Question What's Missing From This Engine?

We've been having problems getting our 02 plate Ducato running for a few years. We got a mechanic come in who has tried a few things to no avail.

On his last attempt, he took away a part from the engine - and now he's not responding to our calls - we'd just like to know what he took. So, another chap had a look and pointed me in the general location of the missing part.. so here are the photos... what's missing?

I think the chap said it plugs into the fuel pump (if I remember right) and the plug you can see should plug into whatever it is. There are two small bolts that attach whatever is missing.

It's an 02 1.9 jtd (I think) and Diesel.

Thanks for reading, guys.

Re: What's Missing From This Engine?

hi,
it will more than likely be the regulator if something is missing off the pump.
there shouid be a small hole where it slots in if so. 2x 10mm bolt holes iirc.

weird why this has been taken away vehicle shouid start up & run in limp mode with conector unplugged
if this is faulty no need to take regulator away to test.

was this vehicle checked for fault codes?

Re: What's Missing From This Engine?

sounds like fuel pressure regulator, has a 2 pin connector and held in by 2 small bolts with a gasket.

Often these are only available with a complete pump but if it is available separate costs around the 200 mark from memory.

Re: What's Missing From This Engine?

Thanks for the response, guys. I know one mechanic used his computer and got a fault code which didn't actually help or solve the problem.

Frustrating that the regulator is such an expensive part to replace when we really should already have one!

The problem we had was that the van just wouldn't start. I was tinkering around and discovered that it would start sometimes if you disconnected the battery, turned the key to position 1 (if I remember right) and then reconnected the battery and started it as normal.

Even though I explained this to the mechanic, they were convinced it was fuel pressure, or the rail, or the injectors (we had them cleaned and tested - they were fine)... I did ask if that were the case, how come I did get it started by fiddling with the battery? Surely these things would affect starting no matter the key position.

I can't even remember WHY I disconnected the battery and turned the key - I suspect it was an accident.

Obviously I need to get my hands on a fuel pressure regulator before I can do anything else... but any suggestions given what I've said would be great.

Thanks again, chaps.

If that's been exposed to the elements and you've got corrosion in there you nerd to replace the pump or the rust particles will ruin the whole system.
