Performance Parts / Replacement Parts

Your engine needs a constant supply of clean fuel to run well, and deliver optimum mileage with minimal exhaust emissions. The fuel system begins at the fuel tank filler neck and ends at the injectors. Along the way the fuel is pressurized, filtered, and computer regulated so the ideal quantity mixes with air for combustion. Servicing your fuel system is easy when you shop here because we have everything you need to do the job.

The fuel tank is more than just a reservoir for fuel. On most vehicles it houses the fuel pump and it also may have valves and sensors for the EVAP system. Fuel tanks can be made of metal or plastic, but the retaining straps are made of metal. Metal tanks and straps can corrode from exposure to water, road salt, and debris, possibly causing a dangerous fuel leak. We have the replacement tanks and straps that will make your vehicle safe again.

The electric fuel pump is submerged in fuel inside the tank, attached to a module or hanger assembly that also includes a float and sending unit that supplies fuel level information to the dash gauge. A strainer is attached to the pump to filter the fuel. The strainer is your fuel system’s first line of defense, and if it fails or becomes clogged, the pump can be damaged and/or fuel pressure can be diminished, which could cause a no start or driveability problem. No worries though, as we have replacement pumps, modules, hanger assemblies and sending units for every application.

While some vehicles rely on the fuel pump strainer alone for filtration, most cars and trucks have a replaceable in-line filter located under the vehicle or in the engine compartment. Unlike an air filter, you can’t see inside a fuel filter to judge its condition, so it’s best to replace it according to the vehicle manufacturer’s suggested maintenance intervals. Shop with us and we’ll have the new filter delivered to your door, so it’s ready when you are. While performing this maintenance, it’s a good idea to inspect the fuel lines and hoses, as these can corrode, crack and cause leaks.

The number of fuel lines on many vehicles has been reduced by “returnless” fuel injection systems. Instead of a fuel pressure regulator on the engine and a return line to send excess fuel back to the tank, these systems have a regulator mounted on the fuel pump or the Engine Control Module (ECM) controls fuel flow. Fuel injectors spray pressurized fuel into the engine in response to commands from the ECM. Each injector contains an electric solenoid that, when turned on, lifts a valve off its seat and the injector sprays fuel. The injector sprays fuel as long as it is commanded by the ECM.

    Does My Vehicle Have a Mechanical or Electric Fuel Pump?
    From the earliest days of the automobile, fuel pumps have existed to draw fuel out of the fuel tank and move it into your engine's combustion area. (A note for the purists: some very early cars, like the Ford Model T, used "gravity feed", which required the fuel tank to be mounted higher than the engine. These cars could only climb steep hills by ascending them in reverse!)

    How To Replace An In-Tank Fuel Sending Unit
    A Fuel tank sending unit is a term for the mechanical assembly inside your fuel tank which measures the level of liquid in the tank, then reports its findings to the fuel gauge on your instrument cluster. All sending units contain a "float" piece which does just what it describes - floats atop the surface of the fuel. Many automakers design the float piece as an attachment on a hinged arm that pivots as the level in the tank rises or drops. Others design the float piece as a cylinder that rides up and down around a metal shaft.

    Auto Parts: Dealer vs. Aftermarket
    The question of whether to buy parts from an automotive dealer vs. ones from aftermarket manufacturers is as age-old as the automobile itself. Below, we'll take a look at things worth considering to help you make a better choice if you're facing that same question. Automobile manufacturers and dealerships always advertise the fact that their parts are "genuine" because they were made by the exact same production facility that made the parts installed on the assembly line.

    How To Replace Fuel Injectors
    Fuel injectors spray fuel directly into your engine’s cylinders during the intake stroke when a piston moves down to allow air and fuel to fill the cylinder chamber. When injectors are malfunctioning, leaking, or have failed completely, they will cause rough engine performance, poor idle, reduced power and economy, and exhaust that’s rich enough in unburned fuel to damage expensive exhaust parts such as oxygen sensors and catalytic converters.
