P0216

7 posts in this topic

Ok guys here it is I got this code after I plug the OBD II scanner tool on this truck I just bought. The previous owner told me about this problem , when the truck is running at speeds of 60 o 70 the pedal wont respond and the speed goes down and I have to lower the speed by braking or putting it on neutral and then it will respond. What do you guys think?

The P0216 means the injection pump can't advance properly. Unfortunately, there are no user serviceable parts in the VP44 so it will have to be replaced to solve the "dead pedal" problem. Eventually, it will die all together and wont restart. I ran with a P0216 for nearly a year, with intermittent dead pedal and hard starting, before the injection pump finally quit completely.

He has an Airdog 100 so I figured he had good pressure. But, while we are there when was it put on?

I don't have an airdog on this one this is the new truck I just bought 2001 5 spd 4x4 with 259,000 miles .I am planning in putting a temporary fuel pressure tomorrow and was wanting to see if I could tap it on top of the fuel filter is that possible in this year? Is there any thing I can do to the pump before it dies 2 cycle oil anything ?
