Pumps can throw crap through the system but i've not heard of one frag the whole system.
May be worth biting the bullet and trying a Ford Mechanic for at least advice.
Saying that, even good reconditioned pumps are going for £500+ on eBay.

it is believed that as the pump breaks down metal particals go up the high pressure outlet and into the injectors damaging the injectors, they are aslo returned to the tank via the return line from the pump. it is recommended with pump failure to remove the tank clean and flush, clean out all lines replace the filter, the pump the injectors and all high pressure lines to be completely confident that all metal particals have been removed from the system.
quick question what year is your car and what leads you to belive your pump is breaking down?

Chris these are the right tools, not cheap though. My car is a 53 plate 2ltr tdci ghia x estate ( auto).
I have been getting the flashing glow plug lights of doom for sometime, about 6 months. it has got to the stage where if i put too much load on the pedal the glow plug light will come on and in most cases it will cut out. I then restart the engine and all is well until
it is put under any strain again. this is happening 2 or 3 times on a journey, especially on hills. I have cleaned the EGR valve and MAF sensor, Changed the fuel filter and cam sensor. I asked a mechanic aout the crank sensor but he said it would not start if it was faulty. also the diagnostic came up with P0251 Injection pump metering control A. so the mechanic said in his experience it is the pump.!! I know this is a bit long winded but this has been going on for a while and i wonder if i am going to be throwing money at it forever.
Cheers for any advice you can offer

try a leak of test at a local mechanic cost is not much and will shed some light on your problem. you more than likely have the same problem as i had as the symptoms are near identical
