Your Toyota vehicle came from the factory with a fuel pump already in place. It may only do one thing, but it's an important role – and it does it well. It pulls gas from the fuel tank and sends it to the engine. That's where it mixes with oxygen, gets ignited, and produces the combustion your motor needs to move you down the road.
How Fuel Pumps Work
The fuel pump draws the gas out of the tank and sends it through fuel lines into the fuel rail. Then fuel injectors spray the fuel into your engine's cylinders. Depending on your model's age, it may have a fuel pump that's assisted by a DC motor. Older models don't have that motor, but instead feature a mechanical fuel pump that depends on the engine to power the suction that moves the fuel.
How to Identify Fuel Pump Issues
Sadly, even the highest quality fuel pump can start to go bad. Signs of failure include:
- Diminished fuel efficiency
- Reduced engine performance
- You hear a squealing noise coming from your engine
- You're unable to start your Toyota at all
