Fuel Filter Replacement

Fuel Filter Replacement at Larry H. Miller Casa Chrysler Jeep

When you fill up your gas tank, the fuel you put in travels through an intricate system in the car and passes through a filter that collects contaminants. Without this fuel filter, debris caught in the system could get pumped into the carburetor, causing damage that requires expensive repairs down the road. You can order a fuel filter replacement or schedule a service appointment in Albuquerque, NM with Larry H. Miller Casa Chrysler Jeep.

Keeping Your Fuel Fresh and Clean

The fuel filter on most cars looks like a large cylinder with tubes and hoses coming out of it - these feed the fuel in and out of the filter. While the gas you pump into your car is approved for its engine grade, the fuel itself might have contaminants from the refining process, or from the underground tanks fuel is stored in at service stations. The fuel filter takes care of these contaminants, but this part will not last forever. Typically, the fuel filter comes due for replacement once every 30,000 miles OR two years, whichever comes first.

How to Know When You Need a New Fuel Filter

If you're unsure about whether or not your fuel filter needs replacement, our technicians can perform a fuel pressure test to determine if the system is backed up due to an expired filter. A worn-down fuel filter presents itself with a sharp drop in ordinary fuel economy, with other symptoms including:

  • Engine stalling/unresponsive, cold cranking
  • Engine failure/total shutdown
  • Decreased horsepower, sluggish acceleration
  • Increased tailpipe emissions
  • Persistent gaseous/burning smell throughout vehicle
