9.7. Heater of the fuel filter



As the heater of the fuel filter consumes a considerable current, at engine start at low temperatures it is recommended to switch off everything consumers of the electric power.

Greasing of a sealing ring of a heater by pure fuel

At temperature reduction viscosity of diesel fuel increases, at the expense of hardening of paraffin containing in fuel. Therefore additives which reduce viscosity of diesel fuel are entered into fuel and allow to make engine start at low temperatures. On Vectra cars the electric heater of the fuel filter which, warming up fuel is established, excludes hardening of particles of paraffin in fuel.

The heater of the fuel filter is located between the fuel filter and the holder of the filter. The sensor constantly takes temperature of fuel passing through the filter.

Disconnect from a heater the electric socket, remove the fuel filter and a heater of the fuel filter.

Installation is made in sequence, return to removal. Before installation grease a sealing ring of a heater with pure fuel (see drawing).
