A New Fuel Filter for Clean FuelMay 20th, 2018
Hello Calgary drivers. Today's Lad's Auto auto care post focuses on your fuel filter. When your fuel isn’t clean, your fuel injectors can start to become clogged up and your vehicle engine may not get the proper amount of fuel at the correct pressure to run efficiently. This hurts fuel economy and performance and can also lead to the buildup of harmful deposits on valves and in the combustion chamber.
That’s why all vehicles come equipped with a fuel filter, although on many newer vehicles, the filter is inside the fuel tank and is not serviceable. The job of the filter is to clean out little pieces of dirt and contamination. Of course, the filter will eventually get clogged up and need to be replaced. Fuel filters for diesel cars need to be replaced more frequently than those that run on fuel.
If your fuel filter is clogged, the engine can’t get all the fuel it needs, and it may sputter at high speeds or quick acceleration. You may find that you need to get a fuel filter replacement more frequently as your vehicle ages. Over the years, additional sediment and rust accumulates in your fuel tank and can be drawn into the fuel system. Your fuel filter stands guard at the gates to your engine to protect pricey parts and to maintain performance and fuel economy. For more information stop by or give us a call.
