Just had a my 2012 Kia Sportage serviced. The fuel filter warning light is on the dashboard and now when i drive it the car feels like it's low on power on acceleration. The car was perfect before they replaced the fuel filter

Hi.there.

Could be several reason..i do know there a few connectors on the filter housing the filter screws onto..might be worth checking these are connected..its sounds like it been bled the filter i mean if the car actually runs so you could disregard that being an issue..id say if this problem only happened after fuel filter change..then id be more leaning to a bad filter or cheap after market..might be worth worth maybe getting a filter from the dealer itself..there not really anymore expensive..worth a try and see how that goes..
