With all of the different components that allow your car’s fuel system to function, it can become very hard to keep up with them all. Having malfunctioning components in your fuel system can lead to a variety of issues that may result in your car being unusable. Among the most important parts of a car’s fuel system is the fuel pump, which transports the gas in the tank to the parts of the engine that need it. Every time you turn the key of your car and hear that humming noise, it means that the fuel pump is working and doing the job it was intended for.

The fuel pump on your car is designed to last for about 50,000 miles but can last much longer than that. Developing certain habits can help you to extend the life of your fuel pump. Not letting the fuel level get below ¼ of a tank can help to reduce the strain that is put on the pump. For the most part, the fuel pump is not inspected or even checked out until there are issues with it. Having a professional take a look at your car when issues with the fuel system arise can save you a lot of time and trouble.

When the fuel pump on your vehicle begins to show signs of repair, you will have to act quickly to avoid the instability that this type of issue can bring to your vehicle. Replacing the fuel pump is not easy and will need to be handled by a professional. Have a professional mechanic inspect and replace the damaged part immediately so that no further problems arise

There are a number of warning signs that you will notice when your fuel pump is in need of replacement and here are some of them:

  • The vehicle hesitates when trying to start
  • The car feels like it is surging when trying to accelerate
  • There is a whining noise when operating the vehicle
  • The Check Engine Light is on

When these types of warning signs begin to surface, you will need to track down the right professionals to handle your repairs. Attempting to replace your own fuel pump can lead to a number of negative consequences that can further the damages done.
