My Car Is Losing Power | Wichita Auto Care

When your fuel pump starts failing, it’s time to see the Wichita auto care specialists at Tracy’s Automotive.

You were headed to the skating championships when you first noticed that your car seemed to be losing power. It was most noticeable when you started to accelerate from a standing stop.

Sounds as if you might have an issue with your fuel pump. says the most common symptom of a fuel pump’s getting ready to fail is a loss of power.

“This occurs because there is less pressure in the fuel lines, and the engine is actually receiving less gas or intermittent streams of gas,” according to “This may happen while driving on the highway at high speeds, climbing up a hill or when you press the gas to drive away from a standing stop. A loss of power may also be attributed to faulty oxygen sensors or engine problems, but often it is the fuel pump, especially in older cars.”

Other symptoms that can signal a failing fuel pump include your engine misfiring when you start it and/or a complete failure to start. And, be especially aware of potential fuel pump problems if your car stops because you ran out of gas.

“When the gas tank runs empty, it strains the pump and can cause it to fail. Always keep the car filled up and never try to drive on an empty tank,” says

If you do have a failing fuel pump, or any other engine problem, the Wichita auto care technicians at Tracy’s Automotive will help with that.
