hello all, just a question someone may be able to answer.

We have a 5year old ute that broke down yesterday.Fuel pump.
At this stage we have been told the pump is no longer made.
And we may have to seach the wrecking yards to pick one up.
I'm sure parts should be avalible for 10 years or am I wrong.

Hi Scoof,
Assuming from your brief note it MAY be a Ford Falcon Ute (not a Courier), water pumps are available for about $80.00 retail.

Sorry Scoof,
Assuming that it is still a Falcon Ute, FUEL pumps are available for about 280.00. It is interesting to see that genuine are cheaper than non-genuine by around $40.00.
Regards,

G'Day Scoof,

By law all manufacturers must support vehicles with a complete range of spares for 10 years - doesn't legislate that they can't rip you off on price however.

If it is a Faclon 1 ton there would be 50 options other than genuine so no problem.

Hi Rolande
That's what I was getting at.(10 years parts service)

We just heard a pump is coming on overnight freight from Melbourne.
Yes it is a Racoon(Falcon) 3 day hold up over a simple part that should be off the shelf. We need better service than that.
Be alright if it didn't have a important machine on the back which was being rushed to a factory to get them out of the bleep .Now we are in the bleep with the factory.Enough of my hassles.Have a good day.
Thanks for all your reply's.

Hey Roland,
I must set the record straight. There is definitely no legicslation regarding time to service parts.
I have worked in senior positions in the auto industry all my life and can guarantee you that the Trade Practices Act (1974) says quote 'for a reasobale period of time'

Not sure what state you are in but maybe for future reference for EFI stuff a company in Sydney I use is AFI, (Australian Fuel Injection) Excellent service and much cheaper than OEM. I haven't got a phone number as I am at home but I have found if they can't help nobody can.

So you have a AU Ford Ute and they told you that the fuel pump was no longer available for them, Right, who told you this.
