What are the defects?
The above vehicles' high pressure fuel pumps may fail due to poor lubrication of the front bearing. Initially the driver may experience an unusual engine noise from the engine compartment. Fuel may leak via the fuel pump front seal onto the rear of the engine or onto the ground under the vehicle. It may reduce engine performance and other low fuel pressure related drivability concerns which will normally be accompanied by a Malfunction Indicator Lamp being displayed. The driver may also experience a diesel odour.
