Air Filter Tips

 

Air Filter Tips Coraopolis

 

You should check and/or change your Air Filter approximately every 6 months to improve your fuel economy and  to also keep your engine running smoothly.

Changing it annually or every 15,000 miles for preventative maintenance may be a good recommendation for the city driver, but not for someone who lives in the country.   A filter should be replaced before it reaches the point where it creates significant airflow restriction. When exactly that point is reached is subject to opinion.

Removing the filter and holding it up to a light will show how dirty it is. If it’s really caked with dirt, it obviously needs to be replaced with a new filter. Trying to shake or blow the dirt out is not recommended, because too much of it is embedded in the filter fibers.

NOTE: Many filters that appear to be dirty are in fact still good and do not really need to be replaced. So it’s up to you. If you think it’s dirty, replace it. If you don’t think it’s dirty enough to need replacing, then don’t.
