    Default 1.9cdti 16v fuel pump

    Hello all. i recently had my inlet manifold replaced due to the swirl valves going and the egr valve fault. Today i noticed a strong smell of diesel. I have just had a look and on the left side of the engine under the fuel pump there is a pool of diesel. I have read that the fuel pumps can leak on these engines. Is this an easy job to replace the fuel pump? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

    The fuel pump on this engine can cost at least £2,000. Where is the pool exactly?

    I think they can be refurbed though.

    THanks for your reply. From where I can see it's directly under the fuel pump and the pump itself looks wet. Is it a relatable easy job to replace or is it a garage job? Thanks Paul

    Think garage job. Is the fluid/fuel ontop of the manifold?

    Yes it is. The manifold has not long been replaced so it's very clean so you can see it easily. Going to have a proper look tomorrow and see if I can see anything. I'll post my findings. Thanks Paul

    To replace the pump is a peice of cake - it has to come out to replace the manifold anyway. It's driven by the cambelt but you can lock the sprocket in place and it isn't timed so it wouldn't take more than a couple of hours to change at most. I don't know how much they cost but if it's only been leaking since the job was done it could simply be a loose pipe or hose...

    Yeah I read somewhere that the metal pipe from the pump to the fuel rail should be replaced once the unions have been undone. I re-used mine when I replaced the manifold but I was very careful the fittings didn't get cross-threaded and did them up ****ing tight! There was a post from one member who had leaking fuel after a manifold change and he had to use ptfe tape on that pipe fitting to cure it.

    Hello all. Thanks for your replies. After a better look today in daylight i spotted the problem straight away. On the fuel pump if you look straight at it there is a large torx bolt and 4 smaller ones around it. One of the smaller ones had come out so the fuel was leaking out of there. I phoned the stealers who said they dont do any spares for the pump only complete pumps priced at £1064plus vat!!!!. So i took one of the bolts out and took it to a local faster place who matched it exactly size wise but with an allen head instead of a torx and he give them to me for free!! Bonus. Put it on tightened it up and its not leaking any more. I will take some pics and post them as they may be help to somebody in the future. Thanks Paul
