    Default sick car

    hi everyone, new to here, i have a 2003 2.0 dti vectra with a faulty diesel injection pump vauxhall wanted ready.... £2,568.55 to do the job ( i laughed at him and made a comment on what the 55p was for, perhaps the mechanics coffee while he rubbed his hands, with pound signs flashing in his eyes.. anyway i have had the pump removed and taken it to various diesel specialists who have informed me that bosch dont recon these pumps but they want the old one in exchange for a new one mmmm !! very suspicious i must say.. short of the story is that they have quoted me £1,355.00 + vat for this pump, is there anywhere in northamptonshire or anywhere that may be able to test it, or recondition my one or supply one cheaper than bosch, any help would be most appreciated, seems a shame to break the car up as its been really reliable upto now and being the elite version its fully loaded and a pleasure to drive.
    many thanks in anticipation for your thoughts.

    These pumps are re-cond. i remember a firm in southhampton that do a swap, or send your old one away to them. iirc it was still about£500+ then you have to get it fitted up.

    Here's one firm closer Clicky

    many thanks will give them a look up the pump has a ecu module on the top and what i've gathered then once i have found a replacement then fitted it, the car needs to go back into vauxhalls to be reprogrammed, i can poke up with the job costing me a £1,000.00 in total but any much more will need consideration
    much appreciated cheers

    ignorning the pump have a look at the ecu for the pump these are prown to having dry solder joints that through up false errors. The price they are charging you is for a new pump and new ecu ;-) you only need the ecu and in all fairness most can be repaired diy or auto electrician ;-)
