Fuel Pump Strainers
What is a Fuel Pump Strainer?
A Fuel Pump Strainer is a an inexpensive yet essential part of the fuel delivery system. Small particles or dirt within the fuel tank can cause fuel pumps to fail. In order to make use of as much fuel as possible in the tank the fuel pump is positioned as low as possible. This leaves the fuel pump vulnerable to sediment that may be at the bottom of the fuel tank. The fuel pump strainer can trap the particles and prevent them from entering the fuel pump.
When replacing a fuel pump, the strainer must also be replaced. Failure to do this will void the warranty on the fuel pump.
