Why does my diesel fuel filter need to be replaced?

Your engine's fuel filter removes dirt, rust, water and other contaminants from the fuel entering the engine. It could become blocked if not serviced.

What happens if it's not replaced?

Clean fuel is vital for your car's engine to perform efficiently. Failure to replace the fuel filter when needed could lead to a drop in performance and could mean your car won't start.

What do we do?

We remove the filter from the fuel system and replace it with a new one.

How often does it need to be checked?

At the recommended age or mileage limit.
