Engine Air Filter Service

Benefits of Replacing My Engine Air Filter

The engine air filter in your car works overtime to provide gallons upon gallons of clean air to the engine while you are driving. By filtering out dust, pollen, and other debris, this small part aids your vehicle's engine in running smoothly and efficiently.

Changing the engine air filter regularly will prevent many issues, from minor repairs to major breakdowns. When the airflow to the engine is compromised by debris, or there isn't enough air overall, your vehicle may struggle to accelerate, idle rough when stopped or have poor gas mileage. Making sure the filter is changed according to schedule means better immediate engine performance, savings on future repairs, and longer engine life.

When to Change Your Engine Air Filter

A typical engine air filter change schedule will recommend the part be replaced every 12,000 to 15,000 miles or once a year. Whichever comes first is likely best, but you can check the owner's manual or maintenance schedule for more precise advice on your specific vehicle.

There are also physical signs that your engine air filter might be in need of a change. The easiest way to check is by examining the part. Look under your hood for a plastic box, usually black, resting on top of your engine. Generally, you can open this box by unclipping it to view the engine air filter. A worn-out filter will often appear dirty, clouded, or dark in color. You may notice a film of dust or other debris.

Other signs that it's time to change your filter include fouled spark plugs, poorer gas mileage than expected, a struggling accelerator and rough engine noise while idling.
