Needle lift sensor
Before I give any info on my problem can someone tell me what sort of symptoms I would get on a dw8b engine when the needle lift sensor is not working?

Thanks again in advance everyone.
Probably this ... black smoke/loss of power/limp mode etc ......anywhere close ???

Well loss of power, no smoke but really loud knocking noise. Make scenes?
Ok I've replaced the injector #1 and plugged in the needle lift sensor but it still sounds like a bag of spanners inside a washing machine. Does it need to be reset first?

Also I found that the vacuum pipe is broke on the egr valve. Would that cause any problems?

Berlingo 54 plate
1.9d DW8 engine.

Quick edit: just started it up and it run really smooth for the first 5 seconds, then reverted back to a bag of spanners. Someone please help me :-(
Have a look in mk1 section Daz i have the same problem with my 1.9d its under Diesel misfire and where to start could be your advance solinoid on the pump.
Wrong type flywheel. No pickup. I've opened a new thread to try and get around this problem without having to remove the gearbox.
Have a look at this thread. Sounds very similar to the problem I had last year.
