Today’s auto technicians are highly trained and skilled individuals who are proficient in vehicles’ computerized components and electrical circuitry as well as knowledgeable about all vehicle systems and subsystems.

For example, fuel pumps have become very sophisticated, as seen in computer-controlled electric fuel pump. A long list of item failures can prevent the electric fuel pump from operating, requiring a skilled technician to locate and correct such a problem.


The automotive fuel pump has a singular function — to move the fuel from the fuel tank to the engine. There are two types of fuel pumps: mechanical and electrical. The older style mechanical pump supports fuel delivery to a carburetor-operated fuel system, whereas most electric fuel pumps support fuel injection systems. Each pump’s mission is similar, but their design and method of operation differs considerably. In either case, the pump must be capable of maintaining a constant pressure and volume as required by the engine to operate efficiently.


Fuel injection is a much more efficient method of introducing fuel into the cylinders of an engine versus carburetors. Carburetors, being centrally located on the intake manifold, supply more fuel to the closest cylinders than to those farthest away.
