Air Filters



What does an air filter do?  Air filters keep the air that moves into the engine free from debris, and protects against added wear on the engine by eliminating pollutants.  Particles like mold, pollen, bacteria, and dust may damage your engine parts.  Air filters keep the air that moves into the engine clean from particles. The majority of cars have 2 various kinds of air filters. The interior combustion air filter filtration system the air took into the engine and stops additional wear on the engine by eliminating contaminants. The cabin air filter works to cleanse the air that moves into the cabin with the ventilation system by getting rid of damaging elements from the cooling and heating systems.

Why service is very important?  Filth and clutter can easily harm engine components, slow-moving efficiency, and even avoid air flow in the cabin. An unclean air filter can create problems with gas economy, performance, emissions, and in some cases may result in added engine repairs. Filthy or worn cabin air filters could badly impact Air Conditioning performance and could also pose a possible health hazard for the driver and any passengers.

Car Filters might have to be replaced if you have:

  •  Reduction of engine power or fuel economy
  •  Issues with emissions
  •  Smelling odd, wet or musty smells when the vent out is on

It’s advised that the cabin air filter be changed between 12,000 to 15,000 miles, or at the very least annually. Internal combustion air filters should be check frequently, and must be changed every 3,000 – 15,000 miles or with your oil change. Vehicles steered in severe roadway conditions, dirty roads, off-roading, roadway construction, or icy roads treated with ice salt, require that the air filters be changed more frequently.
