Need some help
« on: 21:32, Tue 12 April 2011 »
My fuel pump has stopped workin today but i let the fuel run low so could it be blocked?

If so hows the best way to clear it out without replacing it?

As far as i know it's a sealed unit?

I suppose you could take it off and try and clear any blockages? I'm sure the fuel filter is between the petrol tank and the fuel pump so i doubt there is much in there?  :?

If the fuel pump is working then won't be the relay

If you have run it really low you sure you not run out of fuel, i'd be sticking about 10l of fuel in it then trying again. If not remove pump and filter and give then quick clean inside.

Fuel pump has just give up the ghost!!! Even with power goin to it it dont work!! Ive had volt testers on the wires and there is power at yhe end of them!!

Taken fuel pump off and tried running it off the battery and nothin happens so its just packed up!! Spoke to the lad tho and its the original fuel pump so needs upgrading anyway due to the bhp increase!!

Ive ordered a sytec motorsport fuel pump which will cope with 250bhp

If the Syntec pump is same or greater flow then the phase 1 fuel pump it'll work ok, don't worry about bhp claim of the pump its all about fuel flow.  :wink:
