´Dear customer, thank you for choosing Justanswer. My name is***** would like to help you.

Please do not try to restart the vehicle.

The tank must be emptied. The fuel lines must be flushed and the fuel filter must be replaced.

When the fuel filter is replaced, you can already see whether there has been any major damage. If no workshop does it, shy away from the fuel filter. If there are brass chips in the filter, the injection system has been damaged. Then the injection pump and injectors have to be replaced. Then you have to reckon with about £ 2500-3500 damage.

If there are no brass chips in it you are probably lucky.

I would be very happy about a rating with 5 stars over the star bar at the top of the page, without this rating the site operator does not pay us experts.
