i've got in workshop a transit which has a engine knock under acceleration which sounds like diesel knock, checked for fault codes and 2 recorded,
P0149- Fuel pump timing error
P1564- Reduced fueling mode
It does sound like a timing fault but i've checked static pump timing with pins and all seems ok. Can i replace diesel pump with 2nd hand one and code it in my self (is it just a matter of recoding keys to pump) or is it dealer only.
I don't want to fit a new pump £1300+Vat unless i'm 100% sure its the pump at fault. I've checked for air leaks and it all seems ok. Is the fuel pump timing solenoid removable, if so where abouts on the pump is it.
I have got the use of a ford wds machine but to be fair i'm not the best at this but i've got to learn somewhere and didn't want to have to involve dealers unless really necessary.
