Rover VP44 diesel pump EDC repair

Bosch VP44 Diesel pump fitted to Rover 25 & 45

 

This is a very common problem for all Rover vehicles with the 2.0 IDT engines built between 1999 and 2005.

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. Internal malfunction of the EDC will prevent the engine from starting, if the vehicle was running at the time of the fault the engine will simply cut out.

 

Rather than ordering a full diesel pump, these EDC units are not available to purchase separately from the pump, we offer a more cost-effective solution: rebuild of your original EDC. This way there will be no need for coding once you receive it back from us.

 

Rover diesel pump EDC rebuild

Please note that we only test the EDC on top of the pump, we cannot test the mechanical part of the pump.

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. Attempting to run these pumps when they are drained of fuel can seriously damage the mechanical side of the pump
