Fuel Filter Replacement

Fuel Filter Replacement: Keep Your Gasoline Clean and Your Engine Running Efficiently

A fuel filter replacement is an important but oft-overlooked service. Taking the time to get the service done can have great benefits for the performance and efficiency of your car, SUV or truck.

What Does a Fuel Filter Do?

A fuel filter is a filtration system that's integrated into the fuel lines that run from the tank to the engine. As fuel passes through the filter, the paper inside catches dust, dirt, and other grime that's often found in gasoline. This process prevents the contaminants from reaching the engine, resulting in cleaner ignition firing in cylinders. The benefits of a properly functioning fuel filter include improved power and efficiency.

When Does a Fuel Filter Need to Be Replaced?

Fuel filters are typically intended to last tens of thousands of miles, but they do get clogged over time. Dust and dirt can build up in the filter, restricting fuel flow and affecting engine performance. You may be able to tell if you need a new filter by noting these symptoms, especially if you notice a dip in fuel economy.

You can also check your owner's manual to see how often it's recommended to install new filters. Or, you can contact our service center for advice.

Can I Replace the Fuel Filter Myself?
