My 1998 F355 catch on fire because of an electrical fire in the engine compartment. The disassembly revealed that the electrical fire took place on the main engine injection cable that is coming from the Motronic unit. My mechanic told me that the cable got short-cut due to an excessive wearing of the cable isolation at the place it's touching the thermostatic valve. He says that the cable rubbed on that piece of metal. This leads to the short cut between the naked cable's wires and the body of the thermostatic vale. I'm very surprise to that the electrical short cut could be due to an excessive rubbing of such important cable that has several sheath mechanical protection around it. So does an excessive friction of the electrical cable really make sense on a 1998 F355 with only 56'000km on the speedometer?!? There is also a bracket just at the front of the engine, where the cable enters into the V of the engine. The Part Manual tends to show that the bracket is located just before the cable pass nearby the thermostatic valve. Is this bracket not supposed to avoid such physical contact between the cable and the thermostatic valve?? Could it not be the heat of the thermostatic valve that melted the cable that then cause the electrical short cut of the naked wires? My case seams to be very special, as I could not find such similar fire problem on the forum. The F355 that catch fire had fuel leakage on the pipes going to the fuel divider. Any thoughts ?? Many thanks in advance for your usual helpful guidance. Christophe.
