Q. Is the check result normal?

Go to Step 2.
Replace the battery.

STEP 2. M.U.T.-III diagnosis code


Q. Is diagnosis code set?

Inspection chart for diagnosis code (Refer to ).
Go to Step 3.

STEP 3. M.U.T.-III actuator test



  • Item 9: Fuel pump
OK: Operating sound of fuel pump can be heard

Q. Is the check result normal?

Go to Step 4.
Check Inspection Procedure - fuel pump system (Refer to ).

STEP 4. Check timing chain for breakage.

Check code No. P0267: No. 3 injector circuit low input (Refer to ). Check code No. P0268: No. 3 injector circuit high input (Refer to ). Check code No. P0270: No. 4 injector circuit low input (Refer to ). Check code No. P0271: No. 4 injector circuit high input (Refer to ).

STEP 10. Fuel pressure measurement.



  • Fuel pressure test (Refer to ).

Q. Is the check result normal?

Go to Step 11.
Repair.

STEP 11. Replace the engine-ECU.



  • After replacing the engine-ECU re-check the trouble symptoms.

Q. Does the trouble symptom persist?

Check for foreign matters (water, diesel fuel, etc.) in fuel and replace if necessary.
