If it is the F1 pump, then the car will start when the pressure is restored. There is no sensor on the pump, so the car shuts down only because there is no pressure to move the clutch, not because the car recognizes the pump is bad. So, when the pump decides to work, then the pressure should build (assuming the pump primes for about 5 seconds) to exceed 40 bar and the car should start.
The scan tool will show the internal pressure, the pump trigger (on or off) and any codes stored relating to low pressure signals. I'm hoping the techs have actually looked at this data and not diagnosed your car over an internet search. If my calculations are correct, they're probably reading this post right now.
Exactly... honestly I don't think it's the pump but I could be wrong. When the door opens I do hear it prime for about 5 seconds. I thought that mean it works....I'm about to call him now and ask some serious questions.
Hey Damien, any updates? It's been 7 days since your last post.
Good luck and I hope it was something truly simple like a new battery.
Many of these units were sold with a battery tender when new I believe, so the manufacture knew they could indeed be electrically impaired so to speak.
The mechanic called me and said it's the f1 pump. I'm a little confused because I was told if you open the door you could hear it prime. And I can hear mines prime so I thought that meant it works....I really hope he's right because I do not wanna pay to fix something that's not the problem
I am finding with these cars that because of the complexity and reliance on inbuilt systems, you really need to be going to a well known marque specialist, as many mechanics try to guess around the problem, and at your expense, randomly changing parts in the hope it cures the issue without properly researching the set up of the car if they have not worked on them extensively.
I would not risk the cost of changing the pump only to find it does not cure the issue. You have been without the car now for some time, get it shipped to the nearest trusted specialist, even if they are some distance away, would be my recommendation as you will still be going through all this for the next few months otherwise.
In my case as ours a project car we have the time to research and dabble, as I enjoy learning about the systems and how to resolve them, if the car was my daily I would be biting the bullet and paying for someone I feel real trust in, to fix it instead.
I know Larini, tubi etc make killer exhaust but has anyone tried something for a deeper V8 growl ? Like MagnaFlow or something along those lines maybe with a Larini X pipe. Dont get me wrong I love the sound of the higher revving sound but grew up on American V8 muscle LOL
First, thanks for Josh at ECS for helping me with the parts. He saved my bacon a bit by getting a new "water shield." There is no way to get that thing off without ripping it, thin foam with SUPER sticky stuff holding it to the car.
I have a 2007 Quattroporte Executive GT with the full automatic transmission. I'm trying to upgrade to a newer CPO version, but I'm having a hard time trying to find a 2015 or newer that has the equipment that I have. My car has:
Wood steering wheel
Rear Heat / AC
Rear window shades
Got a new to me 09 QP GTS delivered yesterday. Up in Wisconsin and it has been pretty cold the last couple days. The car had been sitting for a while and needed to be jumped to get on the carriers truck. When he got to my house, the car wouldn't start off a jump pack or being jumped from...
Im looking for advice on size and a decent set of wheel spacers for our 2012 Maserat QP GTS with 20 inch rims. Really have no idea what size for front and rear. Also do not want to go broke buying a set. Does anybody have suggestions on what they use and a brand name or where to get them. Thank...
