Your engine is supplied with fuel through the efforts of your Chevy Malibu fuel pump. Located inside your gas tank, your Malibu fuel pump is a sturdy and rugged piece of equipment that is always on the go. Whenever your engine is running, your fuel pump is working.
Of course, since there are many moving parts on your Chevy Malibu fuel pump, it will generate quite a bit of heat. This is the reason your fuel pump is located inside your gas tank, because it uses the fuel supply to keep from overheating.
You may have heard that if your vehicle is fuel-injected, you should never let your gas tank run to empty. There are two reasons for this advice, and both of them have to do with your Malibu fuel pump. First, of course, is the overheating factor. You should strive to keep at least a quarter of a tank of gas in your vehicle at all times, so that your fuel pump has something to keep cool with. Second, over time the inside of your tank will begin to rust. These rust flakes, combined with the impurities that are not filtered out of the fuel at the gas station, form a layer of sludge at the bottom of your gas tank. When your Chevy Malibu fuel pump runs out of gasoline to pump, it will attempt to move the sludge through—which, of course, will damage your fuel pump and can harm your engine if it reaches your cylinders. Once your Malibu fuel pump stops working, you will have to replace it since it can’t be repaired.Feel free to browse our online catalogue for a great selection of fuel pumps at our excellent discount prices.
