Diesel Swaps / Re: ? 1.9TD block w/ 1.6TD heads ?
« Last post by mstephenson on Today at 09:43:12 pm »
I have a question about about the water pump and anti-freeze.

The motor was built in 2001 and I was told approx 40k miles driven. When I flush and replace the coolant w/ VW G12, should I replace the water pump as well?

I realize this is not the correct place to ask so thank you for indulging.

Excellent!  Glad to hear that worked. 
ME TOO!   Old truck driver's trick, using ATF to clean up fuel systems. Don't know if you'll find it in a repair manual anywhere....

I love simple fixes that take care of themselves overnight while you snooze on it.

It runs. Left it sitting for about a day with 1/2 diesel 1/2 ATF in the pump. Looks like that was enough to free up the vane pump. Made sure everything was full, cranked until I had fuel at all 4 injectors. Fired! Still some detail work to do but should be on the road again this week.

mTDI Mechanical TDI Conversions / Help identifying pump in AFN mTDI
« Last post by siwalker93 on Today at 03:47:29 pm »
Can anyone help me identify the pump thats installed on my AFN mTDI?





It runs fine but feels like its lacking power, certainly doesn't seem to be realising full potential of the engine so I'm guessing fuel pump isn't adequate.

Thanks for any insight,

Simon

I'm hoping so. If I have to I can pull the pump off the engine I just pulled but would rather not. Need that engine complete for another project.

Since he provided this for context:

Engine I swapped in ran when pulled  from another car a lot of years ago but was tired.

And he already replace the front seal.

I would put my dime on the vanes being stuck as well.  They do that if they sit for a few months. 

You might have luck with some Diesel Purge and not have to pull the pump apart.

Any time I have had a problem like this, it was always remedied by replacing the front seal in the fuel pump (the seal on the input shaft). The front seal allows loss of pump fuel prime.

No, I am not going to debate you saying you have fuel at the pump, etc. I always did, too. But, it is not enough pressure to actually fire the injectors.

Every time, as soon as I replaced the front seal.....problem solved. Eventually, ALL of my pumps were wearing new seals and I was never standing still. End of story.

EDIT: and, no...I have not run any clear fuel lines in right at 30 years. You don't need to if you are half-way bright. And.....THAT is exactly what I am....half-way.
