    1.7 Diesel Pump or EDU failure

    Hello people, my first post on here.

    I'm a Honda man at heart, so please bear with me as my Vauxhall knowledge isn't what it could be.

    I want to buy my friends 1.7 Turbo Diesel Astra Estate, 2000 model year. It has the Izuzu engine.

    It's off the road at the moment, with what he says is a diesel pump failure. I've done a little research on the web and it seems that the EDU is often the problem rather than the pump itself. Am I right in thinking this ?

    Is there any way of knowing for sure which one needs replacing? It would be a shame for him to bust loads of cash (I'm not buying it till it's fixed and MOT'd) on a whole new pump when he could have had the EDU repaired instead.

    This is what I thought.

    Poor ****er has got his bro in Portugal to get him a new pump which probably won't even solve the problem. I'll have to see if he can take it back.

    Is there any definitive way of knowing weather it's the pump or EDU ?
