There are two types of fuel pumps are used in automobiles; mechanical and electric. All fuel injected cars today use electric fuel pumps, while most carbureted cars use mechanical fuel pumps. Mechanical fuel pumps are diaphragm pumps, mounted on the engine and operated by an eccentric cam usually on the camshaft. A rocker arm attached to the eccentric moves up and down flexing the diaphragm and pumping the fuel to the engine. Because electric pumps do not depend on an eccentric for operation, they can be located anywhere on the vehicle. In fact they work best when located near the fuel tank.
The automotive fuel system is designed to operate with the rest of the control system in the engine to reduce your auto’s emissions and ensure optimal performance during driving. If you believe there to be an issue or you smell gas immediately bring your vehicle into Park Muffler Radiator Brakes & Tires, Edmonton’s fuel pump service center for an inspection.
