On a scale of 1-10, how screwed am I
« on: June 05, 2015, 07:03:29 pm »
Hey All,
So I have a bad feeling I'm in a world of hurt right now. I have been driving my rabbit all week, and just today arrived at my parents house, about 250 miles from home. When I got here, I noticed a slight diesel leak from the car, I popped the hood and found that the nut on top of the injection pump was slightly loose, and the leak was coming from that area.

Unfortunately, when I went to tighten it, the nut just spun. I have yet to disassemble it and determine if the nut or the shaft is the one that stripped, but I have a bad feeling its the shaft. Any idea how ***ed I am? Is it possible to have just the shaft replaced? Do I need a whole new pump? Should I be hopping on a train to tow the car home with my truck?

Thanks,
Sam

1, the answer is 1 on a scale of 1 - 10, it was the nut. I'll take my father's car to get another in the morning.
