Grzegorz is a very experienced and knowledgeable mechanic. He did an excellent job on my fuel pump/filter replacement.

I'm very appreciative of his help and I would recommend Grzegorz without hesitation.

After moving to a new city I needed a new mechanic. I was set up with Steven who came to a dealership to meet me and inspect a used Mercades I was interested in. He was very genuine about his review of the car along with being highly experienced. It seemed like he truly cared about me and my purchase unlike past experiences. Steven was just an overall nice guy who I knew I could trust off the bat and I will continue to use him from YourMechanic in the future. Thanks for making this completely hassle free and providing a great report of my new cars health.

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.
