A common failure we have found on the Ferrari F430, Ferrari 599 and Ferrari 360 is a malfunction with the hydraulic pump. As a result of this mechanical failure, car owners may find: vehicle won’t start; the vehicle starts but gears don’t shift; and/or car will drive but gears stop working after a certain period of time.
These can all be related to a fault in the F1 hydraulic pump. This pump delivers highly pressured hydraulic fluid to the gear actuators. It’s a constant working unit critical to the vehicle performance.
Actually, Ferrari recommends that this electric motor be replaced as a preventive measure in every car older than 5 years and/or after 10-15K miles.
Unfortunately, for vehicle owners, the F1 hydrolic pump retails for approximately $3,000 + labor.
At MasterClass Automotive, we have repaired numerous Ferrari vehicles experiencing this common failure. Luckily, we have been able to save their owners thousands of dollars in repair costs – as compared to dealer service. MasterClass Automotive offers competitive prices on all original parts and guarantee our labor for one year.

One thought on “Ferrari F1 – Common Failures – F1 Hydraulic Pump”
I may be having this problem. I start my car and the F1 light comes on and it switches into first and auto mode. I can’t get it to go to neutral or reverse for about 2 minutes. finally i can get it into reverse to get out of the garage. I drive and the light will come one and down shift the car and put it into auto. i can then put it out of auto and shift back up. this happens for about 5 minutes and then everything is fine. Any thoughts?
