How to Inspect and Replace a FSI Cam Follower and HPFP

How to inspect and replace a FSI HPFP and Cam Follower on a MK5 GTI. The high pressure fuel pump and cam follower is a common MK5 FSI failure. Checking the cam follower is basically maintenance. Also failure can cause check engine light codes P0087, P1093, P2293. Today I will show you step by step how to DIY the FSI fuel pump and cam follower. Thanks to FCP EURO and Meyle for sponsoring the MK5 Rusto-Mod project.

Volkswagen TDI Fuel Pump Warranty Extension ~ Audio Podcast Episode 79

Today we are going in depth on the warranty extension for common rail high pressure fuel pumps HPFP. This is a new extension that will cover certain Volkswagen TDI engines including:TDI Fuel System Failure

  • 2009-2012 Volkswagen  Golf
  • 2009-2012 Volkswagen  Jetta
  • 2009-2012 Volkswagen  Jetta Sportwagen
  • 2009-2012 Volkswagen  Touareg
  • 2012 Volkswagen Passat

To find out if your VW is covered under this warranty extension, call your local dealer and give them your V.I.N. they can look that up for you. Failure of these pumps has been happening since about 2011. One of the bad things about HPFP failures is the cost of repair. The entire fuel system is replaced when metal from the pump is pushed into the fuel system.

Join me today as we discuss:

  • Terms of the warranty extension terms
  • What vehicles are included in the HPFP warranty extension
  • The very strict criteria for HPFP warranty extension coverage
  • Fuel samples under the HPFP warranty extension
  • Modified cars under the HPFP warranty extension
  • What happens when a TDI is filled with GAS.
  • More pictures of HPFP failures
  • and more

VW and Audi 2.0t TSI High Pressure Fuel Pumps Fail (HPFP)

Next up in our series on failing Volkswagen parts, we are looking at the 2.0t TSI High Pressure Fuel Pump failure. I will be using HPFP for short. This is a failure that I was replacing regularly a few years ago. Today we don’t see the failure rate that we did, but they come in from time to time. We have had cars driven in with a bad HPFP, as well as towed in. This is a part failure that may leave you stranded. The good thing is that no top end damage is done to the engine. The BPY 2.0t is a much more catastrophic failure. I did a video on  BPY Cam follower and HPFP failure if you want to learn more.
