This has been an incredible experience using MyMechanic with Chris Almshouse. Chris was on time - actually a bit earlier which worked for me and Chris. He was thoughtful enough to explain everything he was doing to my transmission and described what he found while working on my car. He seems to have a deeper understanding of auto mechanics that you generally won't find in some of the brand named auto repair garages in the area. I will definitely use MyMechanic for my other car and for my Mercedes as well recommend MyMechanic on my Facebook account. Thank you very much! - D.Chaney

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.
