Fuel Filter


Does your engine run ok if you drive it easily but falls on it's face when you floor it?  You could have a clogged fuel filter.  Fuel filters must be replaced periodically.

Almost all vehicles now have the fuel pump inside the fuel tank.  If the fuel pump has to push the gasoline through a dirty fuel filter, it works its butt off.  Most fuel pumps fail because they have been worked to death.
