Fuel Filter

The fuel filter, which is installed between the pump and the fuel rail, removes dirt and contaminants from the fuel before it is delivered to the injectors and pressure regulator.

Although it is possible for the fuel filter to become contaminated or even completely clogged, this is an unlikely condition because of the high capacity and quality of Toyota's filter. This filter is considered to be maintenance free and no service interval is recommended for periodic replacement.

In the event that this filter becomes restrictive to fuel flow, the engine will suffer from surging, loss of power under load and hard starting problems. If it becomes necessary to replace this filter there are some important safety matters to consider.
