When should I change the fuel filter in my Lincoln vehicle?

Your vehicle needs fuel to run. However, your engine’s performance can be affected when the fuel filter gets clogged.

A new fuel filter helps remove contaminants while providing the proper amount of fuel to your engine.

Because the engine will run properly, you’ll enjoy optimal performance and efficiency.

When You Should Change Fuel Filters

 refer to your Owner's Manual for a more specific maintenance schedule.

Replace your fuel filter if:

  • Your vehicle is difficult to start.
  • Your vehicle idles rough or stalls.
  • You experience sluggish acceleration.
  • You experience decreased fuel economy.
  • You suspect a bad tank of fuel.

Because the interval at which you should replace your fuel filter depends on your vehicle model, refer to your Owner's Manual and Lincoln Maintenance Schedule for specific information on when to replace your fuel filter.
