The fuel pump works to deliver fuel from gas tank to engine, and when it starts to break down, it can cause damage to your vehicle and even leave you stranded. Our team here at Acura of Laurel understands the importance of knowing the signs so that you can get your car in for repairs before it gets too serious.

If you're cruising down the highway and feel your engine sputter, this can be a sign that your fuel pump is having issues with maintaining a proper fuel pressure. This will typically happen at high speeds and goes back and forth between regular performance and sputtering.

Another sign is if you feel your car start to accelerate without pressing down more on the gas pedal. This can be caused by the fuel pump motor experiencing irregular resistance and a sign to bring your car in.
