When Should I Have My Fuel Filter Changed?

Clean fuel filters contribute to the smooth running of your vehicle. A clogged or partially clogged fuel filter leads to decreased fuel efficiency first, then to a complete shutdown of the system later if you do not take action.

The typical timeline recommended by car manufacturers is to have your fuel filter changed every 30,000 miles. However, there is a simple test that your mechanic can perform at every oil change that can diagnose any fuel filter issues before they become evident. A fuel line pressure check reveals a clogging filter long before you begin experiencing the symptoms of a clogging fuel filter. The pressure in your fuel line should register between 30 and 60 psi to provide the proper amount of fuel for your ignition process.

When you visit our service center here at Hiday Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM in Bluffton, IN request a fuel pressure test along with your regular oil change.
