Hi luke, we are facing a strange problem on exactly the same ford transit. Di van as the one you were working on. Without any type of warning the engine abruptly closed down on us with white fumes, impossible to restart. We suspected a fuel problem because of dirty fuel. Emptied the tank, cleaned all, changed filter. Everything worked fine for a few days, then boom again same problem. We then tought maybe the fuel gage was giving wrong info, so we refilled the tank, but only half the volume would enter, so it wasn t empty, but surprise surprise, after a while, the van accepted to crank up and again ran for a few days before giving up again in exactly the same way! ! ! ! We dismounted the egr valve, found out it had already been short cut by the previous owner plate between flange of exhaust connector andvalve body we cleaned it up anyway, but considering it was shorted, we dont believe this was the cause of our trouble. Do you know if there is any strainer somewhere in this bosch pump, or any other sensitive point where aghost could be hidden in the fuel system? ? ? ? ? ? Thanks a million for your time.
Hi mate, am currently in the process of buying a new diesel pump bosch i been told that new are already plug and play so no coding needed. On my ford transit. Mk duratorque, i have removed the top manifold on to get access to the pump it was a pig to do that last bolt. Hahahahaha. Anyways i took the diesel pump off but didn t use the yellow locking ring, just to reassure top cams are pos to o clock chains i have marked before i took it off bottom crank at o clock and on the diesel sprocket a small indicator points to o clock, any top tips for when installing the new pump and do i need the yellow locking toolkit cheer mate. Oh the crank is locked off around the back of the engine. Thanks again
My dad payed the shop euros for a new fuel pump with install ofcourse. Is that a normal price you think?
