Fuel Pump on 240D Comes Out
The fuel pump on my 1979 240D (rebuilt engine) came partially out recently. The engine still turned over and fired, but it cut out after a couple seconds, I'm guessing because it didn't have enough pressure. A little diesel was even leaking out. Pushing it back in and pumping it a few times solved the problem, but I don't want to repeat this if I can help it... Why would a pump come out like that? Vibrations? Rough roads? Filling up the tank too much? Some other reason?
Thanks a lot for any advice... I am new to Mercedes/diesel maintenance and really need to learn.
