MG ZR ZS ZT Technical - Fuel Pump Failure
|whilst in Yorkshire after some enthusiastic driving the V8 decided to start to misfire and then to not work at all.|
fuel pump Failure.
It's a common thing and there is a shortage of pumps so if this happens to your car you'll know what's wrong!
Funnily enough I was just reading about this - Rog Parker has written up the problem and how to DIY change the pump in the MGOC magazine - page 17.
|Is there a better pump available?|
|How did you get home Neil? Roger was suggesting filling the car up. Also what is the current mileage of your car?|
|Car towed home on Green Flag trailer, all the way from Knaresborough Yorkshire!|
I need to read the MGOC article, is it published on the web?
Current mileage 13,000
I'll scan in the article and email it to you.
I am a member of the MGOC ( boo) so it should be coming.
anyhow the task of fixing it is occuring right now at Trident so unfortunatley it's a bit late. I think/hope I am actually getting the job done cheap though!
in Communications with Rog about this and the results of my "Spirited" (as Cannonball Bob would call it) trek ( warp factor 9) across the Yorkshire moors! Tyres, brakes, engine, handling etc.
|Should have had it by now Neil. Its been out for about two weeks. Good article, did not know there were two fuel pumps until I read it. You can read the problems I've had with the electrics if your interested.|
|All better now going beautifully. £222 later|
I expected electrical gremlins when I bought the car so I deleted all the electrical bits for reliability sake
no sun roof, no sat nav, no traction control, nada!
only air con and extra airbags
|No traction control Neil? Clearly, you were thinking of fitting a supercharger then! |
Chatting to Rog about the 260 - and he mentioned that the TC has to be disabled if you are fitting a SC. The Ford TC that the 260 is fitted with is a very basic fuel cut off - perfect for detonating forced induction engines!
|Yeah traction control is for old ladies|
