Hello Denver drivers. Today’s Express Car Care auto care post is focusing on your fuel filter. Is it time for a new fuel filter?
When the fuel your engine is getting isn’t clean, your fuel injectors can start to become clogged and the engine on your vehicle may not get the proper amount of fuel at the correct pressure to run efficiently. This hurts your fuel economy as well as your vehicle’s performance and can also lead to the buildup of harmful deposits on valves and in the combustion chamber.
This is the reason why all vehicles sold in Colorado come equipped with a fuel filter. The job of the filter is to clean out the small 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 regular gasoline.
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. These could be signs you might need a new fuel filter. You may also find that you need to get a new fuel filter 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 is the part that stands guard at the gates to your engine, to protect parts and to maintain performance and fuel economy.
