The fuel pump in your vehicle has a sole purpose, and that is to take fuel from the tank and deliver it to the engine, according to the demand. If the fuel pump is working properly, then the car will run smoothly. However, it may need to be replaced if it’s faulty, leaking or it may be found to be defective while performing a basic safety inspection or during car diagnostics when the check engine light comes on. All Tune & Lube La Habra is prepared to do fuel pump replacements, and while doing so, we will check that the filters, fuel pickups, fuel pump relays and electrical connectors are also in good condition. The reason we do this is because sometimes the same symptoms of defective fuel pumps are found when there’s a clogged fuel filter.
At All Tune & Lube La Habra, we recommend you learn to recognize the symptoms of a fuel pump that needs to be replaced. If your car hesitates to start or loses power when accelerating or the check engine light comes on, it’s possible that your fuel pump needs to be replaced. One suggestion All Tune and Lube La Habra makes to clients is to keep at least a quarter tank of gas in your car at all times, because low fuel levels makes the fuel pump work harder and it can make it fail sooner. Recognizing common symptoms of problems with your car or its engine can help you know when to take it in to the mechanic sooner.
If your fuel pump needs to be replaced or you’re experiencing any other problem with your car, please contact All Tune and Lube La Habra today! Simply call All Tune and Lube La Habra at 714-871-4144 if you have any concerns about your vehicle.
