DTC P0216: FUEL INJECTION PUMP TIMING FAILURE (DIESEL)
NOTE:DTC P0216: FUEL INJECTION PUMP TIMING FAILURE is monitored with ignition on. DTC may be stored in Engine Control Module (ECM) when ECM senses engine speed more than 300 RPM, and fuel command and timing control within predetermined parameters. Possible causes are: defective fuel injection pump, fuel injection pump gear not properly aligned, restricted fuel filter, restricted transfer pump inlet line.

Turn ignition on, with engine off. Using scan tool, read DTCs. If DTC SPECIFIC GOOD TRIP COUNTER displayed count is "0", go to step 3). If DTC SPECIFIC GOOD TRIP COUNTER count is not "0", go to next step.

Ensure engine is on, with engine off. Using scan tool, read and record FREEZE FRAME data. Road test vehicle under conditions in FREEZE FRAME data. Using scan tool, read DTCs. If DTC SPECIFIC GOOD TRIP COUNTER displayed count changes to "0", go to next step. If DTC SPECIFIC GOOD TRIP COUNTER displayed count does not change to "0", test is complete.

Using scan tool, read CALIBRATION DTCs. If DTC P0336: CRANKSHAFT POSITION SENSOR SIGNAL, DTC P1287: FUEL INJ PUMP CONTROL SUPPLY VOLTAGE TOO LOW) or DTC P1690: FUEL INJECTION PUMP CKP SENSOR DOES NOT AGREE WITH ECM CKP is present, perform DTC P0336: CRANKSHAFT POSITION SENSOR SIGNAL, DTC P1287: FUEL INJ PUMP CONTROL SUPPLY VOLTAGE TOO LOW, or DTC P1690: FUEL INJECTION PUMP CKP SENSOR DOES NOT AGREE WITH ECM CKP test. If DTCs are not present, go to next step.

Ensure ignition is off. Check fuel injection pump gear for proper alignment. Align fuel injection pump gear as necessary. Perform TEST VER-5A (DIESEL). If fuel injection pump gear is properly aligned, go to next step.

Ensure ignition is off. Install fuel pressure Test Fittings (AVU1-2) to fuel filter/water separator inlet and outlet ports.
Install Fuel Pressure Gauge (6828) to test fitting at inlet port. Start engine and allow it to idle. Record fuel pressure. Fuel pressure should be 10 psi (.69 kg/cm2 ) or more. Turn ignition off. Remove fuel pressure gauge from inlet port, and install on outlet port. Start engine and allow it to idle. Record fuel pressure. Fuel pressure at outlet port should be no more than 5 psi (.35 kg/cm2 ) less than inlet port pressure. If fuel pressure is not as specified, replace fuel filter/water separator.
If fuel pressure is as specified, go to next step.

Turn ignition off. Check fuel transfer pump fuel supply line for restrictions.
Repair restriction in fuel supply line as necessary. Perform TEST VER-5A (DIESEL). If no restrictions exist, go to next step.
At this time, fuel injection pump is assumed to be defective. Replace fuel injection pump
good luck
