Every time a driver presses a vehicle’s gas pedal, they are controlling how much air and fuel enters the engine. The air filter helps keep debris from entering the engine and it helps protect the fuel system.
The fuel from the fuel tank is typically pumped from a pump inside the fuel tank to the engine. In the line between the fuel tank and the engine, a fuel filter is typically present to help protect the fuel system. As a fuel filter slowly becomes clogged, the restricted fuel flow could lead to poor acceleration and reduced engine performance as well as other issues.
Bowman's Auto Service Fuel Filter service includes:
- Removal of old fuel filter
- Installing a new quality fuel filter
- Inspection for leaks after installation
- Phillips Body Shop recommends fuel filter replacement per the vehicle owner’s manual or as dictated by drivability issues.
