Air Filter: (Air Intake Cleaning & Filter Changing)

Air Filter Replacement:

Air filter replacement is an important part of the vehicle’s maintenance.  The air intake system allows the engine to breathe without the threat of contamination. Furthermore, an engine needs a precise mixture of fuel and air in order to run efficiently and the air enters the system through the air filter, which catches the dirt and other foreign particles, preventing those particles from entering the system and possibly damaging your engine. Changing your filters on a regular basis can have a significant impact on the engine life, performance and fuel mileage.

Check your owner’s manual for the manufacturer’s recommended intervals. But depending upon where and how you drive, a good rule of thumb is every 12 months or 12,000 miles. As air filters get clogged with dirt, grime, and debris, the volume of take air is restricted, decreasing performance and engine power. If you live in, or often drive through, rural areas with dirt roads or happen to get caught in a sand storm while on the highway it’s better to be safe than sorry and plan on air filter replacement more frequently than the average driver.

If ignored long enough, a contaminated air filter can cause your engine to work harder negatively impacting both efficiency and economy. There’s little safety risk, just decreased power and performance, but neglecting air filter replacement can have a big impact on the environment and your wallet.
