Went to turn off the 04 diesel turbo mitsubishi canter today and it still chugged a couple of times. turned it off and on a couple of times and still did it until it just keeped on running till i had to stall it. Been on corro roads for a couple of days me think some thing to do with fuel pump but the cook thinks i think to much and dont know enough. Any ideas would be great as im away from a mechanic THANK YOU in advance. Tony

Not familiar with the canter motor. Has it got the old inline pump or the centrifugal pump.
The inlines usually had a solonoid pushing a rod to activate the stop lever.
The centrifugal pump usually has a small electronic solonoid screwed in that cuts the fuel. I would suggest that the solonoid is sticking or the relay is or you have a dodgy connection in the cicuit after the rough ride.
It should be an easy and cheap enough fix and nothing to worry about.
The old pumps you could just pop the rod off and move the lever to the stop position when the F#@ked up

I can guarantee what I am about to suggest is not your issue but I cant think of a better thread to bring it up. On worn diesels engine oil can leak into the cylinders and keep a diesel running. Idling into a tree is the best way to switch a worn diesel off.

Its only done 26000 ks if its worn after that many ks it deserves to be driven into a tree

At a guess I would say the same thing, check your oil level and see if it going down.

Might be the turbo!

I thought the days were gone where you could run a Diesel without any electrical power......good to see some still around!

Not exactly related, but you need electrical power to start these engines (starter, glowplug & injection pump lever) & then you need electrical power to stop them (pull injection punp lever to off)...but you don't need electrical power for it to run! Those were the days....

BTW, a TD Prado (1kzte) with engine computer will run at least 150km with a buggered alternator...a petrol Prado only about 5kms!
