How to replace your fuel filter

A fuel filter is designed to capture dirt in your fuel, and keep your car running at its peak. Over time however, the filter will become clogged, and will need to be replaced. Again, this is a fairly straightforward process, and should be performed at manufacturer recommended intervals.

 

  1. Locate your old fuel filter - it should be in the engine compartment or under the car near the fuel tank - and remove fuel pressure if recommended by the manufacturer.
  2. Gently unscrew or unclip the inlet and outlet lines, and remove the old filter.
  3. Now, simply replace with your brand new filter, and reattach and tighten the fuel lines.
  4. Start up the engine and check for leaks. Zero leaks, and you're good to go!
