Don't Starve Your Engine

By November 29, 2012

Follow me on:

If you haven't replaced your fuel filter in quite a while -- or ever -- now is the time to get it done. Not only will an engine starved for fuel run poorly, but that fuel filter clog can cause damage to your engine if it ends up running lean for an extended period of time. Don't wait until it's too late, change your fuel filter today.

I found out about two years ago that some car companies have stopped putting in replaceable fuel filter and opted for a “sock” in the tank. The idea is eventually it will plug and take your fuel pump down requiring some pretty good repairs then. My 2008 Sable is one of those cars. I think Chrysler started that practice first and sometime later Ford followed.
