    Bosch Pump woe's & Noise

    Update I started the car this morning fired up first time, tootaled off down the road for a couple of miles running normal Pump noisy as before. I came back around the island and put my foot down car pulled like a train through all gears then after a mile engine died and cut out, I came to a halt, turned the key fired up first time drove two miles back to home car ran faultless. Pulled on to the drive into neutral engine died and would not start. I then opened the boot and felt the pump, the bottom (intake) was hot, the top one (out) was cold, I left it 5 minutes and it started first time.. I am thinking it must be some rubbish from or in the tank outlet, its an original tank and when the car was finished it did stand over two years only doing 500 miles. Does that sound as it could be the problem. I am more or less convinced that I will replace the fuel tank as I want baffles in to stop the fuel starvation when turning left. Now chaps what's the best tank to buy, I was thinking the steel one from the TR Shop Paul

    What Waldi said in an earlier post makes sense that there could be a restriction from the tank ie rust flake or old fuel, it could make the pump work harder to pull it in

    It’s run for Two months perfect and changed nothing. The pump noise is beyond how loud a pump could be has anybody had had a faulty new Bosch pump

    Hi Guys I had new Bosch Pump, PRV to suit MU and injectors it was all set up and as been running fine during the last 8 weeks and around 250 miles. Monday morning I started the car up and noticed the pump was more noisy then normal, like it was racing. I pulled out on to the road running fine got to about a mile from home and the car just started jumping, missing etc. I manged to get to the garage where the work was done and as I pulled on to the forecourt it cut out. They had it yesterday and checked a few thinks out Filters all clear Fuel Tank clear Pressure to the pump ok Fuel tank showing between I/2 & full When I got there this morning it started but the pump was still making the same noise, and after starting and running the engine cut out. We put some more fuel in just to make sure and started it up pump noise still there I decided to take it home which is about three miles, all the way back it was faultless but the pump noise is still there. Before this started the pump was a tad noisy but that's to be expected and I could live with it, but how it is at this moment no way could I live with and I think its not running as it should. The garage are going to have it in early March and check it top to bottom, I have also told TR Shop about the problems with the pump and went through their trouble shooting list Any ideas chaps Paul

    Cheap PRV

    Chinese stuff tends not to last. I bought a airless spray unit for the business, the suppliers said it was manufactured in Ireland, it’s was built in Ireland Chinese materials, lasted about 4 months. In the end they had it back and I bought German, had it 5 years and only had the pump rebuilt once. Me and Chinese mechanical, no chance

    Feint High Pitch noise

    I spoke to guy who looks after the cars oily bits he said if it really feint not to worry. I did think about the fan belt I will investigate next time its out. The car as stood for two years and only done 500 miles with in that time, but people have said its not uncommon for a Clutch release bearing to go after a year. Paul

    Took my grandson for a walk around National Arboretum as its not far from us, he is only six but he loves to go and look at all the names, it troubles him a little when the talk gets to all the soldiers that died. But I think it teaches values which is no bad thing these days o On the way back over Cannock Chase I thought I would inject a bit of colour into the dreary January landscape. He also loves a trip out in the TR
