What is a Fuel Pump
A fuel pump is an integral part of the fuel system which pumps fuel from the fuel tank to the engine. Your vehicle will not run without a working fuel pump.
If your vehicle loses power while accelerating, the engine sputters, or is hard to start your fuel pump may not be working correctly. Fuel pumps do wear out and require periodic replacement.
Fuel Pump Failure Causes
Two common Fuel pump failure causes are running your fuel tank at low fuel level, and not replacing the fuel filter.
When you operate your vehicle with low fuel level the fuel pump can overheat and prematurely fail. The fuel acts as coolant for the fuel pump. Fuel tanks are usually under the rear of the vehicle. The heat reflected from hot pavement quickly heats smaller amount of fuel in the tank which provides less cooling for the pump. Also, low fuel levels cause fuel to slosh around more which does not allow fuel contaminants to settle out of the fuel. This causes the fuel filter to become plugged sooner.
A plugged fuel filter places a high load on the fuel pump as it works harder to deliver fuel to the engine. The pump is constantly overloaded and eventually fails. You should do a fuel filter replacement once per year to prevent premature fuel pump repair.
Fuel pump failure can cause a safety risk when your vehicle stalls unexpectedly. And a fuel pump failure can happen with no warning.
