Fuel Filters: What You Need to Know
Fuels contain contaminants -- impurities from production, plus infiltrates. Both can clog fuel pumps. When that happens, fuel systems have a harder time moving gas through fuel injectors. OEM fuel filters help make sure that doesn't happen.
Most Subaru cars and SUVs have two, for the main fuel line and the fuel tank. Unfortunately, both can go bad. When they do, engine problems follow. Luckily, you can avoid that result by looking for a few easy-to-spot signs before things get worse. They include:
- A Check Engine light on your dash
- Rougher startups
- A lagging engine
- Engine misfires
- Shuddering while idling
- Stalling out
- Being unable to start at all
Fuel filter failure is a worst-case scenario. There's one sign of it, unfortunately: engine failure. If you're experiencing this or any of the other symptoms, do a thorough fuel system inspection. Replace any fuel filter or filters indicated by the results. You can buy them online at our auto parts store.
