Fuel Filter Replacements
If you are driving and notice your car seems sluggish or hesitates when accelerating, it might be time to have your fuel filter replaced. A dirty fuel filter keeps your vehicle from using fuel efficiently and performing properly. Sun Auto Service has the technicians, tools, and materials needed to clean your vehicle’s fuel system, as well as replace your fuel filter to ensure your vehicle is in peak operating condition.
Improving Fuel Flow for Optimal Performance
To better understand how fuel filter replacement can save you money, you need to understand how it works. The fuel you pump into your gas tank can become contaminated from rust, debris and other materials that reside inside your tank. Before gas can move through your injection system, it must first pass through the fuel filter. The fuel filter ensures the gas that enters and flows through your injection system is free of dirt, debris, and contamination. When the fuel filter is clogged, it can’t filter gas properly. If unfiltered gas comes in contact with your engine, it can cause damage, which can potentially lead to extensive and costly repairs in the future. This is why staying on top of fuel filter and fuel system maintenance is important.
Importance of Fuel System Service
Every time you press the accelerator, you increase the amount of gas and air that go into the engine. Over time, deposit buildups can form in your car’s fuel system, which can cause diminished fuel economy, a loss of power and other issues. Having your fuel system cleaned periodically along with regular fuel filter replacement can help prevent those issues from occurring. Signs from your vehicle that can indicate it’s time for a fuel filter replacement include:
- Loss of power
- Difficult Start-up
- Rough idling
- Reduced fuel economy
Many cars that were made after 2005 have a fuel filter built into the fuel pump module. When the filter becomes clogged, the likelihood of the fuel pump failing increases. We recommend for you to have your fuel filter replaced every 20,000 to 30,000 miles and to have it inspected during regular maintenance. Sun Auto Service uses state-of-the-art equipment and materials to clean the fuel system, and we will replace your fuel filter if necessary to improve your vehicle’s fuel efficiency and performance.
