Symptoms of a Faulty Fuel Pump on a Honda CR-V

Updated April 17, 2017

The fuel pump is an essential part of your Honda CR-V. It is responsible for pumping gas from the tank to the engine so the vehicle can run. If you experience any of these symptoms, you should have it checked by a mechanic or take a look under the hood yourself if you are handy.

Stalling

If you have trouble with your Honda CR-V stalling, it could be a sign your fuel pump is beginning to fail. In some cases, the car will stall but can later be started.

Driving Rough

If your CR-V begins to ride rough, like it is skipping as it is driving, your fuel pump may need to be replaced.

DifficuIty Starting

Cars that are suddenly difficult to start or take a long time to start may need a new fuel pump.

Won't Run

A faulty fuel pump is one of the many reasons your CR-V may not start. This may happen even if the car seems to be have been running fine previously.

Acceleration Trouble

If your CR-V is accelerating strangely, such as having a delayed or stuttered reaction to pushing the accelerator, the fuel pump may need to be replaced.
