Its so expensive because the entire fuel system is replaced as you cannot clean any metal fragments from the pump failure. So anything that is related to fuel is replaced.As a TDI newbie, can someone explain to me why this fuel pump costs $10k? Does this include a new engine and trans too? Sorry, I'm sure this a stupid question but I just don't see how this happens.
Is there any special maintenance that can be done to prevent it's failure??
