What is the Purpose of a Fuel Pump?
The fuel pump is an important component in the engine. The purpose of the fuel pump is to deliver fuel from the gas tank to the engine. Once delivered, the carburetor or the fuel injection system use the fuel to run the engine. The fuel pump is responsible for maintaining and regulating a constant flow of fuel. This flow of fuel has to be provided at pressures that the engine can handle. The vehicle manufacturer specifications determine what pressure the engine can handle from the fuel pump. This process of providing a consistent flow of fuel is necessary when carrying heavy loads or acceleration.
What Does a Fuel Pump Do?
The fuel pump is always running as long as the engine is on. Eventually, due to the amount of exertion that the fuel pump goes through, it will need to be replaced. This type of replacement is typically found on vehicles with more miles on them.
Fuel Pumps in Older and Newer Cars
Older cars have a mechanical fuel pump. These were very modular components that make them easy to replace whenever necessary. This contrasts with newer vehicles that use an electric fuel pump. These newer fuel pumps are located close to the engine or can be inside the fuel tank. Whichever types of fuel you have, you should let us take a look at it for you.
What Are the Other Parts of the Fuel Pump?
Here are a couple of components of the fuel pump:
- Electrical Connections
- Fuel Filter
- Fuel Pump Relay
- In-line Fuses
Both the fuel pump and fuel filter should be checked or replaced at the same time. The fuel filter’s role is to clean any contaminants in the fuel before it reaches the engine. During inspection, we also look at the fuel pump relay and the in-line fuses.
How Can I Tell if My Fuel Pump is Failing?
- Car refuses to start
- Difficulty starting
- Fuel tanks generating whiny noise
- Weaker acceleration and power
Come see us before your fuel pump becomes bad.
