2.0 156 JTS Won't Start, HP Pump...Help!
I have exhausted all possibilities and seek all of your expert help.
Proud (used to be) owner of a 2005 2.0, 156 JTS Veloce. Whilst driving at 60mph the engine cut out and never started since.
First thoughts of cambelt, crank sensor etc have all been ruled out. No faults recorded on diagnosis, Alfa Romeo also confirmed so next issue was the fuel. The low pressure pump under the rear seats has been checked, and followed the fuel line all the way to the high pressure pump I never knew even existed, all ok, plenty of fuel. However, the high pressure pump isnt delivering any fuel back to the fuel rail. Checked the camshafts, all ok, also checked the pin which is known to go, also ok.
Advised it must be the actual pump itself, retailing at £1000! Managed to get one on here for £80 thankfully, however.....same again, delivering a little fuel back more than the last pump, but will not start!
Please can anyone advise, surely a high pressure pump should be delivering more fuel. The camshafts are turning, there solid and been checked, has anyone seen this pump delivering or can advise of anything else that it could be?
Thanks in advance
