Your fuel pump sends fuel from your fuel tank to your engine through a series of hoses, filters and lines. Sometimes fuel pumps fail – usually with little or no warning – and they need to be replaced. When this happens trust the ASE certified experts at Townhill Auto Repair Service in Bedford to get the job done. As a Napa certified repair center we use premium Napa products to provide you peace of mind driving backed by an excellent warranty
The majority of fuel pumps are inside the fuel tank, so getting to them can be a big deal meaning the fuel tank must be removed to access the fuel pump. Depending on the design of the vehicle and the condition of the fuel tank, it may need to be replaced along with the pump.
As you can imagine, that is pretty labor intensive. It’s also dangerous because that flammable fuel must be properly handled; so don’t try it at home.
There are some best practices your dealer trained service technician follows that you should know about. First, it’s recommended that the entire fuel pump assembly, including the electrical relay, be replaced; naturally with Napa premium parts. When one component has failed, another one is probably close to failure. With all of the labor involved, replacing associated components is a long term cost saver.

Another best practice is to always use a quality Napa replacement pump that matches or exceeds your original equipment specifications. So-called universal replacement pumps may spin at a different speed than the engine management computer is calibrated for. The mis-match could cause performance issues.
There are some things you can do to help your fuel pump last longer. First, don’t let your fuel tank run too low. When fuel is low, the pump has to work very hard to suck up enough fuel from the bottom. Also, the pump is submerged in fuel which cools and lubricates it. Re-fueling at a quarter tank or so will extend fuel pump life. Keeping your fuel system properly maintained by Town Hill Auto Repair Service in Bedford can also extend the life of your fuel system components. Consider a Valvoline fuel system treatments and Napa quality filters to help extend the life of your fuel system parts and give you a worry free driving experience.
Also, E85 gasoline can damage your fuel pump if you do not have a Flex-Fuel vehicle. The high level of ethanol can damage seals in your fuel system creating a fire hazard.
