      Here are some signs that you need to replace your filter:

      Your car won’t start

      While there are many reasons why your car engine won’t start, one of the most common reasons is having faulty filters. When your filters are completely blocked, the fuel wouldn’t be able to get to your engine. Therefore, if your engine does not start easily, check your filters at once.

      Your engine dies during drives

      If your engine keeps dying while you drive, your car may be having fuel distribution problems. Again, your filters might have something to do with this issue.  If your engine breaks down while you’re on the road, make sure you know what you should do when this happens. This is why it is important to clean your filters once in a while. If you’re still having engine problems after cleaning, it may be time to replace the filters.

      You struggle with gaining speed

      If you are struggling to gain speed with your car, you may need to check your filters. Inefficient filters stop fuel from flowing freely into the engine.  Clogged filters mean that your engine isn’t able to get the fuel it needs to work like it’s supposed to.

      If your filters do need to be replaced, make sure you get the ones that are compatible with your car. Using a filter that isn’t made for your vehicle could result in even more problems so make sure you do your research on where to get the filter you’ll need.
