Tip & How-To about Chevrolet C1500
It is not ever thought of,and with todays fuel is not the best with all the chemicals they use at the refineries >.We change the oil,every 2 to 3000 miles,and that is a good thing,air filters when they are dirty,but what about the fuel filters?This is a filter no one likes to fool with,but I tell you 50 percent of fuel pump failure is the result of clogged fuel filters.They are nasty to fool with,and we just do not think about them to often.A clogged,or restricted fuel filter will cause a fuel pump to strain trying to pump the fuel from the fuel tank up to the engine.This causes more pressure on the pump,the fuel pressure has to go somewhere,and the pump just blows out it`s seals cause there is nowhere for the fuel to go.So my suggestion is every other oil change,install a new fuel filter.With todays fuel,there will be more to clog a fuel filter than there used to be.
