The main objective of your fuel pump is to send fuel from its tank to the injectors, thus creating sufficient pressure to provide the precise amount of fuel to its desired location. You have a very high probability of disturbing the calibration of your fuel system with an ineffective fuel pump. A drained fuel pump could cause your engine to idle poorly, it could cause a hesitation during acceleration or loss of power, or just simply not provide enough fuel to your engine. A weak fuel pump could also create an increase in hydrocarbon emissions, and you may need to have an emissions test conducted.
The fuel injector converts liquid gas, fed by the fuel pumps into the engine, to a fine mist form that can be ignited and burned easily. How ever many cylinders your engine has is the amount of fuel injectors your vehicle has. The fuel injectors transfer the gas, in liquid form, to the engine’s cylinders. During the process, the fuel is converted into a mist form and sprayed onto the cylinders so it can burn quickly and efficiently.
