Has anybody experienced early petrol fuel pump failure with 1.0 125ps engined B-Max.± 36,400 miles on the clock and four and a half years old. In a past life I was a Customer Concerns Investigator working in the UK out of Ford Genk in Belgium and in so doing I drove on average± 63,000 miles a year with no problems. Our Customer Complaints office in Brussels just brushed me off with 'that is normal wear and tear as your car is rather old'. I will certainly take this further if someone has got any info that I can use.[img]smileys/smiley20.gif[/img]

I don't think fuel pump failure is an issue for the B max. A search on this site brings no results..

My Ecoboost 1l 125ps had a sudden fuel pump failure at about 25000 miles, 10 days short of three years old.

Huge inconvenience as it involved hours and hours in AA Relay and the sudden engine failure happened in extremely busy roadworks on the M6; really dangerous and scarey. My wife was driving at the time.

Repaired under warranty. Still love the car!Edited by: JohnU

Now there you have me. I thought there was only one.

I am reasonably sure it was in the fuel tank as the AA. chap who helped me said they have to drop the tank to fix it as there is not the sometimes found access hatch via the rear seat in the Bmax. Main dealers never seem to be very forthcoming about what has been done! I suppose most of their customers are not particularly interested in the problem.

I wonder, is this a common fault, or at least something other BMax owners have suffered. ?

Out of interest Vinnie, do you let the fuel level get very low before topping up ?
The only time I've had a fuel pump problem was on a Honda Accord. It developed a loud whine,
possibly as I often let the fuel level get low ? It didn't pack up completely though.

the in tank pumps are very common items between makes and models, and don't often fail.

the ecoboost 1L engine HP pump is unusual, since its very high pressure [direct injection] petrol. (common on diesel engines, but those pumps are better lubricated by the fuel)
