How Long Does a Vacuum Pump Last?

Your car’s engine is a very complex piece of machinery. In order for it to function properly, there are a number of different components that will have to work together. Among the most important aspects of an engine is the vacuum power that it has. The vacuum power that the engine produces helps make a variety of different components work. In some instances, the vacuum that is produced by the engine will not be enough to power all of the components. This is when the vacuum pump on your engine will kick in to produce the additional power that is needed. Without this pump, you would experience a variety of different performance issues due to a lack of proper vacuum power.

The vacuum pump is designed to last a lifetime, but usually this will not happen due to the harsh conditions in which it has to operate. There are a variety of issues that can lead to the vacuum pump not working properly, which is why you will need to keep an eye peeled for warning signs. Usually, the vacuum pump will not be inspected during routine maintenance and will only be seen when there is a repair issue with it.

Many of the issues that you will face with a broken vacuum pump mimic issues related to vacuum hose leaks. The only way to narrow down what is causing your issues is by taking the time to get a professional to troubleshoot the system. A professional in the automotive repair business will have no problem finding out what is causing the vacuum related issues and then fixing them once they have been spotted. Allowing the professionals to perform this type of diagnostic work is the best way to get the right repairs done in a hurry without having to worry about doing the repairs yourself.

Here are some of the things that you will notice when your vacuum pump is going out.

  • The heater control on your vehicle doesn’t work
  • There is a hissing noise coming from under your hood
  • You are having issues using your brake pedal

Finding and fixing the repair issues with your vacuum pump can save you a lot of trouble down the road. Have a certified mechanic replace the failing vacuum pump to eliminate further problems with your vehicle.
