Replacing Honda Fuel Pumps
I can also group Toyota fuel pumps into this part of the article. If you suspect a fuel pump problem with your Honda, please verify that you have power and ground to the fuel pump first before you replace it. If you don’t have power and ground at the fuel pump and you don’t have fuel pressure, the fuel pump is not your problem.
I mention this because a lot of people replace the fuel pump in a Honda and still have a problem. The truth is, Honda fuel pumps rarely go bad. In the 20 years I’ve been working on Hondas, I’ve replaced about four fuel pumps, and two of those were aftermarket. I’m not saying Honda fuel pumps are bulletproof, but they pretty much are. Hondas do have all kinds of problems with main relays, which supply the fuel pump with power. They also have issues with ignition switches going bad and not supplying power to the fuel pump or ignition system. My point is, if you have a fuel delivery problem on a Honda, don’t replace the fuel pump first thing; check to see if the pump is getting power and ground first. Don’t waste your time and money on a Honda fuel pump, especially if you’re going to install an aftermarket unit. This is a step backward. If you do have a problem with a main relay you can often repair it. I show how in this video. Don’t beat me up too much over my solder technique. I’ve heard plenty about it already.
