Your family car requires plenty of clean fuel to run. If your fuel contains contaminants, your fuel injectors will eventually become clogged up. When this happens, your family car engine may not get the proper amount of fuel at the correct pressure to run at peak performance. This hurts gas mileage and performance as you drive around Eldorado Springs. It can also lead to the buildup of harmful deposits on valves and in the combustion chamber.
That’s why all vehicles, including family cars, come equipped with a fuel filter somewhere between the engine and the fuel tank. The job of the filter is to clean out little pieces of dirt and contamination. The filter captures the contaminants and keeps them out of the fuel stream. Of course, like all filters, it will eventually get clogged up and need to be replaced at John’s Auto Care in Boulder .
If your fuel filter is clogged, the family car engine can’t get all the fuel it needs, and it may sputter at high speeds or quick acceleration. Many fuel filters have a bypass valve that will allow unfiltered fuel through when they are clogged. This keeps your family car engine running, but doesn’t protect it from detrimental contaminated fuel.
Boulder car owners may find that they need to change their fuel filter at John’s Auto Care more frequently as their family car ages. Over the years, additional sediment and harmful rust accumulates in the fuel tank and can be drawn into the fuel system. Your fuel filter stands guard at the gates to your engine to protect expensive parts and to maintain performance and gas mileage.
