Rover 75 Diesel Fuel Pump Problems
I would be grateful for any help regarding a couple of issues I have with the above vehicle, which is a 2002 plate.
The first is an intermittent fuel pump problem, which I have been having on off for about 18-months. On occasion the car would not start and would also have a loss of power when driving. I have not had any problems with non-start for about 2-months now but the loss of power seems to happen about once a week. The RAC said it was the fuel pump and to continue with it, if the vehicle didn't start was to pop the bonnet and hit the fuel pump, which I do and works. I have been on the forums and noticed threads about fuel pump clips but these seem to be for the petrol version only. Is it worth getting a fuel pump clip or do the symptoms suggest a problem with the fuel pump itself and if so what part? Any comments would be greatly appreciated.
Also I have a water leak in the vehicle and with the bad weather we have been having, the vehicle at times resembles a swimming pool. I have invested in a car vacuum cleaner but as fast as I clean the water out, it rains and fills up again. I have been to a garage and they cannot locate the problem. The water fills up in the passenger side and the rear passenger side. I have checked the plenum tubes and first time they were filled with rubbish but they are now clear and the problem persists. The front windscreen was replaced recently due to a crack and the problem has occurred prior and after the replacement. I have checked nearside door seals and sunroof seals and all seems well. The seals in the boot were also replaced about 12-months ago. Again any comments would be appreciated.
