There are so many components when it comes to vehicles, especially as the automotive technologies advance. That is why it is important to be as informed as possible about how to take care of your car.
Vehicles that run on fuel have many working parts in that fuel system to keep the engine running right, from the tank to the filter, the pump, the fuel injectors, and the computer that controls it all. There is a lot to keep up on, and if you don't, you could face expensive repairs or replacements.
Fuel is not always clean as it can contain debris, or debris can get into your fuel take in other ways. This is why vehicles have fuel filters. Some vehicles need their fuel filters serviced periodically because, if neglected, it could lead to premature fuel pump failure, ignition problems, and poor overall performance.
Just like you would change the filter in a furnace or air conditioning unit in your home, the filter in your fuel system needs to be replaced as well.
This is entirely based on the make and model of your vehicle. Each manufacturer has different recommendations for how often you should change the fuel filter. The best way to find out would be to check your driver's manual. You could also give us a call at Weber Automotive, and we can check for your car's recommendations in our computer system
Another important thing to keep in mind when it comes to your vehicle's fuel system is whether or not it has gasoline diesel injection (GDI) or not. Many cars these days do have GDI, and if they are not properly serviced, it can lead to a buildup in the intake values causing damage.
When the check engine light comes on, or your vehicle starts to stumble. It could be because of heavy carbon deposits, and it's a very, very expensive procedure to remove.
