Vauxhall astra V reg GM engine 17tdi none runner
Ive got a vauxhall astra v reg 1999, 1700 turbo diesel. 8 valve GM low blow engine.
I put £15 bio diesel into car, then a week later I put £20 normal diesel into car as it was near empty. I was driving along at 40mph when suddenly my engine management light came on, the car then cut out and wouldn’t start again, So I took injector off a little bit to see if any diesel was coming through injectors, no diesel at all coming through, bone dry.
I took car to get diagnostic test on it, the bloke said my fuel injector pump is faulty and would need replacing, he also gave me these fault codes, p0400, p1631, p1651, p1345, p1630, po725. So I bought a second hand fuel injector pump of ebay. It’s the exact same fuel injection pump wih part number 0470004003. paid a garage to put it onto car, garage rang me and said its on the vehicle but the car still wont start, they towed it around the block, still wont go, they have checked to see if the pump is getting diesel to injectors, no diesel coming to injectors.
As they had done there job I paid them and took car to vauxhall main dealers as garage said the pump mite need reprogramming, vauxhall reprogrammed the pump and car still wont start. So I paid vauxhall to run a diagnostic on it. They then rang and said the machine is coming up with pump malfunction number 3. I said whats this mean, they said that either the pump timing was out or it’s a faulty pump. I rang garage and garage said even if the pump timing was out, the pump would still pump fuel to injectors. So now im back to square one.
Does any one have any ideas or is it time to burn the car, as im proper close to smashing it to bits. Could I have been sold a dodgy pump even though the bloke of ebay said it was working… thanks
