Q: Fuel pump not working

asked by on January 25, 2016

My fuel pump stopped working.

Hello there. I suggest having the pressure checked with a fuel pressure tool. That will help you know for sure if the pump is or isn’t at fault. If you need further assistance, I recommend you have a mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, inspect for possible fuel problems and replace any damaged parts.
