Signs Your Fuel System Needs Service

Would you rather keep up with regular maintenance or deal with more serious and possibly costly repairs? That's an easy answer for most vehicle owners. Even so, some drivers forget or put off taking care of things like fuel system service.

One sign your fuel system needs checking is engine sputtering. While consistently driving at higher speeds, the car suddenly sputters, but it quickly returns to regular performance. This could indicate a fuel pump problem. Instead of sputtering, maybe your car surges forward on its own. Suddenly picking up speed, even though you don't increase pressure on the gas pedal, indicates irregular resistance in the fuel pump motor. Another sign of fuel pump issues is when the heat rises on the temperature gauge and the vehicle stalls.
