|05 2.2D fuel pump ? - Mr Delmonte|
£2,600 is estimate from Jag garage in Kent for repair to my pride & joy.
How it all started : -
Car just cut out on me without warning. Re-started ok so thought no more of it. Next day did same thing. Re-stared ok but this time very sluggish [safe mode ?] in getting me home. Called AA next day who couldn't get it going but after continuously turning over the starter [the poor thing she didn' like it, white smoke everywhere] it did fire-up so on the 'very nice mans' suggestion I limped to the local garage 2 mins down the road, with him following. They plugged it into something after a couple of days but couldn't find the problem so suggested I go to main Jag garage.
Next day collected car from them, which started first time would you believe & she drove the 25 min journey like a dream.
After a few days Jag technician rang to say my fuel pump has broken-up & deposited bits everywhere, so will need replacing along with injectors, some rail thing or other, filters, fuel tank drained & goodness only knows what else. I don't like to mention the cost again so I'll skip to
my dilema ... how come it drove ok to the main dealer garage ? with this sort of money involved are there questions I should be asking so I am absolutely sure they have got the diagnosis right ? has anybody out there had similar problems ?
Well there's where I'm at ... a broken car & redundant. If I could get it home again I could just sit in it. It's got leather seats don't you know ! Do reply ... anybody.

My 2002 1.9d Peugeot Partner just cut out on the road and will not start. There's no fuel reaching the injectors.
My Renault Scenic 1.9 DCi recently cut out when being driven out of the local supermarket car park. It could not be re-started and the AA was summoned....
Whilst driving along in my Volkswagen Golf IV automatic I heard a bang, and my car stopped and wouldn't restart. The AA diagnosed a fuel pump failure....
