The fuel filter for your vehicle, actually, is a very important part.
All vehicles have a surprising number of small, inexpensive parts that can lead to expensive engine damage when they fail. One of these is the fuel filter. It’s small, inexpensive and if it fails may lead to expensive engine damage.
Cars, five years or older, have accumulated a lot of dirt and rust in their gas tanks. If that dirt gets into the engine it can cause thousands of dollars worth of damage.
You may be wondering, “How often should I change my fuel filter? That depends upon the age of your car. For older vehicles, it is recommended to change every 2 years or 30,000 miles. This is a maintenance part, so check your owner’s manual. Newer vehicles may not need to be changed, but always have it checked as needed per owner’s manual.
