Textbook Problem

While discussing electric fuel pumps: Technician A says that the one-way check valve prevents fuel flow from the underhood fuel system components into the fuel pump and tank when the engine is shut off. Technician B says that the one-way check valve prevents fuel flow from the pump to the fuel filter and fuel system if the engine stalls and the ignition switch is on. Who is correct?

a. Technician A only

b. Technician B only

c. Both A and B

d. Neither A nor B

To determine

The technician with correct approach.

Explanation

Given information:

Technician A says that the one-way check valve prevents fuel flow from the underhood fuel system components into fuel pump and tank when engine is shut off.

Technician B says that the one-way check valve prevents fuel flow from the pump to the fuel filter and fuel system if the engine stalls and ignition switch is on.
