How does the fuel filter work?

Fuel filters are typically mounted to the undercarriage, on the main fuel line after the fuel pump. The filter traps particulates as the fuel flows through it. This keeps contaminants away from sensitive fuel injectors, rails, and fuel pressure regulators, preventing more expensive damage.

When the fuel filter begins to clog, the engine suffers from fuel starvation. This will cause a significant reduction in power and may also cause a misfire. These conditions may be intermittent, or constant and worsen over time. As the issue progresses, the engine may being to stall immediately after starting, fail to start, hesitate under throttle, or stall at particular angles on hills.
