  • The pump is overheated

After operating for a while, the fuel level in the tank will gradually decrease. If the fuel level is too low, the fuel pump will not be cooled sufficiently and will overheat. This can easily cause the fuel pump to be damaged and the check engine light will not be on.

  • The ability to pump gasoline is weakened

When checking in the port of loading in the engine compartment, if you feel that the gas pressure is lower than normal, it is possible that your petrol pump has a problem in the pipeline or is weakening. This is also the reason why your pet does not work "smoothly".

  • There is no noise in the gas tank when starting

When starting the car (the ignition is turned ON), if there is no noise coming from the fuel tank area, your car may have the following damage: Damaged fuel pump, A some wiring, the power relay has a problem.

The performance of the fuel pump is also significantly reduced from contamination.

  • Vehicles with sudden signs of stalling

Step 2: Use a pressure gauge to check the operation of the petrol pump

  • Pressure gauges are often sold at automotive parts stores. Pressure gauge is used to check the operation of the petrol pump when the vehicle is started.
  • Use the user guide to attach the pressure gauge to the petrol pump test connector (because each meter has a different head, each vehicle also has a different pump position).
  • Run the engine and check the pressure on the meter. If the pressure varies with engine speed, the petrol pump works well. In contrast, petrol pumps are having problems and need to be replaced.
