Fuel Filter Replacement in Tigard, OR
Have you replaced your vehicle’s fuel filter lately?
Replacing your fuel filter regularly will improve your engine’s performance, prevent expensive repairs down the road, and can even increase your fuel efficiency!
What Does a Fuel Filter Do?
Fuel filters remove contaminants from the gasoline in your tank prior to it entering the engine’s carburetor or fuel injectors.
Over the life of your car, the gas tank will become rusted, eventually contaminating the fuel. Gas tanks also commonly contain dust, dirt, and other debris. A properly-functioning fuel filter will protects your engine by cleaning the fuel and filtering out any contaminants before entering your engine.
Benefits of a Fuel Filter Replacement
Replacing your fuel filter at recommended service intervals at our Tigard shop will help keep the fuel system clean from dirt, rust, and other harmful contaminants. It’ll also provide a range of additional benefits for your car, including:
- Better engine performance
- A clean engine performs better than a dirty one. Clean fuel makes for a healthy engine and a smooth driving experience.
- Increased life of other engine parts
Your fuel pump and carburetor or fuel injector will thank you when you replace an old fuel filter. Replacing it at recommended intervals will prevent expensive repairs down the road. It may even allow you to avoid replacing other, more expensive parts.
Better Fuel Efficiency
Clogged filters will force you to fill up your gas tank more often than you need to, wasting your money. Replacing your fuel filter will improve your fuel efficiency, giving you more out of every trip to the gas station.
How Often do Cars Need a Fuel Filter Replacement?
Check your owner’s manual for the correct recommended service intervals. Generally, we recommend having your fuel filter replaced every two years, or every 25,000 to 30,000 miles — whichever comes first.
It’s also worth having your fuel filter checked every time you come in for regular maintenance at our full service Tigard shop.

- Your car won’t start.
- Your car loses power when driving uphill.
