Your car is indeed an amazing invention, for it will not work properly if one of its main parts is removed. And one of these crucial parts that functions at the start of engine operation is the fuel pump. Available in both mechanical and electric versions, this component drives fuel to the engine. If you have a gasoline-running vehicle, you definitely have either kind of these pumps. But you better choose the latter kind if you want a safer unit, for an electric fuel pump has an electronic control unit and a switch that keep the device from working in case of an accident in which the car has overturned. If your fuel pump is old, you need to look for a replacement, and one brand you can go for is Beck Arnley. But before buying its product, let us first see if it has the right specifications you need.
- New unit
- Electric fuel pump
- Without a fuel sending unit and a pressure sensor
- Original equipment replacement
- Includes a strainer, hoses, and hardware
- Comes with a limited warranty
We tested this component on a 2004 Mazda 6 and a 1994 Subaru Leone, and here is what we have to say:
- This fuel pump came presentable, so to speak. The packaging was neat, and when we took the unit out, we were satisfied with its quality. The hardware, hoses, and strainer were all new.
- The installation of the component was made easier because we did not need to splice wires and reroute the fuel lines. That was a great relief. The white electrical connector on top of the component did not interfere with the old sending unit of the 6 and the Leone.
- We tested if the fuel pump and its relay were receiving voltage from the car's power source. The fuel tank vibrated steadily, indicating that the pump inside was functioning. Everything was okay with the fuel system.
- The product has a mid-range price.
- The product did not come with a fuel sending unit and a pressure sensor, which were two very useful parts. With a new fuel sending unit, we would automatically know when we needed to fill up on gas. The pressure sensor, on the other hand, would let us know if a leak was present in the fuel system.
- Warranty is not that attractive.
If you only need an original equipment replacement fuel pump, this one from Beck Arnley would be enough. It works and has a good construction, and the accessories that come with it are not that bad. You only need to use the old sending unit and pressure sensor, though.
