Signs of a Malfunctioning Fuel System

Vital to your car's fuel system is the fuel pump. Even though you can't see it, you should pay attention to it, especially if your vehicle is showing signs that the fuel pump is malfunctioning.

Sputtering engines aren't normal. If yours sputters during consistently faster speeds but immediately returns to normal, consider the fuel pump. Surging is also a problem. When the car suddenly surges forward during normal drives, as if you pressed the gas, the fuel pump motor might have irregular resistance. One big sign of fuel pump problems is power loss. This happens when you're going uphill or hauling a heavy load, which stresses the vehicle. A weak fuel pump can't handle the car's fuel demands, which leads it the power loss.

Don't struggle to figure out if your fuel system is failing. Visit Dorsch Kia to schedule a service appointment.
