During World War II, Germany began equipping some of its fighter aircraft with direct fuel injection to prevent engine stall-out during high-speed aerial maneuvers. After World War II, domestic and import auto manufacturers discovered that their

The World of Fuel Pump Diagnosis

f in-tank electric fuel pumps returned for warranty aren’t truly defective. Unfortunately, many amateur and professional technicians assume that, because they can’t hear the typical whining noise that a good fuel pump makes when the ignition is first turned on, the fuel pump itself is to blame.

Older carbureted vehicles used an engine-mounted, low-pressure mechanical pump. Most EFI fuel pumps operate at 35 to 85 PSI or higher. Designs vary and include single- or double-vane, roller-vane, turbine or gerotor

Understanding Mass Air Flow Issues

If you understand that a defective mass air flow (MAF) sensor can cause an extremely lean condition by underestimating the amount of air flowing into the engine, then you can understand how a defective MAF sensor can be mistaken for a defective fuel pump assembly.
