Malfunctioning fuel pumps can lead to serious problems for your performance car. The fuel pump is an essential part of any vehicle, it pumps fuel from the gas tank to the engine. Malfunctioning fuel pumps will stop your car working to its full potential. Therefore, it is very important to ensure your fuel pump is performing properly and safely.
There are a few symptoms of malfunctioning fuel pumps for performance cars. Here are some potential indicators of malfunctioning fuel pumps. Please note that these symptoms could also be for other issues in your vehicle.
1. Your Car Engine Sputters on the open road
If you experience your car jerking on the highway and then it returns back to regular performance, there could be something wrong with your fuel pump. A fuel pump which is not working properly cannot supply a constant amount of fuel to the engine. This will result in a loss in pressure which causes the engine to sputter.
2. Your Fuel Consumption changes drastically
If you notice that your car has been consuming more fuel than normal. There could be an issue with your fuel pump. Fuel pumps have a release value which if not working properly can result in more fuel going into the engine.
3. Sudden Surges in your Vehicles Performance
In some cases you may find that the performance of your vehicle suddenly surges. An example could include sudden accelerating by your car. This can occur when the fuel pump cannot maintain the right levels of pressure. This causes a sudden surge when the fuel pump attempts to increase the pressure rapidly.
