Give Your Engine Clean Fuel With A New Fuel Filter From West Service Center, Inc.

 

Your van requires plenty of clean fuel to run. If your fuel contains contaminants, your fuel injectors will eventually become clogged up. When this happens, your van engine may not get the proper amount of fuel at the correct pressure to run at peak performance. This hurts gas mileage and performance as you drive around Chesapeake. It can also lead to the buildup of harmful deposits on valves and in the combustion chamber.

That’s why all vehicles, including vans, come equipped with a fuel filter somewhere between the engine and the fuel tank. The job of the filter is to clean out little pieces of dirt and contamination. The filter captures the contaminants and keeps them out of the fuel stream. Of course, like all filters, it will eventually get clogged up and need to be replaced at West Service Center, Inc. in Chesapeake .

If your fuel filter is clogged, the van engine can’t get all the fuel it needs, and it may sputter at high speeds or quick acceleration. Many fuel filters have a bypass valve that will allow unfiltered fuel through when they are clogged. This keeps your van engine running, but doesn’t protect it from contaminated fuel.

You may find that you need to change your fuel filter at West Service Center, Inc. more frequently as your van ages. Over the years, additional sediment and rust accumulates in the fuel tank and can be drawn into the fuel system. Your fuel filter stands guard at the gates to your engine to protect expensive parts and to maintain performance and fuel economy.
