The modern automobile is a complex machine built from hundreds of thousands of parts. Some components get more attention than others, but there is one often overlooked automotive part that plays a very important role, the humble filter. As a vehicle ages, particulate matter can build up in various systems and components like the oil filter and fuel filter need to be ready to clean those fluids. If your vehicle is due for Toyota filter maintenance and replacement near Westport, CT, Colonial Toyota should be your first and only stop. Our team will only use factory-approved parts to do any work on your vehicle and the need for a new filter will not change that commitment.
Vehicle owners can schedule a maintenance appointment at the Colonial Toyota Service Department today by calling, 203-403-2640.
Unless a vehicle owner is taking their car, truck or SUV apart every day, they probably won’t know something is wrong with their fuel filter until the tell-tale symptoms start to present themselves. If you notice any of the following signs, it might be time for a stop at our service department. A bad fuel filter could cause the vehicle to have difficulty starting, cause shaking while idling and the engine could become starved of fuel and shut down because of a clogged filter. If a clogged fuel filter is neglected for too long, other problems could occur which will only make the repair bill more expensive.
The other big filtration system is for oil. This tends not to be a big deal because oil filters are regularly changed during oil changes. However, if oil changes are skipped or ignored, problems can get out of control quickly.
