How VW Parts Fail ~ TDI High Pressure Fuel Pumps
Today we are talking about more failing Volkswagen parts. This is a failed parts video that took a long time to do. We are looking at how the TDI HPFP or High Pressure Fuel Pumps fail. This has been an issue on the common rail TDI for a while. There is more to it than just mis fueling. Today we take an in-depth look at the HPFP failures common on 2009-2014 Jetta, Jetta SportWagen, and Golf.

I just found your website. Great videos. Quick question. My HPFP failed a week or so ago (according to my service advisor there was a significant amount of metal shavings in the fuel pump). My dealer informed me today that my fuel sample passed and they will begin repairs. When I asked what parts they will need to replace he said only the fuel pump. Does that sound right? If there are metal shavings isn’t it a given that you have to replace more (like fuel injectors)?
Thanks very much!

Olá. Eu fiquei com dúvidas em relação a causa principal do problema. Essa falha é causada pelo combustível de baixa qualidade? E qual a origem desse metal acumulado na bomba? De onde ele vem?
