Little thought is usually given to the fuel filter, but your fuel filter plays an important role in making sure you get clean gas to your engine. Customers often complain about their vehicles having power loss, difficulty starting, or hesitation. Clogged fuel filters are sometimes the cause of these complaints. Our expert mechanics recommend you change your fuel filter every two years if you drive short distances on a daily basis.
The above problems are usually due to hazardous particles such as dirt, water, deposit buildup, and rust entering the fuel filter. By changing the fuel filter it allows a smooth flow of fuel from the tank to the engine. Every time you accelerate you are telling how much fuel and air to be sent to the engine. A calculation of air and fuel is mixed together before being sucked into the combustion chamber of an engine cylinder. At that moment the spark plug ignites the mixture producing the burn that powers your vehicle.
