesel, as the level gets low, the fuel temperature increases, so the pump gets hot, the pump has the immobiliser built on top of it which then plays up and that is why the key light flashes, next time it does it, poor a lot of water over the pump and see if it starts, im affraid it could be an exspensive repair unless you can get an electrician to bypass the immobiliser,

I posted the fact that I could not start my 2004 Iveco daily the day after having the head fingers replaced as it would turn over but not start. 1st) went into Cardiff Iveco for Diagnosis which said pressure rail fuel sensor (charged me for 2hrs labour for diagnosis)put a new one on and no change... 2nd)another diagnosis (charged for 1 hour labour) said the fuel pump, changed it and still no change.... I then gave up on cardiff and took it to Merthyr Tydfil Iveco who quickly found that the problem was a pin in the plug that connects to the ECU.. IT NOW RUNS FINE....

I work for Iveco usually you will find that the contacts in the injector plugs need closing up or a new loom fitted, if thats any help to you!

Hey,

I'm currently working on a new shape Euro 4 daily that seams to have a comprehensive fault,
I have been working on it for the last 2 weeks and 6 other fitters before me.
it was recovered in as another garage had done a engine rebuild a while back, up on further investigation of the non start we found that the timing was out and that the crank and cam gear positioning pins were sheered off, so new crank, pulleys, tappets were fitted. The head has been sent off and checked twice, as the first time No# 4 & 3 valves were replaced but not lapped in correctly, pistons were removed and the rings replaced. I then checked The piston protrusion and all were within tolerance. upon rebuilding and running we find that it runs rough, and there's a cuffing sound from the inlet there for i carried out a compression test with E.A.S.Y and manually but both state compression is low on number 3 and very low on 4, I then carried out a cylinder leakage test which showed no signs of excessive air escaping

has any one had any faults like this before and is any one able to help please

Hi guys,

Wondering if anyone can help!!!! PLEASE!!! Had the timing belt, pulley and tensioner replaced on our Iveco daily turbo diesel 2005 - 6,000km later, the bolts on pulley snaped - and timing belt went flying!! Our mechanic (who ofcourse will not cover it under warranty) can not find any info on cylinder head tension! Seems like most of you had already done the job a few times...... can you please supply me with the info - I really need the van back on the road (only so it can brake down again!) as rental charges are killing us!!! THANK YOU:=)AND yes what ever you do, DO NOT BUY an iveco I reckon this piece of S#*T spends more time in repair than on the road!!!

hi the speedo is electronic no cable, you need to get under the vehiile and remove the speed sensor with a spanner (27 or 30 mm) if it has filings around it, clean of and refit as they work like an elctro magnet.

-1st step: pre-tightening with torque wrench to torque of
60 ± 5 Nm;
- 2nd step: return to torque of 60 ± 5 Nm;
- 3rd step: closing with 180° ± 10° angle.

It is essential to keep the gasket sealed in its package
until just before assembly.

ok the ol is just cold in the gearbox so it is thicker, perhaps change the oil, and there are little rubber boots on the handbrake cables that perish and let water in, when its cold the water freezes and doesnt allow the cable to realease, try some new cables

THE van had new handbrakes cales put on 6000 miles ago,the person who had the van before me said to spray some wd40 on the linkage at the rear brakes.Also do you think that changing the oil wil rectify the prblemwith the gearbox.Has there been any other prblems with the iveco gearbox?

Just one more question. I have problems with the windscreen wiper control stalk and the light/indicator stalk. Sometimes they work fine other times you have to wiggle them up and down before they work. Is this a common problem on Ivecos? Should I replace them or is it something else?

Hi, you need to adjust the cable to have about 1 or 2mm of free play when the engine is hot.
When the engine is cold the cable is short, thereby adjusting the pump, when hot the cable is longer and should have a little free play.

To get it started try manually moving the lever slightly, it only moves a few mmm anyway.

Also check heater plugs are working, it needs at least 2/3 when cold.
