Re: Help !!

Hi, had the same problem last autumn with 3 attempts at the itv. Eventually changing spark plugs, a bottle of injector cleaner and a good thrash on the way to the centre solved it. Haven't got the numbers.

What's the story at the mo with quarantine and itv?

Re: Help !!

Story is, as they have closed the itv stations, you can drive with expired itv.
I was wanting to go for resit this week, but its closed. So im going to continue to drive.
But not really as im only allowed to drive to the supermarket and back !
Are you not likewise in Spain ?
Where is ur place in Spain ?

Your rubber seal is possibly perished and stuck to the metal. Just prise that ring up with a screwdriver !!
Look at my fotos from this afternoon, look at the debris in the bottom cup part of the fuel pump. I took it off cleaned it, also went around inside of the tank with a cloth and caught more bits of shti floating about.
Was a bit happier when i finished that fuel seemed cleaner.
Top man! Thanks!

Planning to use self-imposed isolation to get a few jobs done!

Re: Help !!

to be perfectly honest I have never seen a fuel filter that bad. If the filter is that bad what does the rest of the fuel system look like. The tank and lines must have some serious contamination. On two occasions my car acted in the way you described and I believe it to be a problem with the fuel pump, perhaps a split in the pick up hose allowing air into the fuel line. I never let the fuel get low now and it hasn't happened for about 20K . But I do plan on replacing the pump.

I replaced the pump last year, so no probs there. Also the inside of the tank looks fine.Its the debris coming from the rubber pad that was under the pump. Hopefully i will get rid of all the debris soon. Ive bought another filter so will fit that again soon.

Took fuel pump out AGAIN this afternoon, still some rubber debris in bottom of fuel pump, so cleaned that out, also tried to put on new rubber seal around top of pump !! Ehh no chance, i had to cut half of the new one away, it just was too think, top of pump would not press into tank. I mean No Chance !! I even got up ontop of the tank and tried to push it in with my foot. So cut the rib off it !
So awaiting the itv station to open again, then i will put som e cat cleaner in petrol and hopefully will pass this time. I also took MAF sensor out and sprayed it with cleaner.

Re: Help !!

Hi, are the rubber gaskets readily available? I seem to remember in a previous thread that the gasket seal was not available and a gasket goo (silicon sealer) was used instead.

Re: Help !!

Autodoc is good, I think most common auto suppliers will do their best to supply a part, afterall the fuel pump is used on other FIAT cars. I just thought in the absence of a pattern gasket a petroleum product liquid gasket/silicon may be a substitute.
Good luck
Thanks arnietwo thanked for this post
