So this is actually the 4th Injector pump? Am I reading this right? On a car that has 98K miles... That is not normal wear and tear.

Bad Biodiesel can contaminate and cause corrosion in in an Injection pump. It can also contaminate the entire fuel system and ruin your injectors as well.

Did they replace any other parts of the fuel system?

Hi-- I was just posting to ask what the car is worth. I re-posted on Craig's List for $7500, following advice from a few people.

I don't know what else was replaced. The car is running great with the new pump and whatever else they put in. I haven't used a bio-diesel mix in about 12 years.

Are you referring to wvo or biodiesel? It's difficult to buy diesel without "up to" 5% bio from the pump these days. WVO would explain the pump failures.

Many truck stops in CA now sell B20 exclusively. I’ve never tried it and don’t plan on it anytime soon.

This is another recent thread where bad “Biodiesel” from somewhere in Northern California also ate up two injection pumps on an ALH.

http://forums.tdiclub.com/showthread.php?t=493082.

I wonder if this same batch of contaminated fuel was consumed by both engines?

You're in North Carolina. You probably need a boat instead of a car. I was born in Ft. Bragg a long time ago, but didn't stick around long enough to get an accent. Good luck finding a closer TDI wagon.

It was mostly B5% from a local station, which is supposedly ok with the VW corporation. But I haven't seen B5 in a long time, and I've stayed away from it, even though I've heard positive points about using it.

So, your cl ad has been removed. Is there a way to post a few pics and post a price?
