In Topic: diesel injection pump

13 December 2009 - 09:17 PM

Hi I am having starting problems with my 1800 escort diesel van 51 plate
Been told it may be the injection pump not sure yet so I thought I will get a second hand pump if this turns out to be the problem. But I have now been told that if I fit a second hand pump from another van it will not work as they are coded to the engine.
Can any one tell me if this is correct if so is there a way round this.
Thanks


hi there i had the same prob with my 75 escort van and i took 1 off my donner van 55 it still works but if ur low if in diesel it takes more effort to start. before u start it pump it from the diesel pump till its hard then it will fire up thats what i do every morning.
