Audi A4 / A6 2.5 TDI V6

Audi VP44 diesel pump EDC repair

Bosch VP44 Diesel pump fitted to Audi A4 & A6 vehicles

 

This is a very common problem for all Audi A4 and A6 vehicles with the 2.5 TDI V6 engine built between 1997 and 2003.

 

The mechanical side of the pump is usually very reliable and gives very few problems, nearly all of the faults we see are caused by the Electronic Diesel Control unit (EDC) located on the top of the diesel pump. With internal malfunction of the EDC there will be no fuel pressure at the injectors.

 

In order to resolve this issue dealerships may seek to purchase a replacement diesel pump with EDC. Because the EDC is not available separately from the diesel pump this makes replacement very expensive and time consuming.

We are now repairing customers own Bosch VP44 diesel pump control units and providing a Lifetime warranty as standard.

These Bosch VP44 diesel pumps can be difficult and very time consuming to remove and reinstall to the vehicle, we recommend any removal/reinstall be performed by a trained technician ideally with previous experience of these pumps.
