Fuel Filters at a Glance
Even premium fuel still contains contaminants. For one, it's got impurities left over from the gas production process. Secondly, it has infiltrates.
If either of both clog up your fuel pump and the rest of your fuel system, the latter will have a harder time moving gas. Luckily, there's a way to make sure that gas is as clean as possible before it reaches your fuel injectors: install OEM fuel filters. Most Volkswagen cars and SUVs have two: one for the mail fuel line and one for the fuel tank.
Unfortunately, a fuel filter can go bad from time to time, and from this, engine problems almost always result. Luckily, the signs are pretty easy to spot before things get worse.
What are the Symptoms of a Fuel Filter Going Bad?
For one, your Check Engine warning could light up on the dash. Secondly, startups could get rougher. Third, your engine could lag or misfire. Of course, these aren't to mention stalling, shuddering when your vehicle's idling, or being unable to start it at all.
Fuel filter failure, though, has just one sign, and it's the worst one: engine failure. If you're seeing any such symptoms, do a fuel system inspection and replace the fuel filter or filters indicated in the results. Fortunately, you can order them online, right here at our auto parts store.
