What is a Fuel Pump?

Fuel pumps help get the fuel in your vehicle's fuel tank where it needs to go, so you can get where you need to go. Well, when I put it like that, the pump seems pretty important to your engine, doesn’t it? That’s because it is. A pump is a critical part of you engine fuel line system, so unless you have a fully electric car, it’s a pretty important part of your vehicle. And if you have a fully electric vehicle, what are you reading this article for? This doesn’t concern you! And you definitely don't need to worry about needing a replacement. We humans drink through straws all the time (and let’s hope they’re reusable; save the turtles, people). Think of the pump as your car’s straw. When you start your car, the fuel pump moves fuel from the fuel tank, where it’s located, to the fuel system. The fuel then combusts, and it’s this combustion that starts the car and keeps it running. And that’s it. That’s literally it. It pumps fuel, so that your engine can use it, so that your car can drive. It’s that important, and also that simple. If only everything in life was like that, am I right? Now, fuel pumps usually have a pretty long lifespan, but occasionally the wear and tear can cause it to die. And then it will need to be replaced. And while replacing a fuel pump is actually a pretty simple task, getting to it can be pretty difficult. Translation: I don’t care how good that do-it-yourself project you did last weekend turned out. Save this one for the pros.

Symptoms of a failing Fuel Pump

Weird sounds

Whining coming from the fuel tank can be an indication that the pump is starting to die. So, here’s a pretty good lesson to remember: Nobody likes whining. You don’t like it when your car does it. And your friends and family don’t like it when you do it. Try to remember that. In general, weird sounds from your car are never a good sign, and you should always listen to them.

Diminished engine performance

There might be a loss of power if the vehicle's fuel line pump is unable to provide sufficient amount of fuel to the engine. Also, if the fuel delivery issue is more erratic, you might experience surging or sputtering. A less noticeable issue can be a decrease in gas mileage. You also may notice your car surging or running rough. If this is the case, you might need to replace your vehicle's fuel tank pump.

Difficulty starting

Okay, here’s something I hopefully don’t need to tell you: If your car is having a hard time turning on, something might be wrong. Who knew, right? If the fuel pump is no longer able to supply the required amount of fuel to the engine, your car will begin to show signs of struggling to start. It may take a few seconds longer than it usually does, or it might require a few attempts to get the thing to turn on. If you keep ignoring the issue, you’ll eventually end up with a vehicle that simply won’t start. If this is the case, consider getting a replacement fuel system. If this is the case, consider a fuel pump replacement.

Misfiring

Ahh, misfiring. Many different things can cause misfiring, including a fuel pump that called in sick to work. If the engine isn’t getting enough fuel, then it won’t have the correct air to fuel ratio in the combustion chamber. This can lead to inadequate and unsuccessful combustion, which often results in misfiring.

Driving a car with a busted fuel pump can result in all of the symptoms listed above. Including the one about your car not starting. So, unless you want to just let your car sit there, you probably want to get a fuel pump replacement asap.
