A week ago I drove our runabout Pug into Lidl for a quick bit of shopping. On returning to the car it started almost then died.

It was recovered to our usual garage where they diagnosed a fuel pump failure. The scanner showed no engine problems. A genuine Bosch pump was declared too expensive and an aftermarket new unit at 115 eu was fitted. Bingo off we went. until next day when she again conked out near Stekas' shop.

Recovered again, pump working but operating insufficient pressure, new one delivered and fitted. Bingo 2 running but a bit short on power on hills.

I check Ebay and find genuine pumps are not horrendously expensive. Also the pump pressure of the originals is 3.5Bar copies 3.2Bar and less plug and play.

Pug starts to loose power in roundabouts and feels sluggish. Saturday Pug cangaroos at the lights in Paralimni and I have to nurse it to the garage where it again died.

This time a Genuine Bosch pump was sourced.....an extra 50eu inc VAT.

Pug now pulls like a train again (strange screeching noise from front tyres,)Laughing fingers crossed problem solved.

The fuel pump comes complete with a level float, filter, pressure valve ECU sender and drops into the top of the tank in minutes with no complications as there is an access panel under the passenger seat.

If you run or service a petrol Peugeut or Renault, it will probably have one of these pumps fitted, if yours fails insist on an OEM replacement and avoid the hassle of another breakdown.

PS The Motor Factor is now trying to avoid repayment to the garage until the unit has been tested.

I break Japanese and French cars and sell the fuel pumps in days of advertising. At least it not a MK1 focus where it has no access panel and you are meant to drop tank
