Engine repairs can be costly and could keep your vehicle in the shop for an extended period. Wouldn’t it be great if there was something easy and inexpensive you could do to help protect your engine and keep it running clean? Wait! There is! Pay a little extra attention to the fuel filter.
The fuel filter screens debris and keeps it from entering the fuel system.

Many vehicles have sensors that monitor the fuel system. When the Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) or Check Engine Light comes on, it means the sensors have detected a problem.
These serious problems may have a simple, affordable solution: change the filter. Consistent, timely fuel filter maintenance is important to dependable drivability. A fresh filter reduces contaminants and helps prevent damage to your engine and fuel system.
It’s often recommended that the filter should be changed every 2 years or 30,000 miles (whichever comes first), but that’s a general suggestion. If you drive a great deal on unpaved roads, or through highway construction which can kick up a lot of dust and debris you may want to change your fuel filter more often. You should consult your vehicle owner’s manual for the recommended interval for your specific vehicle.
