Fuel filter refines the fuel by screening out the dirt particles and debris which after transporting ,storing and dispensing becomes contaminated . This debris will damage the fuel system if fuel filter would not remove it . When the fuel filter has not been changed there can be problems as power cuts or losses when the car is driven on an incline .In that situation what happens is the under the load the fuel demand increases and a clogged fuel filter cannot meet the demand and reduces the needed flow . For this the fuel pump needs to work hard so a clogged fuel filter can damage your fuel pump as well . There is a common mistaken belief that a vehicle which is hard to start has bad fuel filter .At idling the fuel requirement is less and even a restricted fuel filter can meet the demand .A bad fuel filter normally reveals itself at incline or where there is need for acceleration , engine dying when there is need for acceleration , a rough idling engine and a poor mileage .In some cases check engine lights comes on too . The fuel you are using thus has a great effect on your fuel filter . The fuel which is contaminated and of low quality makes your fuel filter restricted and clogged so use the fuel which is of high quality so the life of fuel filter is increased which would in turn effect the life of fuel pump as well . Fuel filters are recommended to be replaced from 40000 km to 60,000 km. The benefits of replacing fuel filter in time can result in greater mileage ,increased fuel efficiency ,increases life of an engine since the fuel is not contaminated and does not damage the engine . Also a clean fuel filter helps in reduced emissions . So if your car shows above mentioned bad symptoms then its time to replace fuel filter .At cosmo car parts we have high quality of fuel filter with us at the best price .
