Air in the fuel lines can be for many reasons but the most common is leaking fuel pipe joints, fuel filter or sticking non-return valves.

If it were my car I would insist the contents of the fuel filter be checked for signs of metal particles using a magnet.
Yes, they are on the hunt for a second hand unit. They can't find one locally, so are looking further afield, and that was why they didn't phone me when they said they would apparently.

I think they used a magnet originally to check the fuel tank was free of particles, do you think I can insist on them doing this again? Do you think they'd even be honest with me if that was the case?

Do you think that the tank sender unit should have been replaced originally? Is it all connected? Could it be related to the original problem?

Sorry for so many questions, I just need to get it all straight in my head, I'm not clued up on cars at all.
