Dealer sez...........I need your help
Well 4 months later and the car cuts out again twice. The dealer diagnosed it as follows:
"Road test verified complaint,basic engine test, fuel pressure test; diagnosis revealed fuel filter dirty, fuel pump, fuel pump relay, switch over relay faulty/compromised;replacement recommended for correction. No correction performed. Customer advised of vehicle condition. $140."
So, the fuel filter was changed about a year ago and less than
5000 miles ago. But I can accept that the filter is dirty due to some contaminant.
However, I figure my fuel pump is OK (original pump) but perhaps the relays may be bad.
I ask for opinions.
Which relay should I replace first? Both?, then also replace the filter and cross fingers that pump is OK??
OR is it about time to replace the pump also??? (112K miles).
I just wonder whether this apparent shot gun approach to replacing all items listed is genuine or malarky.
Your opinions are appreciated.
