Whether you're a new do-it-yourselfer or a seasoned professional, safety should always be a priority. Over time, we tend to get comfortable and fall away from basic safety practices if we're not careful. Here's a refresher to help keep you, your colleagues, and your vehicle safe.
Most vehicles with fuel injection utilize an electric fuel pump located in the fuel tank to supply sufficient volume and pressure to the injectors. Fuel is under pressure as it enters the fuel injector. The injector is a solenoid activated by the powertrain control module (PCM).
As winter approaches, it’s good to note that one of the leading causes of fuel pump failure is running on a low fuel tank, especially in cold weather. Frequent driving with a low fuel level can starve the pump for lubrication and cooling by plugging up the strainer with contaminants inside the tank, which can lead to accelerated wear or even pump damage.
