A car's engine takes in air and fuel to produce power. It needs to get enough air and fuel mixture in order to run efficiently. This is the reason why a vehicle is outfitted with a fuel delivery system. The fuel delivery system or simply fuel system is in charge to store and supply fuel to the engine's cylinder chamber. This fuel is then vaporized and combusted, consequently producing the needed energy to operate the automobile. This is achieved through the help of the fuel system's components.
A car's fuel system, like your Kia fuel system, is composed of a fuel tank and a fuel tank cap, fuel line, fuel filter, carburetor, fuel gauge, emission controls and of course a fuel pump. The fuel pump, your Kia fuel pump is a key component of the fuel system. It is a device that is designed to serve three basic purposes: it has to provide sufficient fuel in order to furnish the engine requirements under all operating conditions, it needs to maintain an adequate amount of pressure in the line between the pump and the carburetor for the fuel to continue to boil, and lastly, it has to thwart vapor lock.
The fuel pump can be a mechanical or electrical type. Vehicles with fuel-injected systems have electric fuel pumps while mechanical fuel pump is used in carbureted automobiles. The mechanical fuel pump has a vacuum booster section which is operated by the pump's arm. This type of fuel pump can be found on the car's engine. Mechanical fuel pumps have a vacuum booster section which is operated by the pump's arm whereas electrical fuel pumps use a small turbine wheel-driven by a constant speed electric motor.
Convinced why it is considered a major component to a car's fuel system? So why do you keep on ignoring it? You take no notice of it because you believe that you have the best fuel pump that could stand through the test of time. In short, you don't even consider replacing it after some time. Note that every piece of equipment in your car will require a replacement sooner or later. Meaning, your Kia fuel pump will come to an end and the only solution to keep your car running is to have it replaced.
