1 Answer

Three words is not a question,nor details of a vehicle problem

If you know what Preventative Maintenance is,you would know
that fuel filters get replaced every 3 to 5 years, depending on what
they look like, when you replace one & cut it open for exam

On your older vehicle with a possible steel fuel tank, they get replace every 3 years,newer plastic tanks do not have the rust
& debris that will clog a filter

What happens when your fuel filter goes bad

there are certain shadows of "bad" a fuel filter can leak. this will give a high fuel usage, a fine fresh fuel smell and maybe some drop in performance a fuel filter may jam. this will give bad performance, a stalling engine or the engine will not run at all a fuel filter can be missing. this is not recommended since fine dirt, wich in allways present in fuel, will jam or damage the injection system. there isnt much ore i would think of when it comes to a bad fuel filter.
