i think you can get the timer control valve but it's expensive ive been told around 300, not sure how correct that is. you could pick up a cheap pump from here in the parts for sale and it will take you a day to fit it

You can buy the timer control valve, but it is a arm and a leg, I also think the pump will need recalibration after it has been fit.

If they have messed about with the pump the timing could be out, that will also give a code 12 fault

TCV is certainly available for the 3.0 and comes in at a few pennies over 190, ask me how I know?

expect they are different but I have a good 2nd hand one for the 3.0 which is on the bay just now
