Fuel Filter Replacement 

Fuel Filter Replacement in San Bernardino: How Often Do You Need to Do It?

Dirty fuel can wreak havoc on your engine and on your car as a whole. While fuel filters are typically associated with diesel trucks and other vehicles, every new car, truck, and SUV has one--and it needs to be taken care of properly. Unlike oil filters, which need to be changed on a regular basis when you get your engine oil changed, you may never need to change your car's fuel filter in San Bernardino.

However, there are always differences between automakers so knowing what your specific car's manufacturer recommends is important.

How Often Should You Change the Fuel Filter in Your Nissan?

Some automakers recommend getting your fuel filter changed every 20,000 - 60,000 miles; others recommend a fuel filter replacement every 150,000 miles or more; others still don't even bother listing a recommended time to change the filter. How often you need to change the filter is based largely on--as unhelpful as this is--when the filter needs to be changed.

The benefits of changing your fuel filter before the recommended interval are minimal. The benefits of changing it if you're noticing problems, though, are huge. A bad fuel filter should be changed out as soon as possible. The service team at Larry H. Miller Nissan San Bernardino can replace your fuel filter quickly and efficiently.
