Identifying Fuel System Issues Early Can Prevent Problems

In order for your engine to continue to hum along, it needs a steady supply of fuel. Your vehicle fuel delivery system is the network of components that makes this happen.

Like all of your vehicle systems, the fuel delivery system parts naturally deteriorate as time passes by. These parts play vital roles in the overall operation of your car, and if they unexpectedly fail the consequences can be expensive. Luckily, it is easy to avoid this fate by keeping an eye out for telltale signs of impending component failure. Some common warning signs include:

  • Odd Noises From the Gas Tank: Many modern vehicles have electric fuel pumps that are located in gas tanks. If you detect high, whining noises when you start your vehicle, this could indicate impending problems.
  • Power Loss: Engine stuttering or hesitating during acceleration may indicate faulty fuel pumps or filters.

These symptoms represent just the tip of the symptom iceberg. Many issues are hard to diagnose without the kind professional equipment and knowledge that we provide at our location in Frankfort. Our certified and dedicated fuel system technicians can give your system a head-to-toe inspection and repair or replace any troubled components.
