Default Peugeot Expert 2017 - FUEL PUMP ISSUE AT 27.000 miles????

Guys,

I need help.

My van 2017 model expert is broken down. The fuel was quite low and showing “50 miles” when i was on my way to garage.

It was parked for a while (a month ) due to side damage, on my way to garage it stalled and stopped.

I only drove for 2 miles. Then tried starting it threw “Engine fault, stop the vehicle”.


Called RAC they said tried using a spray and it kind of started with that particular spray inside the engine directly, they put it onto reader and it came up with fuel pump low pressure. I did put 30 inside the van lter on but still same!!! It just wont start!!

Its a 1.6 diesel version.

I’ve been told that there could be diesel cut off switch which needs resetting or is that a myth?

What shall i do!!!?

Get a REAL mechanic to look at it !

There is no cut off switch.

IF you have run out of fuel it will be difficult to restart as fuel needs primed up

You should NEVER let a diesel engine run out of fuel. The pumps use the fuel itself for lubrication.

Forget the " other emergency services" they are very limited in their knowledge and abilities, believe me. I sat at back of a van pouring out blue smoke after a certain yellow van driver said " its nothing, give it a blast and it will clear mate" for it to blow up 2 miles down the A40 in front of me. If its run out of fuel it could have drained way back down to the tank end and air could well be present. You need a decent mechanic to bring it back up and purge the system. Fuel tank floats are never that reliable but can also stick on even the newest vehicle after being laid up so dont trust them, stick a gallon in just to be on the safe side. Main thing is..never run a out!!

Gosh, so far it seems like its the low fuel, because when the van was sitting due to low battery we kept on running for good few hours although range was 40 miles. En route to petrol station it did this!

The mechanic i spoke to seems like nothing but a headache,

Anyone aware of good company / mobile mechanic in London to pop into Croydon area?

Thanks
Matt
