Fuel pumps are complicated components, but buying one doesn't have to be! At HHP, we take the risk out of buying parts!

With the many moving parts involved in your diesel fuel pump, there are a lot of opportunities for failure. The main culprit behind these failures is poor quality or contaminated diesel fuel. Clean diesel fuel and proper fuel system maintenance are critical to keeping your diesel engine running at its peak. A lack of proper fuel system maintenance and the use of contaminated diesel fuel can wreak havoc on all the sensitive fuel system components, leading to expensive repair costs.

So, how do you know if your fuel pump is behind your diesel engine trouble? Some common symptoms include:

  • Rough Running

  • Hard Starting

  • Engine Misfires

  • Engine Stalls

  • Overall Loss of Engine Power

  • Excessive Exhaust Smoke

  • Unusual Engine Noises
