High-Pressure GDI Fuel Pumps

When solving a fuel pump issue, the scan tool is your best friend.

The most common diagnostic procedures for fuel pumps in the past were analog and hands-on, and most fuel pump-related problems could be solved with a pressure gauge and voltmeter. Today, the scan tool is quickly becoming the most important tool when diagnosing a fuel supply problem.

On early vehicles, the fuel pump was energized when the key was turned on and a vacuum-operated diaphragm regulated fuel pressure at the engine. Today, input from at least two modules and various sensors are required for a fuel pump to operate. This simplifies diagnostics and can save you from unnecessarily dropping a fuel tank.
