VW Passat 2.5 TDI V6

Volkswagen Passat diesel pump EDC fault

Bosch VP44 Diesel pump fitted to VW Passat 2.5 TDI V6

 

This is a very common problem for all VW Passat vehicles with the 2.5 TDI V6 engines built between 1998 and 2003. When the vehicle is running failure of the VP44 EDC will cause the engine to cut out, on idle or while driving. Internal malfunction of the EDC will also prevent the vehicle from starting again until the fault has been rectified. Codes may be stored for injection begin error and injection pump malfunction.

 

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. You cannot purchase this part separately from manufacturer so would need to purchase a full diesel pump setup, that will also need coding at an extra expense.

Our solution is far more cost-effective – we can test and rebuild your EDC within 2-3 working days, and return it to you with an unlimited mile lifetime warranty.
