As you drive in Oakland, CA, your vehicle's fuel pump is the component that sends gas to your engine. When the pump goes bad, it can cause other problems; that's why it's a good idea to watch for warning signs and seek service early.

One of the most obvious signs of a bad fuel pump is a drop in fuel economy. Are you filling up more than usual without changing your habits? That can be because the pump's relief valve is allowing too much gas to flow.

When you're driving, look at your temperature readout. If you notice a pattern where the heat spikes and the engine stalls, the fuel pump is often to blame. Usually, the issue is with the motor that operates the pump. Are you seeing any of these signs? Book a service appointment at Honda of Oakland today to get them taken care of.
