The fuel pump's job is to deliver fuel to the injectors at the needed pressure, usually between 35 and 80 pounds per square inch (psi). If it fails to deliver the fuel at the necessary pressure and volume, the engine may consequently run poorly, stall, or even refuse to start, which makes immediate repair necessary. However, as experienced technicians know, the fix does not necessarily involve fuel-pump replacement. First, it makes sense to check the fuel pump relay, the fuse, wiring in the fuel-pump circuit, the fuel filter, fuel line, or the fuel pressure regulator for problems. This conscientious attention to detail can avert a costly repair. In some cases, there may simply be no gas in the tank.

A faulty fuel pump is just one of the many reasons your car may be running poorly. Our ASE-certified technicians have the experience and training necessary to track down the problem and fix it the first time, whether it's a fuel pump or a faulty sensor. In addition, we can provide the regular care that can prevent your fuel pump from failing in the first place.
