fuel pump

  1. Stranded on road. Van cut out when driving.

    Engine & Gearbox
    Any help appreciated. T4 1.9TD 2001 just cut out doing 20mph. Lights are all on I think on the dash. I suspect it's the fuel pump or the battery. Hoping it's the battery. Probably not. Currently stranded in Hereford. The joy. Does anyone know how much it costs to replace or fix? Think...

  20. TDI timing / VCDS-Lite (2.5 TDI, 2002, AJT)

    Engine & Gearbox
    Morning all, As some of you are aware, I've recently changed the fuel pump timing belt. The van now starts up, albeit after a fair bit of cranking. It sounds OK once it starts, and will happily idle up to temp, but it's pretty fumey and if you try to drive it a pile of smoke billows out the...
