There is fuel in the tank, but there is no start. The W213

Greetings, everyone.

I have encountered another issue and would want to provide a comprehensive explanation in this topic. Pertaining to the E220 W213 Diesel model.

The current issue is to the gasoline tank and pump. The display indicates the presence of three bars, indicating the level of diesel fuel in the tank. Nevertheless, the automobile is unable to initiate the ignition process.

The Xentry numbers indicate that the RIGHT tank has a low fuel level, while the left tank has 22 litres of petrol. Attached is a screenshot with the corresponding values.

What is the resolution to this issue and how can it be rectified?

It seems that there may be a malfunction with the gasoline pump or the power supply to the pump. I suggest examining the connections and determining whether power is successfully reaching the pump. whether power is not reaching the pump, it may be necessary to replace it.

The pump has not had a failure as it is functioning properly.

The system works well, however, it only utilises gasoline from the right side of the tank, leaving the petrol on the left side untouched. Observe the picture.

What is the level of complexity involved in replacing the pump?

I have not seen this issue on the 213 model, but on the prior 211 and 212 versions, the pumps located in the tank were responsible for venturiing the gasoline over the saddle. If one of the pumps malfunctioned, the venturi also failed, causing the car to exhaust its fuel supply since it was no longer able to extract gasoline from the tank.

Have you conducted a direct measurement of the current fuel pressure originating from the tank? For instance, if the minimum required delivery pressure is 3.8 bar, the pump may continue to operate, but if it only produces a pressure of 1.5 bar, it will not be able to provide the appropriate pressure.

Delivery pressure refers to the condition where the system will initiate as long as the high pressure side is functioning.

Is it correct to believe that the engine is turning over but not igniting?

Have you physically removed the pump/senders to verify the presence of fuel? Given that there are 26 litres of fuel in the tank, I would anticipate the gauge to display a greater number of bars than only 3. It is possible that you have an inaccurate fuel gauge reading, and the vehicle is simply running out of petrol.

During the era of the OM 646, we had a problem related to the collapse of the venturi in the fuel tank, which prevented the proper swirling of gasoline from the left side to the right side of the saddle. The issue occurred inside the senders.

Negative, I did not extract the pump. To uninstall the pump, one must remove the tank. Uncertain about the level of difficulty involved.

It ceases to function after travelling around 430-450 miles. This refers to driving inside urban areas.

Typically, I don't wait for the gasoline level to drop too low. Instead, I refill the tank when it is at about half or when it is 5-6 bars below full. Over a distance of 300-350 miles, I typically use around 33-36 litres of diesel fuel. I assume the tank has a capacity of 60 litres.

The tank has 26 litres, positioned on the left side. The right side becomes completely vacant. There is a problem with the gasoline not transferring from the left side to the right side.

I am eager to extract the tank in order to investigate the potential issue, but I am uncertain about the level of difficulty involved in doing so on the w213 model.

Have you already extracted the pumps? It is not necessary to remove the tank in order to do so. You elevate the backrest of the bench seats and get entry via the service covers.

The pump units themselves are responsible for transferring the gasoline over the saddle. There seems to be a malfunction with these.

Does this also apply to the w213 model? Is the model you are referring to the 2017 e220d?

If such is the case, I will attempt to eliminate it over the next weekend and assess its accessibility.

Are there any photos available, if possible?

I do not own any photographs that might be of assistance.

If you lack confidence in your ability to interpret anything, it is advisable to refrain from further examination and instead seek the assistance of a competent specialist.
