Hi I have a 2003 rover 45 TD with the following issue. Last week whilst driving I felt a misfire and loss of power almost like fuel starvation. Managed to get to Car park then found the car would idle ok but as soon as tried to rev it dies out again. Mechanic put diagnostic test on and got P1355 error code.
What is this likely to be as know one seems to know how to resolve problem. Any help appreciated

Is the fuel priming bulb getting sucked flat? If so a blockage in/near the tank. If you've not changed the fuel filter recently that is worth a try too.

Earth faults can trigger any host of fault codes.

Mechanic says earth straps are ok. The mystery continues maybe it's time for a change but don't want too.
Just to reiterate
Fault code 01355
Engine starts and idles 0k
After a minutes driving jerks a d faultlers as though starved of diesel then cuts out.
Also the starter motor has suddenly started playing up and just clicks but not all the time. Battery new terminals all good clean and tight

Any help appreciated

even though earth strap looks good, it may be giving high resistance under high load.

try a jump lead from gearbox to battery negative

Have reached another dead end will try a second hand diesel pump on Monday then I'm afraid it looks like good bye Rover.
It's a shame because it was a nice drive.

Will let you know how pump goes

Thanks all

Is the priming bulb being sucked flat when the fuel starvation happens? It isn't unknown for the tank pickup to get blocked up if veggie has been used or water has got into the tank.

There is no ignition coil in a diesel

It could be the pump ECU going faulty which isn't unknown but then they usually stop dead and don't go again. If pouring a bottle of cold water over the top of the pump when the fault happens cures the problem then it is an ECU fault inside the pump and although they can be repaired usually swapping for a known good one is the cheapest fix.

Thanks everybody for suggestions. Mine is a 2003 rover 45 td can anybody tell me if the diesel pump is the same on any other models e.g. freelander mgs or other's. My problem is is that I live in tenerife and scrappy parts are rare for this model and this is last ditched attempt at saving from crushing.


Thanks Steve

Yes the zs and zr and rover 25 td pumps are the same. Freelancer is not as they changed to the rover 75 BMW diesel.

Hang in there it'll be something or nowt, the fuel pumps in the engine bay were known to give up the ghost, have you checked the injector wire to first injector? I have a mafgless remap so that there's never any issues to have to sort, like said the main earth strap to the slam panel is usually knackered something you can check yourself but if the garage has checked it im sure its not been overlooked.
