Thanks all, for the input. I think we may have found the problem. Jonathan2263
Got down to the pump and it appears someone has been in there before. The nuts holding the cover were finger tight. Looks like the ring had been removed recently. The pump is not new.
Set the key to 2 position, no pump noise, checked voltage, have 12v at connector to pump Tried the give it a thump test but no life in the pump. Checked if any fuel pressure in rail, nothing.
Therefore can we safely assume that it is the fuel pump that just happened to fail after a 1,000 kilometer trip, the infamous engine bay clean a hand over to the wife a trip around the block up the driveway and then not starting, is the result of The fuel Pump?
