    The lift pump sounds expensive as does the Turbo, If the pump needed special equipment for the timing thats always a bit sore but I'd still say its not sounding too good.

    Hi I know that there was a problem with the fuel pumps but I thought that GM was giving an extended warranty claim period on these engines so you could get the money back?

    I had an Allegro but I did not, fortunately have any problems, but I had met others who had and seem to recall about 3/4 years ago the fix cost about £1800?

    Anyone know any different?

    Pump and warrenty stuff.

    We're '95 Winne on the P30 with the Chevy 6.5td and, she came with a receipt for arond £1800 for the pump and the owner did say that there was an extended warrenty as these pumps did experience problems. He also said it took him nigh on two year to get the money but the place that did the work advised him to persist as GM were notoriousy slow at paying out.

    Just noticed the 2000 bit, I assume a year 2000 model.

    The previous owner of our Winne I think said something about a 13 year warrenty on the pump, on the off chance he was correct it could be worth checking out?
