Vehicle Maintenance

Air Filter

  • The air filter traps dirt particles, which can cause damage to engine cylinders, walls, pistons, and piston rings.
  • The air filter also plays a role in keeping contaminants off the airflow sensor (fuel injected cars) and sometimes in cleaning the air that enters the crankcase for crankcase ventilation.
  • Air filter serves as a silencer for your car’s intake system.
  • Your car can use more than 10,000 gallons of air for every gallon of fuel burned.
  • It is best to check your air filter with every oil change.
  • Check your air filter more often if you frequently drive in dirty and dusty conditions because it might require more frequent filter replacements.
  • Driving with a dirty filter restricts the air entering the engine and if severe, can impact fuel economy and performance.
