    ZD30 Issue

    Hi Brains Trust!,

    My 2001 ZD30 has an issue and I need some guidance...

    This scenario usually only occurs at a traffic light stop. At idle it will cough, pump out a single puff of black diesel smoke and the rev counter goes to zero (engine returns to normal idle instantaneously). If it's in drive while this occurs it leaps forward momentarily as if the throttle has been advanced. The rev counter remains at zero until I rev it. The event triggers an amber engine warning light that extinguishes after a shut down. I don't have access to a diagnostic tool to plug into the Patrol...does it sound like an intermittent sensor issue?

    Thanks in advance for any guidance :-)

    There use to be a few real smart guys on here, but I think there gone now days. Got an issue myself, but no ones forthcoming with any ideas.
    Good luck mate.

    I think its best to get a diagnostic check mate. Guessing with these motors, is just, guessing. It could be a dodgy fuel filter, fuel filter head, air in the fuel system, shitty injectors etc etc.
    What have you done to try to resolve this issue?

    Hey MB, no good me offering ideas, nothing is as it seems with the ZD. I gave the 3.0 to the Mrs when move to the NT, had myself a 42td. Don’t get me wrong, I meant know disrespect to any one, but there was a couple of fellas who seemed to know more than us back yarders. Like the bloke who helped me with my 4.2 nats issue. This poor fella is suffering, and it could be any number of issues. Actually, mudski below rings a bell.
    Regards Mick.
