BMW VP44 diesel pump repair

Bosch VP44 Diesel pump fitted to BMW 320D / 520D

 

This is a very common problem for all BMW 320D (E46) / 520D (E39) vehicles with the 2.0D engine built between 1998 and 2003. The fault will often seem to come out of the blue and will cause the engine to cut out, if running at the time, and will prevent it from starting again.

 

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.

The EDC is not available to purchase separately from the pump, so main dealerships have been ordering and replacing the entire thing.

We offer a cost-effective solution: send us your EDC to be rebuilt, there will be no need for coding once you get it back either.
