Why many people are needlessly incurring very expensive repairs and how you can avoid them
Most vehicles today have fuel pumps located inside the gas tank, one very important aspect to that, believe it or not, is that it is intended for the fuel in the tank to help keep the pump cool during operation. When the fuel level gets to a certain point and the fuel is not cooling it, the pump overheats and can cause it to fail.
We offer see this in cars driven by teens, they don't have enough money to keep the fuel level up in their cars. We often see a jump in fuel pump failures when the price of gas goes higher. Most fuel pumps are very expensive. It's not uncommon to see prices that are in the $500-$1,500 range and higher on some models.
