    Diesel Fuel Pump Repair, Cleaning, Testing, Replacement Hamilton

    About the diesel fuel pump:

    In diesel-powered cars, the diesel fuel pump (or diesel injection pump) is responsible for pressurising diesel fuel, then pumping it directly into the diesel fuel injectors, where it enters the cylinders of the diesel engine. Once the diesel fuel enters the engine, it is burnt and send out the exhaust. This gives your diesel vehicle the necessary power to run.

    More about how the fuel pump works >

    Effective fuel delivery from the diesel fuel pump is vital to correct engine performance. For this reason, it is important that the diesel fuel pump remains in good condition.

     

    Causes of diesel fuel pump issues:

    Blocked diesel engine fuel pump – Over time, the diesel engine fuel pump can become blocked. This is due to diesel fuel residue building up in the diesel fuel system. A blocked diesel fuel pump will need to be cleaned in order to allow diesel fuel to reach the diesel engine fuel injectors correctly.

    Leaking diesel engine fuel pump – Your diesel engine fuel pump’s design will feature several fuel seals which are made to keep the diesel fuel from leaking out. These seals can become brittle over time, losing effectiveness and causing the pump to leak internally or externally.

    Incorrect fuelling – Using low-quality fuel will cause your fuel pump to clog up more quickly. Accidentally filling your car, ute or van’s fuel tank with petrol instead of diesel fuel can also damage the fuel pump

     

    Symptoms of diesel fuel pump damage:

    Reduced diesel engine power – If not enough diesel fuel is getting to the engine due to a blockage, the diesel engine will not be able to run with as much power. You may struggle to reach higher speeds, drive up hills, tow a trailer or change into higher gears.

    Increased diesel fuel consumption – A leaking diesel fuel pump will result in an increased loss of fuel. This can cost a lot over time, meaning it is best to get the leak repaired as soon as possible.

    Diesel Fuel puddles – If you notice puddles of diesel fuel appearing under your car, van or ute engine it may be due to a leaking diesel engine fuel pump.
