The fuel system at work in your Lexus vehicle is made of many parts, all of which allow it to do what it does best: deliver gasoline to your engine. Systems differ, but they all share some main components such as the fuel tank, fuel pump, fuel filters, and fuel injectors – though older models may have carburetors instead of fuel injectors.
How Fuel Systems Work
The fuel tank houses the gasoline your engine runs on. A fuel filter sits inside, capturing any contaminants that made it through the refining process. A fuel pump draws the gas out of the tank so that it can travel through a network of fuel hoses to the engine. There, fuel injectors deliver the gas in doses calibrated to ensure ideal performance.
In time, though, any fuel system can see parts begin to fail. You'll want to replace any bad components as soon as possible to continue driving your Lexus as you're accustomed.
