The purpose of the fuel pump is to pump fuel from the vehicle’s gas tank to the engine. If it is not doing this job effectively, the engine may not be getting enough fuel, potentially resulting in an engine that runs either poorly or not at all.

A fuel pump is a mechanically or electrically controlled mechanism that sends fuel from the gas tank through the fuel filter to the fuel rail. Fuel pumps come in various types in accordance with diverse automobiles.
Fuel pumps can broadly be categorized into two categories, namely mechanical fuel pumps and electric fuel pumps. Our professionals have classified the various types of fuel pumps for you:
Mechanical fuel pump
It uses positive displacement with a plunger or a diaphragm in a cyclical action. As far as its working is concerned, the mechanical fuel pump draws in fuel, traps it and then moves it toward the carb and engine, repeating the process.
Electric fuel pumps
It works on the principle of the fuel-injection system. It is used on modern vehicle engines with high-pressure requirements. There is a wide range of electric fuel pumps such as In-tank, Inline, Rotary Vane and Gerotor.
Fuel pumps do not come under the regular maintenance schedule of your automobile. They are usually replaced upon failure. If you experience any of the below-mentioned faults or problems in your fuel pumps in Whitehorse, it’s time to call for professional help.
The car won’t start: In cases of a fuel pump fault, it fails to send fuel to the engine. However, we should also keep in mind that it can also be due to insufficient fuel.
The sputtering: If your vehicle starts but is running rough and dies after some time, then it is a sign that the engine might not be getting enough fuel.
Car dies under heavy load: Due to hard-driving or exhaling extra weights, you can experience a power cut. It is due to the strain on the fuel pump.
Inconsistent/unintended acceleration: When the amount of fuel isn’t properly regulated by the fuel pump, your car could accelerate without input due to an overage of fuel.
Decreased fuel efficiency: If you notice that your vehicle is suddenly consuming more gas than usual, it can be indicative of a damaged fuel pump.
Increased engine temperature: When the supply of fuel is insufficient to the engine, it could be overstressed, causing an irregular rise in the temperature of the engine.
