I have been having some real problems with my eTec and the dealer that I bought it from is starting to give me real cause for concern.
I have had problems with the engine cutting out when idling and refusing to start for several minutes now if I turn the engine off when it is warm it sometimes refuses to start.
The engine has now been back three times to the dealer and each time he say that there are no faults showing on the computer and that they reckon its a fuel related issue.
The last time they had the engine they said there was crap in the external fuel filter and that some of it had got through to the pipe leading up to the internal engine filter. However even though they dealt with this the problem persists.
I have just got back home and pulled the hood to take a closer look at the fuel filters and I have just noticed that an assembly on the back of the engine that I can only assume is the fuel pump is hanging on by one bolt. the other bolts are there but the plastic lugs on the fuel pump have snapped off
the thing is the remains of the lugs are not on the bolts which must mean somone removed them.
I know the dealer has done some work on the pump as he said he checked the pressure to see if it was the cause of the problem.
Help what do I do I really don't trust anyhting these guys are telling me anymore.
