Has anyone had a similar fault diagnosis. Engine starts fine and runs well but every now and again engine management light comes on (heater coil symbol in orange) and engine dies, no power, no accelerator. Put pedal down to floor and engine will just turn over, keep it flat to floor and engine will pick up revs but as soon as you release pedal engine dies again. Turn engine off and restart and sometimes ok and sometimes takes a few goes. Leave it a day (overnight) and it starts and runs. Been to garage twice. First said it was a crank sensor - from plug in diagnosis. Second time - needs a new pump. A Lucas one. Provisional cost £1000 - £600 for pump refurb + labour. So drove it home. Started first time and ran perfect.
I am confused. Can a pump be so intermittant?. Can anyone help please. Van is 2002 done 96k and only used occasionally to run to allotment and tip, so dont want to spend a lot of money on it.
