How To Replace a Fuel Pump and Fuel Filter ~ Project White Wookie

How To Replace a Fuel Pump and Fuel Filter ~ Project White Wookie

Replacing a fuel pump or fuel filter can be scary. But if you follow these tips, and this DIY, you cando it. In upgrading the VR6 with bigger cams, and adding a turbocharger, I needed to upgrade the fuel system. With the added air, I needed more fuel. After much research and advice, I settled on upgrading the in tank fuel pump.

This “upgrade” didn’t quite go as planned. So this video will show you simply how to replace a fuel pump, and fuel filter. I am working on the video for “How to HACK upgrade your fuel pump”. That will be out soon. I have to be careful about those types of videos. I don’t want to spread bad practices out to the world.

failed VW parts

2.0t Fuel pump control moduleToday I am back to chat about more failed Volkswagen parts. We are looking at how the fuel pump control module fails on 2.0t engines. This module is on 2.0t gas engines from 2006 until now. There may be other engines that have this, or a similar module, installed. They will basically all fail in the same way.
