I had a fuel leak from the fuel filter head on my TD5. After changing the filter and filter head and purging the air the fuel pump has become very very noisy.
This usually indicates air in the system. I checked for leaks and purged it over and over again but the noise remains. Before changing the fuel filter head the pump was almost silent.
Spoken to my Land Rover mecanic and he says there is nothing that can be done about it. According to him this sometimes happens and it becomes impossible to purge the air out of the system. It can go away if your lucky he says.
Anyone else experienced this?

Hi Pedro - not likely to get too far with this on here, not really a TD5 forum! Better off asking on Defender2.net or LRUK where you'll find more TD5 drivers. But good luck! (PS sounds like you need a new mechanic to me!)
