Why do Fuel Pumps Fail?
Fuel pumps run constantly, so after many years of service they can experience wear in the armature bushings, brushes and commutator. Pump vanes, rollers or gears can also wear causing a gradual loss of pressure and flow.
Fuel pump repair performed by Casey Automotive keeps this critical component working in your vehicle.
Accelerated wear may also occur if sediment or rust gets past the inlet filter sock. In some instances, a pump will fail because contaminants entered the pump and jammed it, causing the motor to overheat and burn out.
Your fuel pump relies on fuel passing through it for lubrication and cooling. Consequently, fuel starvation can be another factor that accelerates wear and may even cause pump damage under certain operating conditions. When it comes to fuel pump repair, your friends at Casey Automotive will diagnosis and repair as required.
