Fuel Pump Warning Signs

Your vehicle's fuel pump has an important job in pumping fuel from the gas tank to the engine. A fuel pump malfunction results in a car that isn't operational. It's important to know the warning signs and to address them before the unthinkable happens.

One sign that your fuel pump may be failing is sputtering while driving at a high consistent speed. If the vehicle sputters, because the pump is struggling to supply fuel at the right pressure, then returns to normal, it could be a sign of pump failure.

A vehicle running at a hotter-than-normal temperature could be an indicator of a failing pump. It the temperature rises and the car stalls out, it could indicate fuel pump problems.
