Fuel Block Replacement TD5


Recommended Posts

yup they all do that after 100k. mine decided to leak after 120k.

change the entire thing. not cheap considering that it's just the gasket or o ring that leaks.

it's the fuel pressure regulator.

Thanks Andrew

Just done mine, poxy fuel hose on cooler was jammed, stress of releasing it broke pipe off cooler :angry:

The cooler pipes on early ones are only chemically bonded, coolers are stainless steel and plastic. A mate who works with stainless welded pipe back in, fine for a couple of days until end cap seal gave way. Got s/h replacement on way from breaker, they are £300 new :o

So if doing this job on early one, don't strain the fuel cooler pipes. Later ones have a totally different cooler design (surprise, surprise :rolleyes: )

Mine went a couple of months ago, I looked at the possibility of changing the O-rings but my leak was from the pressure regulator diaphragm so I had to change the whole thing. 2004 model, 85k miles. Not cheap but quick and easy to do.
