Engine Air Filter Service

Why You Should Replace Your Engine Air Filter

Air is an integral element in the combustion process that takes place in your car’s engine. For your motor to work correctly, it needs clean air. Cars have engine air filters to ensure that the air reaching the engine is clean. Over time, these filters become clogged with the dirt they trap. When this happens, you should have the filters replaced. Here is what you stand to gain by changing your engine air filters regularly.

Benefits of Replacing the Engine Air Filter

The primary benefit of changing engine air filters often is improved fuel efficiency. Your engine requires a specific amount of air to burn fuel at an optimal level. If the air the engine gets is clean, then maximum efficiency will be achieved. If, on the other hand, the engine sucks in the air that is polluted by dust and pollen, then fuel efficiency drops significantly. Research shows that you enhance your fuel efficiency by 10% by changing your engine air filters. Impressive, don't you think? Changing your air filters also protects your engine from damage and prolongs its life. The combustion process should not include dirt and pollen, so when these pollutants make their way to your engine, they can destroy integral components of your car. The best way to forestall this is by changing your engine air filters regularly.

How Often Should You Change Your Engine Air Filters?

You don't have to change your engine air filter every time you get an oil change. However, whenever you find your filters clogged with dirt and debris, it is time to replace the filter.

Most manufacturers also offer helpful guidelines on how often the filters should be changed. Some recommend a change after driving for 30,000 miles, while others propose a replacement after 45,000 miles. If you are in doubt, bring your car into our automotive garage for an inspection and a recommendation.
