How long does a fuel pump last?
Lately my car has been sputtering when I press the accelerator which is making my drive a little jerky. I’m not sure what the problem is, but maybe it’s time to replace my car’s fuel pump? How long will a fuel pump typically last?
Answer provided by
Fuel pumps are meant to last around 100,000 miles, but most people never have to replace their fuel pumps. They are typically built to last since they are positioned in a hard-to-access place within your fuel tank.
If your car has surpassed 100,000 miles and you’re feeling that sputtering jerkiness often, your fuel pump may be nearing the end of its lifespan. A fuel pump replacement could have you face to face with a three to four-figure charge.
