Afternoon everyone. Its Canada Day but I am having difficulty celebrating this holiday. My 2006 CRD diesel Liberty (just under 100,00 miles) is completely lacking any power and easily smokes black continuously and detonates or pings at the touch of the accelerator. If driving on level ground, little smoke. Timing belt is taut and in good condition from what I can see of it. Timing belt slippage seems highly unlikely even though it is approaching it's replacement time.
This is what I have chronologically done to figure out my problem!

Removed mostly plugged catalytic converter for now.
Had it scoped at local dealership. No fault codes. Turbo boost actuator tested and injectors tested OK, but NOT pulled. Cylinder compression OK
Removed EGR, was not very dirty. Tested out OK. Re-installed. Replaced my MAP sensor. It had been coming on intermittently. Had cleaned it recently.
Pulled injectors and replaced all. Dealership did not pull them, claimed they were ok. Sometimes I think they are afraid to get dirty!!
The injectors were not OK. Could not rebuild. Got a core fee but still expensive.
My partner is ready to shoot something.
It has to be a timing issue does it not. But the belt looks good. Timing signals have to be off somewhere?? Everything else is good to go!! Cam Sensor??? Any codes or engine lite
for the cam sensor? What about the Crank Sensor.?
I dont know where to look at this point?!!

Let's start with something simple. Have you inspected your boost hoses? Are they original or have they been replaced?

Totaly agree with Wolverine here...check the boost hoses for tears,rips etc.
Also the hose from Airbox to Turbo tends to tear.

Cam sensor and crank sensor problems tend to grind you to a complete halt.

The 2006 LHD CRD has a known problem of the Fuel filter head mounting bracket can pinch the harness behind it and cause shorts to chassis but start with the hoses first. :wink:

Best thing is to place your questions in the "Liberty CRD Love the Torque" section further down where there are a lot of experts on the CRD to solve your the NOOB section first! :)
