Question about 2006 Tata Indica LSi
Check the feul pump relay
Posted on Nov 04, 2012
Hi I'm a Tata Technician. This issue with Tata Indicas is quite common if you often drive your vehicle until the tank is almost empty causing the the pump to run dry and burn out or if the vehicle has been standing and not use for approximately 3 month and more as after the 3 month(give or take) mark fuel starts to absorb water and water is a fuel pump worst enemy as the pump is essentially an electric motor.
Firstly remove the bottom part of rear seat and you will see a black round plastic lid. Remove this lid and you will now see the in-tank pump. Turn the ignition on and off and listen if the pump is pumping. It should sound like an electric motor spinning. If it is spinning everytime you turn on ignition then open the hood and note the two pipes coming through the firewall to the fuel regulator(round gold thing on the end of fuel rail. The top pipe is your inlet pipe and the one that runs just beneath it is your fuel return line going back to the tank. Remove the top pipe and place your thumb as a block the pipe, now turn on th ignition if you are able to hold it closed without fuel spraying out it means that the pump is faulty as that pump pumps fuel at 3.0bars of pressure and it's pretty impossible to stop that amount of pressure with just the strength of your thumb. In this case you would need to replace the pump. Keep me updated and I will guide you through on how to replace just the pump motor and not the entire pump housing which is what you would get at a dealership as they are extremely pricey.

not a bad little car i think,done one last year for a new clutch and i it was that easy that i honestly do not remember having any problems with it ,only one tip i will offer though and i do this on all motors and thats to drill a hole in the bellhousing with a hole cutter big enough to get a 10mm socket 1/4 drive through the hole to tighten the clutch bolts ,getting to old to struggle now so i make a hle that aligns up with the clutch bolts then fit bolts holding the clutch finger tight then once the box goes in nice and easy as the clutch plate can move a bit then two big bell housing bolts in and then rotate the flywheel twic tightening the bolts one by one .easy better than hurting ones back with a struggle
