A fuel pump in your car’s main job is to send gas or diesel from the fuel tank to the injectors. The fuel pump must send enough fuel and at the right pressure to ensure the engine runs smoothly at all times. Fuel pumps don’t have a specific timeframe in which they need to be replaced. As your mileage goes up, fuel pump replacement is more common. If you continuously drive with your fuel tank on low, or drive with clogged fuel filters, strain will be placed on the fuel pump shortening its longevity. You may wonder, how much does a fuel pump replacement cost? We will answer that question by looking at the average fuel pump replacement cost for all vehicles in general.

It’s important to keep track of the coverage on your car. New Fords come with a bumper-to-bumper/exclusionary warranty of 3 years or 36, 000 miles whichever comes first. They also come with a powertrain warranty of 5 years or 60, 000 miles, whichever comes first. If you have a Ford F-150, 2018 model, your factory warranty expires in 2022. You will need to evaluate what to do next. We recommend you invest in a Ford Vehicle Service Contract with us. An extended warranty is interchangeable with a vehicle service contract, but they are not the same. A vehicle service contract takes effect normally after your factory warranty expires. It covers certain components of your car and is optional. It is offered to you by third-party warranty providers on Chaiz. You can save thousands of dollars on repair bills with coverage in place. Your fuel pump replacement cost should be covered by a vehicle service contract with Chaiz.
There are three types of coverage options offered on Chaiz.
Type 1: Bumper-to-bumper plan/ exclusionary plan- this is the most comprehensive and most expensive plan brought to you by Chaiz. This plan covers most of the important components of your car between your front and back bumper.
Type 2: Powertrain Plus plan- this plan is slightly less comprehensive than type 1 and is also slightly less expensive.
Type 3: Powertrain plan- this is the least comprehensive option but is also the most affordable. It covers some of the main components of the car but is less comprehensive than Type 1.
