    Hi,

    I have a 2015 Honda Civic LX (CVT, 4cyl - 1.8L).

    1. Do we have a replaceable fuel filter in this car? I am getting conflicting answers on the internet.
    ---*I am NOT asking about the oil filter, air cleaner element (Aka engine air filter), or the air cabin filter (aka dust & pollen filter).

    2. When should this be replaced?
    ---*I've read that the maintenance minder will not alert you to this, and not replacing it will eventually lead to the fuel pump getting clogged.

    I know the savvy seasoned repairman/woman in you has the answer so let me know! [​IMG]

    Replace the fuel filter when the fuel pressure drops below specifications.

    Invest in a factory service manual, it should tell you everything you need to know.

    I assume this is different than the owner's manual? Is this the factory service manual you're referencing? https://haynes.com/en-us/honda/civic/2012-2015

    Please let me know, and thank you.

    The factory service manual is written by Honda. For your civic, the manual is not available for purchase. You have to subscribe ($) online to get access.
