Signs That You Need to Replace Your Diesel Fuel Filter

Even if you recently replaced the diesel fuel filter in the past year or two, it might start showing signs that it needs to be replaced.

Signs you need a diesel fuel filter replacement include:

  • The vehicle has difficulty starting. It might not start at all. While the filter is not the only reason a vehicle has a hard time starting or won’t start, it is one of the problems that could cause a no-start. If the filter is filled with debris, it blocks the fuel from getting to the engine.
  • The vehicle has a rough idle. This condition is caused by several factors, including a clogged filter. If the fuel pump can’t push enough fuel to the engine because of a fuel filter, the engine will not run properly. Depending on how clogged the filter is, the engine could stall and not start again until you rectify the problem.
  • Loss of power. If you notice the vehicle doesn’t have the power it once had, you might have a clogged filter. You might notice this more when increasing accelerating than moving at high speeds.
