The Signs You May Need a New Fuel Pump

A failing fuel pump can be the cause for a variety of troubles. The difficulty comes from the fact that the symptoms of a bad fuel pump match the symptoms of other problems that are more common.

A weakening fuel pump will cause your car's engine to lose fuel pressure at high speeds. If you notice sputtering or misfires on the freeway but not when idling or driving slow, it could be the fuel pump. The opposite can happen as well. The fuel pump can malfunction and deliver too much fuel to the engine. This causes "surging," or sudden increases in the engine's speed.

If you suspect your vehicle's fuel pump may be failing, stop by our service department in Great Falls, MT for an inspection. Here at Honda of Great Falls, we have certified technicians who can diagnose the problem and make any repairs that may be needed.
