What are the signs of a bad fuel pump?
A fuel pump is responsible for delivering fuel to the engine. If your engine sputters at high RPMs or you hear random misfires while cruising on the highway or the engine loses power while hauling or driving uphill, it’s highly likely that your fuel pump is not working properly. If the fault is extreme, the engine will cease to start at all.
What does a fuel pump do?
Fuel pumps are usually located inside the fuel tank. The sole purpose of a fuel pump is to take fuel from the tank and pump it across the fuel line, all the way to the engine. The pump generates the required pressure to make sure the fuel reaches the injectors as per the demand. Modern fuel pumps are electric and usually last longer than their mechanical counterparts.
How does a car act when the fuel pump is going out?
One of the classic signs is a noticeable decrease in fuel efficiency or acceleration, depending on in which direction the problem is headed. If the fuel pump is unable to live up to the demand, the engine will run lean and struggle to move the vehicle forward. In the worst case, your car won’t start. If you think your fuel pump is failing, but your car has clocked only 50-60k miles, you might want to look for the problem somewhere else because fuel pumps can handle the grind way beyond 100,000 miles.
How much does it cost to replace a fuel pump?
Depending on your vehicle’s model and make, replacing a fuel pump can set you back by $260 – $1009. The major cost component is the part itself, whereas the labor charges are reasonable. When it comes to replacing a fuel pump, you can go with aftermarket alternatives as well, which make more sense for a relatively old car.
