Replacement Fuel Pump
Most modern cars, trucks, and SUVs use electronic fuel injection. The electric fuel pump is often located in the tank for efficiency and safety purposes. With the fuel pump situated in the tank, it is typically intended to be a non-serviceable item and designed to last the life of the vehicle (an average of 100,000 miles or 10 years). However, regardless of how many miles are on the vehicle or how many years old it is, fuel pumps can suffer damage due to the various qualities of the fuel itself. In some regions, petroleum-based fuel may have higher or lower amounts of ethanol, sulfur, and other impurities. Also, the age of the fuel storage tanks in gas stations can also add contaminants and, thus, shorten the lifespan of your vehicle’s fuel pump. When a fuel pump is failing or has failed completely, some car and truck owners are quick to junk the whole car in fear of the repair and replacement cost. It is an involved job, but not as difficult or as time-consuming as an engine or transmission repair. Certain serious driveability problems can be solved with a brand new fuel pump.
