Fuel Filter Change Cost
RepairPrice Estimates are based on the estimated time for the repair, labor rates charged by trained automotive professionals, and prices for quality parts.
These estimates are designed to show a range of fair prices, instead of a single price, because there is more than one part that is appropriate to use in each repair, and more than a single mechanic who is qualified to do the repair.
Each estimate is customized for your vehicle and geographic area. Estimates exclude applicable taxes, diagnostic charges and disposal fees.
Fuel Filter Change Estimate (National Average)
We recommend using high-quality fuel filters to keep contaminants out of the fuel system.
When replacing a fuel filter, the shop should also replace any associated washers or seals to prevent leaks in the fuel system.
A partially plugged fuel filter can result in a lean running condition and cause the Check Engine Light to come on.
Infrequent fuel filter changes can lead to potentially expensive problems with the fuel pump and/or injectors.
A dirty fuel filter can cause a "noisy" fuel pump and a loss of engine power.
