Engine Air Filter Service

Why You Should Replace Your Engine Air Filter

Vehicles come with engine air filters to ensure that only clean, impurity-free air reaches their engines. A dirty air filter can allow dirt and debris to enter the engine, cause many engine problems, or damage the engine. Do not wait for that to happen. You have to start replacing the air filter at the right time.

Benefits of Replacing the Engine Air Filter

Changing your engine air filter comes with several benefits. The benefits include reduced emissions, improved fuel efficiency, improved engine performance, and overall prolonged engine life. When you replace your clogged air filter, you will enhance the acceleration abilities due to the improved fuel efficiency.

A dirty or clogged air filter can reduce the vehicle's speed and make the engine produce strange noises. Moreover, you might get black smoke from in the exhaust, and the fuel consumption might increase if the air filter failed to serve its purpose.

The engine air filter's primary purpose is to keep away contaminants from the engine to make it function well. A dirty and clogged air filter increases the chances of debris landing into the engine, causing it to malfunction.

How Often Should You Replace Your Engine Air Filter?

You can tell when your engine air filter is dirty and needs a replacement. While the indications of a dirty engine air filter vary from vehicle to vehicle, some signs are common in almost all vehicles. Some of the common indicators include a decrease in gas mileage, ignition problems, a darkened air filter, or one full of debris.

At times, the problems will not be present. So, stick to the recommended engine air filter changing intervals. Manufacturers indicate the number of miles the vehicle should cover before you replace the air filter. The interval ranges between 12,000 and 15,000 miles.
