Finally got the car back. I've updated the post with photos of the faulty pump.

No its not direct injection as far as I know. This model is usually a 2000cc and mine is some Japan only variant which is 2500cc. May be that's why? Mechanic did mention its a larger engine and the pump is larger than usual. I don't know what to make of that.

I'm not sure if the pump was the original or not. Car is an import, and I'm the first owner in this country. Odometer is just under 90,000KM. (bought 3 years ago at 60,000km and only changed brakes pads and rotors (worn out), air filter, and drive belt (it had cracks according to the same tech guy) since. So I think it's safe to assume the pump still the original?

he specifically said that he is getting me a second hand pump, coz a brand new one would cost over 1700 (NZD), so the second hand unit is around 300 (NZD). (He didn't mention anything about the fuel filter) Two faults may not be related, but I too am curious as to whether its pure coincidence or not. Any advise ?

its a petrol car. Evidently there are 2 pumps. One closer to the tank and the other closer to the engine. One closer to the engine is the one that needs replacing.

comment Is it possible to lock wheels when ABS is working?
I'm not sure about all 4 wheels. But pretty sure it locks both front wheels. It doesn't unlock unless I get my foot out of the brake pedal. I tried this and had a skid going for about 4-5 seconds. Does that mean ABS is not working ? Should it unlock the wheels when it detects locking front 2 wheels ? (My car is front wheel drive.)
