    Default Vectra C 2.2 Direct - high pressure fuel pump

    Hi

    My 'flat spot' problem has been diagnosed as a faulty high pressure fuel pump.Vx offered (due to all my previous problems- a lot!!) to look sympathetically to any repairs in the 4th year of ownership.I have been quoted around £500 (approx £380 for the part and £120-2 hours labour).They will pay around £270. Car has covered 47K

    "Deal" or "no Deal" ?

    It out of warranty and they dont have to offer anything technically. I'd take it, although you could ask for more, until they say "no".

    Thank your lucky stars you aint got a diesel. The price for a 3.0 V6 fuel pump fitted is around £3000

    Can anyone shed any light as to this being a common fault on the 2.2 direct or if I'm just unlucky

    it is fairly common on the older cars, i personally think if they are offering over 50% then you should take it. Your decision though.

    Ive actually seen a few threads about the 2.2 direct pump going. Not loads like, but enough to raise an eyebrow. Luckily us with the 2.2 none direct run a lower fuel pressure so seem to avoid pump probs.
