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.
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.
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.
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.Get a Quote 1-Year | 12,000-Mile Warranty
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.
