Reference: 45 Diesel Fuel Pump Faulty

My vehicle still runs (just); however driving is hard when the 45 only picks up from 2500 to 4000 RPM!

*The fuel pump is not operating fully/properly*

Does anyone know the solution without buying an expensive new pump?

I notice those that sell pumps also require your old one as a deposit (obviously they are repairable!!!)

Any help gratefully appreciated

i think some places recondition your fuel pump if its faulty. Just a quick question, how do you know its fuel pump? has it already been diagnosed?

IIRC a brand new pump is fairly expensive

Yes, diagnosed as fuel pump.

Outrageous price to repair is £850 plus VAT

Does anyone know the price to re-condition?

Have unplugged the maf sensor?

If not, do it and see if it makes any difference.

Poor performance below 2000 -2500 is often down to this and a Mafam can usualy cure it completely and is a lot cheaper!

I had a similar problem with my 45, lack of power & wouldn't rev past 4000rpm - I traced it to the pulse width modulation signal not altering the injection timing solonoid in the pump - ended up having a new ECU circuit board fitted & calibrated at a Bosch service agent costing £632 inc vat - this was cheaper than an exchange pump.
