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.
