Air Filter Replacement

 What it does: Particles like mold and mildew, pollen, microbes, and dirt can easily harm engine components. Air filters keep the air that flows into the engine clean from particles. The majority of cars have 2 different kinds of air filers. The inner combustion air filter filtration system the air pulled into the engine and avoids added wear on the engine by getting rid of impurities. The cabin air filter operates to clean the air that flows in to the cabin with the ventilation system by taking out harmful elements from the cooling and heating systems. 

Why service is very important: Filth and particles can easily harm engine parts, lagging performance, as well as prevent air movement in the cabin. A dirty air filter could induce troubles with fuel economy, performance, emissions, and in some cases could cause extra engine replacements. Unclean or used cabin air filters may adversely influence AC performance and could even pose a prospective health risk for the driver and any passengers.

Car Filters might need to be replaced if you have:

  • Loss of engine power or gas economy
  • Emissions concerns
  • Odd, wet, or moldy smells when the vent out is on

It's suggested that the cabin air filter be changed every 12,000 miles, or a minimum of annually. Internal combustion air filters need to be test frequently, and must be checked every 3,000 - 15,000 miles or with your oil change. Vehicles steered in extreme road conditions, dirty roadways, off-road, roadway construction, or icy roads treated with ice melt, need the air filters altered more frequently.
