Honda Fuel Pump Assembly Parts
Honda Fuel Pumps and Replacements
When buying a car such as a Honda Accord, or any other type of car for that matter, some of the questions you might ask, are about the engine type and the fuel tank capacity. This helps you to calculate how fuel-efficient a car is and what the cost of filling up might be. The hardcore data types might even ask about the transmission, cylinders, horsepower, cam type and weight as these also contribute toward fuel economy and engine performance.
No matter what your inclination toward information, when filling up, it is important to know the car’s engine type. Your car will work with either gas or diesel. You also need to know what octane to use and if you want to get the maximum fuel efficiency, you should know the speed you need to drive. Nevertheless, all these factors have one denominator in common; the fuel pump. The Honda fuel pump might not sound like an important part of a car, but it is essential if you want to drive anywhere in your vehicle.
A fuel pump, be it a Honda fuel pump or otherwise, is a vital component to any vehicle that uses an internal combustion engine. Some vintage cars and motor cycles do not have a fuel pump and rely on gravity to feed fuel from the fuel tank. However, in vehicles where gravity is not used, the fuel must be pumped from the fuel tank to the engine. And, the fuel must be delivered under a low pressure to the carburetor. Where a fuel injection system is used, the fuel must be propelled by a fuel pump with high pressure.
Often, an engine that works with a carburetor use a low-pressure mechanical pump, mounted on the outside of the fuel tank. On the other hand, fuel injected engines use electrical pumps mounted inside the fuel tank. A Honda fuel pump, or any other make of fuel pump, cannot work on its own and needs other components to do the job. In a Honda, this is known as a Honda Fuel Pump Assembly. The assembly consists of an electric pump, a cylindrical plastic housing, a spring-loaded frame, and a fuel gauge sender. These components have to be made out of premium materials because they need to be able to withstand wear and tear and exposure to harsh elements.
If you experience signs such as the vehicle losing power while accelerating, a sudden loss of power when the car is under stress, an engine that shutters at high speed, surging, or an engine that simply does not want to start, it might be an indication that your Honda fuel pump needs replacement. If you are in the market of replacing your fuel pump, you’ve come to the right place.
