Check Vehicle Fit

Dirt and even rust can enter the fuel stream at any point along the long journey from refinery to your vehicle’s fuel tank. So, your fuel filter becomes the final line of defense against damaging contaminants getting into your vehicle. Clean fuel, free from dirt particles and rust, is essential for the smooth and efficient operation of your vehicle. A tiny grain of dirt can clog injectors, leading to erratic performance and poor gas mileage. Clean fuel increases gas mileage and improves engine performance - and with the fluctuating cost of gas these days, that’s really important!

Product Features:
  • Defense against damaging contaminants
  • Helps increase gas mileage
  • Improves engine performance

        Comments about Purolator Fuel Filter:

        The plastic tubes coming out of both ends are much larger than the original all metal fuel filter on my Quest. I forced the hoses on with much difficulity but question if that was wise. I will look elsewhere for another filter.

            Price is Right

            Comments about Purolator Fuel Filter:

            The top connect is plastic, which made it very difficult to fit the hose onto it. Just be careful as you do so that it does not crack. I sprayed a little WD40 on mine to ease the process. Kind of an unnecessary replacement in most cases, but this is a fine filter as far as i can see.

                A:

                It is specifically manufactured for a particular vehicle to replace the stock one. We do not have the micron rating for it. But, if it fits your vehicle, the micron rating will be same as the original.

                I recommend purchasing a Haynes repair manual specifically for your vehicle. This should be able to assist you further into detail on how to repair or replace specific parts.
