A part that often goes unnoticed, the engine air filter plays a vital role in keeping an engine clean. As suggested by its name, the engine air filter filters the air that enters an engine. As air is filtered through the filter, dust and debris from the road are blocked from entering the engine. Over time, with mileage, the engine air filter accumulates a lot of debris and can begin to perform its job less efficiently. After it has blocked too much debris, a dirty air filter can be clogged and prevent air from entering the engine. Once an air filter has accumulated too much debris, it will be time for an engine air filter replacement.
Replacing an engine air filter isn’t very difficult compared to the many other repairs that can be made on a vehicle. You can easily inspect your air filter to determine if it needs to be replaced. While every model is different, most vehicles have their air filters sitting on top of the engine towards the front bumper. If your vehicle has been replaced with genuine OEM parts, as we offer here at our dealership, then the air filter will most likely be inside of a box-shaped part. However, some air filters, like aftermarket ones, use different designs.
There isn’t a set schedule for how often a driver should replace the air filter on their vehicle. It mainly depends on the environment that the driver drives in and the design of their car. Drivers who drive in clean areas usually need to change their filters less commonly than drivers who often drive over dusty terrain. Check the owner’s manual of your vehicle to view their recommendation and make sure to perform a routine check on your vehicle to see the condition of its air filter and many other parts.
