If fuel pumps were not necessary, there would not have any on your car! If there is a problem with your fuel pumps, your car will not start, or it will start but it won't run for very long.

A bad fuel pump will hinder the fuel supply to the engine. The engine can run rough with an inconsistent supply of fuel, or it will completely shut off.

First make sure the fuse to the fuel pump is good then pull the fuel supply line to the carb and turn the key on and see if fuel pumps out (note: make sure you have a bucket the catch the fuel.) If fuel pumps out, the fuel pump is fine, if not than it may be bad.
