I can't ask for anything more for the professional job that Jay had done on my car, replacing the front struts on my BMW. Very friendly from the start and without hesitation he answered all questions I have about the work to be done which boosted my confidence and resulted in an excellent job. Well done and thank you so much, Jay! Very glad I found YourMechanic to save me a fortune that dealer shop was charging me for the same work.

Before replacing the pump, first be sure that filters, fuel pickups, fuel pump relays, and electrical connectors are in good working order. A clogged fuel filter, for instance, can restrict flow and cause some of the same symptoms.
Your engine needs gas to run. The gas, however, is stored in the gas tank, not in the engine. When the engine needs more fuel, the fuel pump is responsible for pumping the gas from the tank to the engine, where it is used to power the vehicle. As the fuel pump deteriorates, it will be less and less efficient at pumping gas to the engine, and your vehicle will have a harder time running. When the fuel pump completely dies, it will be unable to pump gas to your engine, and your car won’t run.
