Fuel Filter Replacement

Fuel Filter Replacement at Larry H. Miller Subaru Boise

Our service team encourages you to schedule a service appointment when your Subaru needs a new fuel filter. The fuel filter helps maintain the purity of the fuel you pump into your vehicle, but just like the oil filter, it will wear out over time and lose its efficacy. A lack of a proper fuel filter can compromise fuel efficiency and lead to increased tailpipe emissions as well as engine damage in the long-term. When your fuel filter needs replacement, or you have questions about maintaining your fuel system, schedule a service appointment at Larry H. Miller Subaru Boise on W. Fairview Ave in Boise, ID.

What Does the Fuel Filter Do?

The fuel filter regulates gasoline pumped into your engine, keeping out any harmful chemicals or other particulates. While gasoline itself remains chemically sound for your engine, your local service station will keep it stored in underground tanks. In the tanks, and from pumping mechanisms, it can accumulate rust and dirt particles, which must remain out of your engine.

When Does the Fuel Filter Typically Stop Working?

Most mechanics would recommend receiving a new fuel filter once every 30,000 miles. Fortunately, your Subaru comes due for its most important procedures around 30,000, 60,000, and 90,000 miles, so our technicians will check the fuel filter at these critical junctures.

Do I Need a Subaru-Brand Fuel Filter?

Yes, a genuine Subaru part comes with a guarantee of compatibility and will last for a while. Likewise a genuine Subaru fuel filter replacement takes all the guesswork out of searching auto parts stores for generic parts.

What Happens if a Fuel Filter Goers Unreplaced?

As the fuel filter deteriorates, it loses its ability to perform its job properly. This may present itself through increased tailpipe emissions or a sharp decrease in fuel efficiency. A lack of a proper fuel filter can lead to engine damage over time, which also might manifest through the "Check Engine" dashboard light or a strong odor of burning fuel in the car.

If you detect any of these symptoms, or your Subaru arrives at its routine 30/60/90k maintenance we invite you to schedule an appointment for service at Larry H. Miller Subaru Boise today. See you soon!
