But it only seems to do it if I try to start it very early into the priming run.

I suppose a good pump would not need the priming run in theory, so this priming run is probably there to mask poor or early stage failing pumps?

This will be a real PITA, no way I can take all this time off work to piss about at the dealers. As I've been banned for 2 weeks 4.5 years ago they won't give me a courtesy car either, so that's another PITA.


Did you have the newest pump fitted? i.e. post 12/09 (item 1 ending 953 below)
