Hi Guys

Hope everyone is well.... an update of what was done and what’s still to come.

I did a full service from the oil change, new spark plugs, new expansion tank, petrol filter, air filter, cabin filter, brake fluid and also changed the bonnet cable since mine had snapped which was stressful.

4 Days later I popped by Mintys and got all 4 new Nexen tires as I was on a budget

So Sunday evening on my way home from Chicken Licken I got inside the car and tried to start it up as usual and boom it would start  then just die out without moving and the first thought that came to mind was that the fuel pump has failed, I lifted the rear seat to listen as I cranked it and there was no sound coming from the fuel pump. I had to get the car towed home sadly lol.

So yesterday I went to get a brand new pump and installed it and also checked for any leaks while I put turned the key ON to see if the pump was working and then double cheeked you see if I secured everything and then I finally turned it on and it started on the first go.

It was a easy DIY and a new learning experience for me.

I must say it held up well for a 19 year old car and on exactly 320 000km with the original pump.
