Nissan VP44 diesel pump EDC repair

Bosch VP44 Diesel pump fitted to Nissan Almera / Patrol / Terrano

 

This is a very common problem for all Nissan vehicles with the 2.2 DI & 3.0 DI engines built between 1999 and 2001.

 

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.

However internal malfunction of the EDC will cause the vehicle to cut out, if running when fault occurs, and will prevent the engine from starting again.

Scanning the vehicle with diagnostic tools will give you fault codes for spill valve or injection begin errors, which are sure signs that the EDC has failed.

 

Because the EDC is not available separately from the diesel pump itself, main dealerships will often or a new replacement diesel pump with EDC.

We offer a better solution – repair of your original EDC, and there’s no need for coding once you receive the unit back to us either.
