Engine Air Filter Service

Benefits of Replacing My Engine Air Filter

You might already know that your car has an air filter in the cabin, but what is the engine air filter, and is it the same thing? The air filter in your car's engine can be made up of several different materials, including cotton, paper, and assorted fibers. While engine air filters may vary in material, they all essentially help keep your engine clean and running at its best. The engine's air filter is designed to catch small particles and bits of debris before they make their way into your engine, and from there farther into the mechanical system. Once contaminants reach the engine, they can be difficult to remove, and they can cause substantial damage. You can easily go from having to replace one small part to comprehensive engine repairs, which can cost quite a bit of money! Along with protecting your engine's health and longevity, an engine air filter can enhance your vehicle's performance and maintain a proper fuel economy.

How Often Should I Replace My Engine Air Filter?

Many variables determine when you should change the air filter in your car's engine. This includes the type of material that the air filter is made of, the kind of car you drive, and environmental conditions. Some air filters may need to be replaced more frequently based on their composition. If debris contaminates the interior of an air filter, it should be replaced with a new one. The ideal time to replace your engine air filter in accordance with the automaker's recommendations can vary widely, ranging from 10,000 miles to 50,000 miles.
