In Topic: New Fuel Pump - Black Edition, 3500 Miles

Hi, yes, I did.  I had to get a new fuel pump when the car was only months old and I had done less miles than you.  


I still hear it, but it's nothing like it was when it was at it's worst.  It was all done under warranty tho so no problem.  The mechanic came out for a wee run with me and he agreed that it was too noisy and should be replaced.

I have an ecoboost in the Zetec trim.  Yes, it has stop/start but I spend so much of my work commute in traffic and crawling along slowly, that I switch it off.  If I know I'm going to be sitting for longer than 10 seconds for example, I will push the button and use it, but otherwise it's just switched off as a matter of course when I start up my car.


I absolutely LOVE the ecoboost engine and I went from a 1.25 82ps.  I could not believe the difference when I first took it out.  I didn't even test drive one first.  I had researched a bit and when I went to the garage I saw the Candy Blue model sitting there and I asked where could I sign !!!!  


Stick to your guns.  If you want an ecoboost model then go for it.  The difference in the 2 is night and day, trust me, and you will just adore the turbo !!  :)

Mine was definitely red this morning as it was -1 when I set off for work today.  Goes amber anything above 0 degrees as it's pretty much been on all week-end !!!
