FUEL PUMP / FILTER IN FUEL TANK

2001 Honda City • 4 cylinder 2WD Automatic • 80,000 miles

Hi,

My car is not giving the right fuel pressure, my mechanic has advised me to get the fuel tank opened and install new pump.

problem I get is that sometimes car wont start at all and sometimes it does not cause any problems and starts smoothly for several days.

please advise if the pump to be replaced or there could be any electrical problem

It was manually checked sometime when I turn off the car engine the fuel level automatically rises in the fuel guage and as soon as I start the car the level drops to the actual reading.

I hv alternate fuel system also installed that is CNS compressed natural gas, when car does not start on petrol then I had to change the setting to start on CNG, it starts!

Which confirms that the fuel (petrol) pressure is low or not at all present

so any electrical fault or I need to open the fuel tank for service along with installation of new pump which is expensive

You have to confirm the fuel pump is defective by checking its actual fuel pressure with a fuel pressure gauge
