Fuel Filter Replacement

Keeping Your Fuel Clean and Reliable: What You Need to Know About the Fuel Filter

We all have varying experience with automotive and knowledge of their inner workings; some of you might be skilled mechanics already while others might not have the first clue how their Chrysler or Jeep works. Here at Larry H. Miller Chrysler Jeep Tucson, we want to keep you informed about the most important parts of your vehicle, including the fuel filter, which is an integral part of ensuring the fuel of your new or used car remains pure and free from harmful particulates which might find their way into the gasoline from the fuel tank at service stations or even the refineries where gas is processed. Your fuel filter should be replaced once every two years or 30,000 miles, whichever occurs first, and we are there to help at Larry H. Miller Chrysler Jeep Tucson through our service center.

An Important, but Overlooked Part

By now, you may be familiar with an oil filter and how it requires replacement every so often to ensure clean oil is umped into the engine. Well, the fuel filter works the same way for gasoline as your fuel is often stored in gas tanker trucks and concrete storage tanks at the gas station, where it may accumulate grime, water dilution, and other chemicals which could be potentially detrimental to your engine. However, as with the oil filter, your fuel filter will require replacement every two years/30,000 miles or so to ensure it continues to perform to the best of its abilities.

If you are unsure of how much time has passed since your last fuel filter replacement, be sure to keep an eye out for the signs your vehicle may need a new one. Such symptoms include engine stalling under strain, engine misfires, lack of overall power from the engine, or a decrease in fuel efficiency.
