Comment: Petrol Toyota Landcruiser 200 fuel contamination and blockage problems

take the screen of the pump while the tank is off and let the filter do its job.

Hi Mac - thanks for your idea. I'm told that the fuel pump is very tight toleranced and can not be subject to particles - therefore the screen. Without the screen filter the pump will fail should it be subjected to foreign materials. Additionally the screen filter can not be easily removed. It is fitted by reverse washer and essentially locked onto the pump.

Just so you know it failed again two days ago, causing me to cut my holiday short and attempt to drive home all night (low temperatures) in limp mode...

I'm onto Toyota right now....
