Auto Maintenance Basics: Fuel Filters

December 15, 2015

 

 The fuel you fill up with doesn’t work alone. It has a filter that works alongside it to ensure the fuel is free of any damaging particles before it gets to the engine.

Located along the fuel line or underneath the fuel tank, this filter is an imperative part of keeping the engine protected. Because of this, some mechanics recommend replacing it every year. Others recommend switching it out more frequently due to driving conditions. To find out what is right for your car, you guessed it, check your owners manual.
