Fuel Pump Best Sellers! Use Shop By Vehicle Above To Find Yours!
Your fuel pump is one of those parts you rely upon daily-but may just think about on an occasional basis. The fuel pump, as the name suggests, moves fuel from the tank to the engine. An improperly installed or malfunctioning fuel pump can have disastrous consequences, however, knowing the common symptoms of a malfunctioning fuel pump will make sure you avoid problems!
If you frequently lose power when navigating inclines, it might be time for a fuel pump replacement. Given the nature of fuel pumps and their role in your vehicle, the two most common symptoms of a malfunctioning pump are overheating and stalling. A faulty pump can't provide the additional gas the car needs to go ahead without losing speed, due to an inability to supply the engine with a steady supply of gas. If your pump becomes overheated within the first few minutes of being on-it's time for a replacement.
A faulty pump might also show signs of intermittent breakdown; meaning it will work for around a half-hour or so before shutting off. Allowing the vehicle to remain idle for around 30 minutes will help the engine cool, and the pump function normally. This is, however, only a stop-gap solution, because the pump will stop functioning properly once it reheats.
Sounds are some of the strongest signals your vehicle can offer. If you frequently hear a screeching or screaming sound when starting your vehicle, a shoddy pump might be the culprit. Perhaps your symptoms are a stumbling problem on ignition, or an abrupt stopping of your vehicle-both are caused by grainy particles entering the pump system and wreaking havoc.
Fuel Pump Replacements
Like most things car related, fuel pump replacement may vary on difficulty, depending on the design of the vehicle in question. Some vehicles use in-tank pumps, in which case access is sometimes as simple as folding back the trunk mat and removing a panel. Other models require that you drop the tank, which can be an exercise in tedium-especially with a full tank!
Additionally replacement pumps may not look exactly the same as the original, especially if you're replacing an older design with a newer, more efficient variety. BuyAutoParts.com has a wide selection of OEM fuel pumps for sale that are guaranteed to fit. If you're planning to hire a mechanic, it's still a smart choice to purchase the parts yourself. This gives you more control over the cost of your automotive repairs.
Regardless of your make and model, our part selector will allow you to find fuel pumps that are certain to fit. We recommend buying an OEM or trusted name brand electric fuel pump rather than a cheap pump of unknown origins. Cheaper fuel pumps have a poor reputation for quality and durability, and may fail at low mileage. Lastly, fuel pumps are better when the assembly is replaced entirely, rather than just the pump itself.
