Want to learn more about Fuel Filter changes?

Read our short guide with information on costs, symptoms and more.

What is a fuel filter?

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.

What does a fuel filter change involve?

  • 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.

Can I change my fuel filter myself?

Unless you are a qualified mechanic with the required skills, training and equipment to do the job, we strongly recommend a fuel filter change is only carried out by a professional mechanic. ClickMechanic can help get you a vetted and local mechanic to carry out the work. Just enter your postcode and your car's registration number at the top of this page and select the work needed to get an instant fixed price up front.

What are the symptoms of a bad 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.

How long will a fuel filter change take?

A fuel filter change usually takes around 1 hour, but can take less or more time. Ultimately, the time that the job will take will depend on a number of factors, like your vehicle's make and model, year, as well as other factors. Select your car at the top of this page for information on job time and cost for your vehicle through ClickMechanic.

How often should I replace a fuel filter?

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.

Can I still drive with a dirty fuel filter?

If you suspect there is any issue with the fuel filter or there are concerns about its age or condition, book an inspection with a professional mechanic as soon as possible, driving the vehicle may lead to further complications and will eventually leave you stranded if the fuel filter becomes blocked.

How much does it cost to have a fuel filter changed?

Cost for a fuel filter change is on average £80, with prices ranging from £65 to £90. Ultimately, 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!
