The fuel system is responsible for storage, filtration and supply of fuel to the engine. Its main components are a fuel tank, pump, filter, injectors, hoses, and pipes.
Fuel filters are consumables that should be replaced every 10,000–15,000 km in cars with diesel engines and every 20,000–30,000 km in vehicles with petrol engines. Other parts don’t have an exact service life and can last for many years.
Possible causes of reduced service life of components:
- low quality of their manufacture;
- mechanical damage;
- use of low-quality fuel;
- untimely filter replacement;
- water getting into the tank;
- frequent driving with a low fuel level.
The most common malfunctions of the fuel system include:
- clogged filtering element, pipelines, or injectors;
- faulty pump;
- leaky hoses, tank, or connections.
A fuel leak is extremely dangerous as it may cause a vehicle fire. Therefore, it has to be eliminated immediately.
