    It was reported on here in October that there was a Ford Transit Mk 7 recall for oil pump failure & we checked ours on Etis & with Ford dealership on their system & ours wasn't listed but now it is! Luckily we were alerted by a phone call from our local dealership.
    Please check with your VIN numbers here https://www.etis.ford.com/vehicleRegSelector.do
    Ours is having a service at the same time so hopefully it will be cheaper as the cost (& hopefully labour) of the oil & oil filter being changed should already be covered by the recall so not all bad.

    Good to know it wasn't just us! Bit concerning that we have only just been told when the initial recall goes back to at least August last year & our engine has been at risk all this time :unsure:

    A Funster on the original thread did mention that Citroen Relay & Peugeot Boxer 2.2 engines were affected so worth checking with your local Citroen dealer.

    Ours has a production date of September 2013 but worth checking with Etis & with local dealer on their system to be sure.

    Ok mine is 2009 . When i rang the ford garage they reckoned they knew nothing about any recalls .
    But if i gave them £100 they would put it on the laptop to check .......
    Yeah Right .....

    That's helpful of them :eek: Better to have a basic service & they check as part of that anyway as looking for the recalls/updates as they are paid for that work by Ford. All Ford dealerships are only franchises & seem to have their own "individual" ways of working & pricing. In our area huge difference in prices on parts - ranging from £120-£170 for a spare remote key! Have to shop around & negotiate on servicing costs too :(

    Ours booked in tommorow to be fixed I suspect the recall date is being phased in so they can cope

    Just had our oil pump replaced this morning plus a reduced cost minor service :) all taking around 3 hours. Ours is FWD but understand that it is a much bigger job if RWD as the sub frame has to be dropped :(
    Apparently the problem with these has been evident for the last 18 months with priority high mileage customers being notified first - AA, RAC, fleet & commercial. The bad news is that the pumps being replaced shatter into pieces so likely that a new engine would be necessary so essential to respond to the recall! If the oil pump is not replaced once notified then uncertain if Ford would foot the bill. Worth considering a Transit Centre for this job as they have had a lot of experience in replacing these. This is the new shiny one:

    As it seems very likely that this recall does also affect Citroen & Peugeot engines as they are all fitted with this pump I will post another recall thread so owners of these are at least alerted so they can check. Wouldn't like any Funsters to have this fail on their motorhomes & get stuck abroad waiting for a new engine...
