It doesn’t matter on the make or model, or even the type of vehicle you own in Houston, if your fuel pumps fail to work correctly or stops working, then your vehicle will stop working. In the case of it working intermittently or it is becoming blocked you can limp along, but it won’t have any performance,and the problem will only get worse.
Before you find out you need a mobile mechanic to make a fuel pump repair, here are some symptoms which show it has a problem:
- When you are cruising along at around 50mph, and your vehicle starts to sputter and jerk. This is the first sign your fuel pump has a problem.
- If you have a vehicle which is generally good o fuel consumption, and you find you are filling the tank more often, this is another sign you have a problem.
- If you hear a clicking sound when the motor is running, it means the fuel pump is spinning, but there is no fuel getting to it.
