Fuel Pump Failure

Among other things, an engine’s performance strongly depends on a fuel-injection system that is properly pressurized. The vehicle’s fuel pump, usually located near the gas tank, plays a major role in this effort. The injection system meters fuel through the injectors and into the engine. Its failure to do so can create a variety of problems, including causing hard starting in the morning as well as low power and stalling while underway. To diagnose fuel pump problems, an auto technician can attach a fuel-pressure gauge to the fuel pressure test port on the fuel rail. For obvious reasons, it is best to attend to this problem immediately, and have it diagnosed and corrected before it leaves the driver stranded.

HINT: If a fuel pump needs to be replaced, it is best to replace the fuel-pump relay at the same time.
