Re: Puma Defender

Sounds like the Defender went into to limp mode . A not uncommon problem with the Puma . There is temp sensor that protects the head (similar in use to an EGT gauge) from over temperature. There is apparently not a simple solution. But stage one is to ensure that you have max airflow into the engine...

Re: Defender 130 for sale

So what is the replacement Dave?
I have decided to scale back on hard core outings , for which the 130 has been magnificent . A nice FL 2 would suit very well...but not decided or committed yet. There comes a time when one has to accept that life must slow down a bit.

Regards

Re: 160 CAN error fault active?

What generic computer ? Once again be very careful of a "injector" diagnosis . There is no computer in the world that can accurately determine that the injectors are defective. As an example , a low fuel flow due to a defective fuel pump or blocked fuel filter will cause erratic injector performance...

Re: 160 CAN error fault active?

Best with injectors ? Be wary about blaming the injectors for your problem .
Kots of money to be made and lost by blaming injectors .

You dont replace injector harness if you havent found a problem with it .

Where did you get a 160 error ?

Re: Spluttering at low revs
