The gas your car or truck runs on still contains a few contaminants. Its production process can't eliminate all of them. They'd accumulate in your fuel pump and fuel injectors and build up inside your engine if not for your fuel filter.
Most vehicles made by GM have two types. One is a strainer, found in the fuel tank. The other is found in the main fuel line. If either or both get clogged, or they degrade from age, other problems follow. Put simply, though, it'll get tougher for the fuel system to move gas, and that means engine issues. Luckily, there are signs a fuel filter is going bad, and they're easy to spot. They include:
- A Check Engine light on the dashboard
- Rough starts
- A lagging or misfiring engine
- Shuddering while idling
- The inability to start at all
Engine failure here usually means fuel filter failure. To get a better idea of what could be happening, do a careful inspection. If it turns out you've got fuel filter problems, your best option is replacing them.
