One of the things we overheard all the time at the dealership I worked at was "what you need isn't covered", mostly with third party warranties, which are really just insurance contracts. They are rarely a good deal for car owners. As a side note, you have the right to cancel the contract, get a partial refund, then you can use that money for the repair.
Leak detection pumps are not a part of the drive train, just like the radio or wiper motor. The fault code will specify what is wrong with that system, and typically it's not a problem with the pump itself, although it could be. More commonly it's a leak in the evaporative emissions system, meaning a loose or cracked rubber hose, which would be a "small leak", or the "large leak" we're all familiar with caused by a loose gas cap.
The first thing to do is find out exactly what the fault code number is. If they didn't tell you, have the code(s) read at an auto parts store. Many of them will do that for you for free.
