Automotive fuel filters cost around 40$ or less to replace on most vehicles. An electric in tank fuel pump can cost $600.00 on some models. Car maintenance saves money in this situation. Find the fuel filter for your specific vehicle below.
On most automotive fuel filters the inlet and outlet of the filter is identified with an arrow that indicates the direction of the fuel flow. It is very important that you install the filter in the right direction of flow.
For this, we'll assume a gasoline vehicle. Diesel vehicles are similar, but usually easier as the filter is typically contained in a canister that spins off and on, making replacement easy. Gasoline engines will have either a or fuel injection. This will affect the type of auto fuel filter used, but the procedure for replacement is roughly the same.
You will find automotive fuel filters installed in the fuel line between the fuel tank and the engine. Many of these filters are mounted under the vehicle. Yet others are mounted in the engine compartment. Consult your auto repair manual for the exact component location on your specific automobile.
