More 200TDI Stalling Stories

Previously, I got some advice and good leads from other members of this site when I was attempting to determine the cause of intermitent stalling of my 200TDI. It originally emerged only upon start up and progressed to a point where it occured once at speed under load. The common consencus was that I was drawing air into the system. I cleaned out the sedimentator and fuel filter. I tried to prime the pump, but the stepper didn't seem to gain any pressure(leading me to question my fuel pump... I ordered a new one). Anyway, I made an appointment with my mechanic. Of course, there was no stalling when I brought it to him and it has been great the whole rest of that day... In other words, the problem is intermitent. My mechanic suggested that the problem might be the FUEL SHUTOFF SOLENOID. Does anyone know about the solenoid(I don't even know what it is, did'nt know the 200tdi had one, don't know where is it located...any advice on replacement and where to get one)? Thanks in advance for the help.

This happened to me. The wire broke off within the insulation and I had a couple of cases of the engine missing, which I thought was weird for a diesel. Latter that day ended up stranded by the side of the road for 3 hours until I figured it out. The stop solenoid in easy to find, just follow the single wire you see going to the pump. It's just a simple electromagnet plunger which opens when the key is in the on and start position allowing fuel to flow and closes when you turn the key to off. It just screws into the pump.

Any diesel injection place will be able to get you one.

You knew the lift pump plunger has to be on a cam lobe for the primer lever to work right ?
When you try the primer lever and there is no resistance you have to bump the engine over until the cam lobe depresses the plunger/actuator lever for the pump. Then the finger lever will work. If you have that resistance and still no flow then the lift pump is toast.

On this same subject, has anyone sourced a pull cable stop to replace the shut off solenoid? 1 less wire.

Doug-
Thanks for the advice... Yes, I advanced the starter several times to get the cam in the right position to no avail. Never got pressure on the stepper. Nonetheless, I ran the truck a long time, so I believe that any air in the system would have passed through the engine. I had the experience of advancing the starter several times to get the cam in the correct position to make it possible to install the fuel pump. I appreciate the input.
