I've got a 52 plate Cabstar E120 double cab with a fuel

This answer was rated:

Hi,I've got a 52 plate Cabstar E120 double cab with a fuel pump problem,it just cut out going downhill,having got the van to the garage and putting it on a diagnostic a fault with the control unit on top of the fuel pump,Nissan don't replace the unit and replace the whole pump for around £2000,my local Bosch diesel specialist wants to plug diagnostic into the unit and see if they can replace parts in the unit but charge £60 +vat and £60 pounds an hour labour and still maybe a new pump,I'm thinking of just buying a used pump for around£180 and fitting it myself,is the Navara 2.5 pump compatible with my van?
The 3.2 cabstar and the 2.5 navara pumps are alot alike, but because of the long year range for these models you may want to make sure the pumps are identical if your getting it from a wrecker yard. Look at the suction valve connections and pump connectors to make sure they are the same as well. If it looks identical it should work for you.

cheers ***** ***** reply Jake,I've taken the van in to a specialist to diagnose the pump control unit problem,see what comes back then think about replacing whatever has faile,I've done a bit of digging and found a UK stockist for recon pumps at fraction of the price and should be able to swap myself,failing that the Navara pump is still an option as I've found corresponding part No.s from my pump to the Navara,terrano etc!cheers ***** *****
