What does a Fuel Filter do?

The fuel filter is part of the fuel system, the fuel runs through the filter from the fuel tank before it enters the fuel pump. It ensures the fuel coming from the fuel tank is clean of debris.

How do you know there is something wrong with the Fuel Filter?

  • When the 'Check Engine' light is on.
  • When the engine runs rough (power delivery is not as smooth as usual).
  • When fuel consumption of the car appears higher than usual.
  • When you experience problems starting the car.

When should you consider a Fuel Filter replacement?

Over time, a fuel filter can get rather dirty, clog up or fail completely. There will be a reduced flow of fuel towards the engine or, in extreme cases, dirty fuel will pass through the filter and onto the engine. Eventually, a fuel filter that does not work correctly can lead to further damage.

Should you experience problems with the fuel supply, then it is advisable to have the fuel filter inspected and, if necessary, have it replaced. Seeing that the fuel filter is a component that is especially prone to wear it should always be replaced as and when stipulated in the servicing guidelines set out by your car's manufacturer.

What happens during a Fuel Filter replacement?

  • Mechanic will inspect the fuel filter and the fuel supply system.
  • If necessary, the mechanic will replace the fuel filter.
  • Mechanic will advise if any other parts need to be replaced.
  • Mechanic will inspect the fuel supply system again for any leaks and test drive the car.

How much does a Fuel Filter replacement cost?

The cost of replacing the fuel filter depends on your car and what parts your car's manufacturer recommends using for the replacement. Find out what you could save by having your fuel filter replaced by Clickmechanic, by selecting your car at the top of this page!
