Fungsi Dan Manfaat Fuel Filter
Agar dapat menghasilkan tenaga yang prima, mobil juga perlu supply bahan bakar yang sangat baik dan ok tentunya. Baik dari segi kuantitas maupun kualitasnya. Hal yang harus kita perhatikan bahwa tidak semua bahan bakar itu bersih dari kotoran. Kotoran dan air pada bahan bakar akan bisa merusak komponen-komponen sistem bahan bakar, korosi misalnya. Untuk itulah pada sistem bahan bakar telah terdapat komponen yang bernama `saringan bahan bakar` (fuel filter).
Fuel filter merupakan komponen yang harus selalu dibersihkan secara berkala. Biasanya setiap kelipatan 5000 km. Dan, lakukan penggantian fuel filter setiap kelipatan 10.000 km.Penggantian perlu dilakukan rutin mengingat bahan dasar fuel filter adalah kertas. Di kertas inilah juga terdapat pori-pori untuk dapat menyaring bahan bakar. Lama kelamaan pori-pori tersebut kian rapat sehingga bahan bakar sama sekali sulit untuk menembusnya. Dan solusinya harus diganti dengan yang baru.
Bila tidak, mungkin Anda akan terjebak pada kasus yang beberapa kali telah dialami oleh para pengendara mobil. Sepele, tapi bila lengah bisa dapat mengganggu perjalanan Anda. Yaitu, mesin seperti kurang tenaga, terasa lemah meskipun pedal gas diinjak sedalam-dalamnya. Bila gejala awal ini terus dibiarkan tanpa penanganan segera, kejadian berikutnya bisa lebih parah lagi: mesin tersendat-sendat, dan parahnya hal ini akan dapat membuat mobil anda menjadi mogok.
hal ini telah disebabkan, karena fuel filter yang kotor sehingga dapat menghambat aliran bahan bakar ke mesin. Bahkan mungkin bahan bakar tidak bisa mengalir karena pori-pori di fuel filter sudah tertutup sama sekali. Dan ini juga akan sangat bebahaya sekali.
Memeriksa dan mengganti fuel filter akan jauh lebih ringan ketimbang memperbaiki kerusakan yang ditimbulkan bila fuel filter tidak bekerja dengan baik. Sebagai saringan, peran fuel filter bagi kinerja mesin sangat besar. Komponen ini dapat menghentikan kotoran dan air yang terkandung dalam bahan bakar.
beberapa hal yang akan muncul apa bila terjadi kesusakan pada fuel filter yaotu:
1. Dapat menyebabkan pembakaran jadi tidak sempurna. Karena telah mengandung banyak air misalnya. Efek berikutnya adalah tenaga kurang maksimal sementara konsumsi bahan bakar menjadi boros. Juga, emisi gas buangnya akan tidak ramah lingkungan.
2. Akibat dari adanya kandungan air atau kotoran yang ada di bahan bakar juga bisa mengakibatkan kerusakan (keausan) pada komponen-komponen yang dilaluinya. Misalnya, karat pada dinding-dinding cylinder block. Bila keausan ini terjadi, akan memicu kebocoran pada ruang bakar.
3. Dan yang terakhir, yaitu tenaga mesin terasa lemah. Bisa juga membuat oli cepat kotor. Dan bila dibiarkan terus berlanjut, pengaruhnya akan terasa ke mesin. Yang paling sering adalah suara mesin terdengar kasar. Dan lama kelamaan akan membuat mobil menjadi mogok.
FUNGSI DAN MANFAAT FUEL FILTER

From sea to shining sea, or at least from one side of the Hudson to the other, politicians you have barely heard of are being accused of wrongdoing. There were so many court proceedings involving public officials on Monday that it was hard to keep up.
In Newark, two underlings of Gov. Chris Christie were arraigned on charges that they were in on the truly deranged plot to block traffic leading onto the George Washington Bridge.
Ten miles away, in Lower Manhattan, Dean G. Skelos, the leader of the New York State Senate, and his son, Adam B. Skelos, were arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation on accusations of far more conventional political larceny, involving a job with a sewer company for the son and commissions on title insurance and bond work.
The younger man managed to receive a 150 percent pay increase from the sewer company even though, as he said on tape, he “literally knew nothing about water or, you know, any of that stuff,” according to a criminal complaint the United States attorney’s office filed.
The success of Adam Skelos, 32, was attributed by prosecutors to his father’s influence as the leader of the Senate and as a potentate among state Republicans. The indictment can also be read as one of those unfailingly sad tales of a father who cannot stop indulging a grown son. The senator himself is not alleged to have profited from the schemes, except by being relieved of the burden of underwriting Adam.
The bridge traffic caper is its own species of crazy; what distinguishes the charges against the two Skeloses is the apparent absence of a survival instinct. It is one thing not to know anything about water or that stuff. More remarkable, if true, is the fact that the sewer machinations continued even after the former New York Assembly speaker, Sheldon Silver, was charged in January with taking bribes disguised as fees.
It was by then common gossip in political and news media circles that Senator Skelos, a Republican, the counterpart in the Senate to Mr. Silver, a Democrat, in the Assembly, could be next in line for the criminal dock. “Stay tuned,” the United States attorney, Preet Bharara said, leaving not much to the imagination.
Even though the cat had been unmistakably belled, Skelos father and son continued to talk about how to advance the interests of the sewer company, though the son did begin to use a burner cellphone, the kind people pay for in cash, with no traceable contracts.
That was indeed prudent, as prosecutors had been wiretapping the cellphones of both men. But it would seem that the burner was of limited value, because by then the prosecutors had managed to secure the help of a business executive who agreed to record calls with the Skeloses. It would further seem that the business executive was more attentive to the perils of pending investigations than the politician.
Through the end of the New York State budget negotiations in March, the hopes of the younger Skelos rested on his father’s ability to devise legislation that would benefit the sewer company. That did not pan out. But Senator Skelos did boast that he had haggled with Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, a Democrat, in a successful effort to raise a $150 million allocation for Long Island to $550 million, for what the budget called “transformative economic development projects.” It included money for the kind of work done by the sewer company.
The lawyer for Adam Skelos said he was not guilty and would win in court. Senator Skelos issued a ringing declaration that he was unequivocally innocent.
THIS was also the approach taken in New Jersey by Bill Baroni, a man of great presence and eloquence who stopped outside the federal courthouse to note that he had taken risks as a Republican by bucking his party to support paid family leave, medical marijuana and marriage equality. “I would never risk my career, my job, my reputation for something like this,” Mr. Baroni said. “I am an innocent man.”
The lawyer for his co-defendant, Bridget Anne Kelly, the former deputy chief of staff to Mr. Christie, a Republican, said that she would strongly rebut the charges.
Perhaps they had nothing to do with the lane closings. But neither Mr. Baroni nor Ms. Kelly addressed the question of why they did not return repeated calls from the mayor of Fort Lee, N.J., begging them to stop the traffic tie-ups, over three days.
That silence was a low moment. But perhaps New York hit bottom faster. Senator Skelos, the prosecutors charged, arranged to meet Long Island politicians at the wake of Wenjian Liu, a New York City police officer shot dead in December, to press for payments to the company employing his son.
Sometimes it seems as though for some people, the only thing to be ashamed of is shame itself. Finding Scandal in New York and New Jersey, but No Shame
