The fuel pump’s main job is to supply the fuel at the necessary pressure to the fuel injectors or carburetor. The pressure and volume has to remain constant. Some cars have two pumps. If the car’s fuel pump stops working the fuel has no way to reach the engine; therefore the car stalls, just as it would if it ran out of gas. Occasionally, the pump may warn you it needs to be replaced by overheating and not working for 20 min or so until the fuel pump has a chance to cool down and start working again.
