WHAT DOES THE FUEL PUMP DO EXACTLY?
Located in the fuel tank, the fuel pump, which nowadays
is usually electric, simply pumps fuel from your gasoline tank to your engine.
The pump creates pressure in the fuel lines that pushes the gasoline to the
engine. Unused fuel is returned to the fuel tank. In most cars the fuel pump
delivers a constant flow of gasoline to the engine. When the flow becomes less
constant, your car starts acting sluggish or just stops acting altogether.
WHAT CAUSES THE FUEL
PUMP TO FAIL?
Fuel pumps can fail for a number of reasons. Most
commonly because of contamination, overheating and over time, the gears in your
fuel pump wear out.
ANYTHING I CAN DO TO HELP?
Try not to run your car on a low gas tank. On most
vehicles, 10-15 times the amount of fuel your fuel pump sends to your engine
gets sent back to your tank. This help cools down your fuel. By running on a low
tank, the fuel in your tank can overheat or even run dry.
