Most people may not know this, but the vast majority of cars and especially diesel engine vehicles come with a Fuel-Preheater installed. The job of this heater is to pre-heat the fuel to ensure much better and more efficient combustion. Typically, the heater directs heat from the radiator via a series of pipes and coils. However, many vehicles also use a heating coil which preheats the fuel flowing into the engine’s combustion chamber. Since the UK is known to experience long spells of subzero temperatures a pre-heater makes starting the vehicle easier. It also improves fuel efficiency as well as acceleration both of which are desired by vehicle owners.
Replacing the Fuel-Preheater varies in difficulty depending on the vehicle you own. Also, the size, shape, and type of heater varies. So, you’ll have to look up the exact location of the preheater in your car. That said buying an aftermarket replacement preheater is comparatively cheap for most vehicle makes and models. However, what you need to keep in mind is the fact that at times the heater may not be faulty but rather the electrical system associated with it. The preheater has in most cases a pretty long life. So, if it is an electrical issue simply replacing it will not solve the problem. In that case, it would be best to have a mechanic inspect the vehicle and then perhaps get the preheater replaced. The other thing you need to keep in mind is that there are no symptoms of a failing or failed preheater. So many people only find out about it when their vehicle is in the shop for other repairs.
