1997 Hiace SC. Starts right up, idles fine, revs right up in Park or Neutral, nothing above an idle in reverse or drive. Any clues?

This really sucks! The internet is so lousy here in the Philippines, that it could take all day just to post a message. I really need some answers here. I need this van! It ran fine last year, but after that lousy butcher touched it, I think he sabotaged it figuring on another foreigner sucker will fill his pockets?? I replaced the ECU, and it starts and runs fine. Is there a difference between an ECU for a standard tranny and automatic? I'm at my whits end.................please reply!

Fuel starvation, either a blockage or an air leak.
Try a direct feed of clean fuel to the fuel pump to confirm then work your way back down the fuel line.

Thank you for your answer Clive! Where's the pump? Is it in the tank, electric? I get lots of fuel if I disconnect the out line from the filter housing and press the plunger. I also had lots of fuel leaking out of 3 of my injector lines, because someone loosened the nuts at their unions. Diesel all over the place!!! Tightened them, unfortunately same problem.

The pump is where the injector lines come from, there is no fuel pump in the tank.

Fuel from the primer sounds good, fuel at the injectors also good, same with the 4th one?

Back to air leak or fuel line blockage between the filter and the pump, yep there it is.

Well I replaced the fuel line between the filter and the pump, and put new hose clamps on it. Started it up and it seemed to work ok in reverse and drive. Took it for a drive and it seemed fine, a bit sluggish, but at least it would accelerate. Unfortunately when I went to return home, it started doing it again, so there it sits on the side of the road. My nephew came out with some tools and extra hose clamps, so I doubled up on the clamps, but we ran the battery down trying to start it. We brought the battery home to charge, so will try again later.

Recharged battery started right up, drove it home no problems. Started doing the same thing the minute we tried to back it in to my garage. My bro-inlaw tells me the butcher mechanic switched the positive and ngative wires going to the injectors??? He said it doesn't make any difference which way they are?? Any comments on that?

Today I replaced the line from the steel tank line to the filter, the filter, and the line to the pump, all with double clamps. Same result, this is getting really frustrating! All the steel lines look good, no rust anywhere. Why would it work sometimes, and then not work?

I would help if I could... sorry but I know less than you do!

Ask me about leisure electrics or batteries and I might be able to help.... Same with tyres!

Good luck and please tell us what was done to fix it when you get it sorted!

Cheers,
W.

Try a direct feed from a fuel can to the pump, them work you way back wards to the tank.

Well that solved that problem. There isn't anywhere here in the boonies of Central Luzon to get the things you would need to make a simple fuel feed can. I ended up at my nephews place and he found a 5/16" line adapter, but unfortunately it had a 18mm x 1.5 thread on it (spark plug)? Luckily it was close enough to the size of a 3/8npt thread, that I was able to cut it to that.I then took a plastic 1 litre sprite bottle and drilled and tapped a 3/8npt hole in the bottom, screwed in the new fitting and voila! a fuel can. This was then attached to the pump, with a dump line attached to the filter, so I could fuel the can. Started her up and guess what??.................No bloody change!
Now I know it's not a fuel feed problem, so what now?

[quote="Clive"]ECU ?[/quote

Obviously it's probably the used ECU. Thanx for all the replies. My nephew is an electronics wizard, he repairs TV's,Stereos, anything like that. Could somebody tell me where to start looking in the ECU for the acceleration control?

ECU repaired finally. Had to wait on a transistor, that couldn't be found here, had to get it from China! While we were waiting another mechanic that my bro in-law knew came and had a go at it. He said that the head gasket had been replaced recently, so maybe the mechanic didn't put the timing belt on correctly and it was out of time by 1 tooth. He climbed right in and stripped the front off it and lined everything up correctly, test ran it many times to fine tune it, it seemed to rev no problem and sounded good. Put it all back together and unfortunately same problem!
Well I put the rebuilt ECU in today, turned the key and it fired right up. It wouldn't even start with this ECU before. Put it in drive and varoom off we go!!! Hallelujah!
Unfortunately, now it's got this god awful knocking sound when you rev it up. Could the timing be too far advanced now? How do you reset that?? I've got one week left here in the Philippines, this van has ruined most of the plans we had to do while we were here.

Finally fixed it. I switched the 2 wires going to the top of the pump and when I started it, the knocking sound was gone. I think the last mechanic that worked on it was pulling a scam to get a callback to squeeze a few more pesos out of me. We drove it around today with no problems. Tomorrow it's going to be engine and rad flush, new coolant with 50/50 anti-freeze, water. They mostly only use straight water here..Yuck! Where is the block drain plug?

I just pop the lower radiator hose off and remove the thermostat for a flush.
Should not use straight water as this does not have any lubricant in it and promotes metal corrosion.
