What is an air pump filter and how does it work?
An air injection pump filter is part of the emission control system on a vehicle.
The air pump system (more formally referred to as the secondary air injection system) is designed to lower tailpipe emissions from a vehicle by pumping fresh air into the exhaust pipe just after the exhaust gases leave the engine. By pumping fresh air into the exhaust pipe, the system increases the oxygen level of the exhaust gases, thereby allowing any unburnt fuel to be burned inside the exhaust pipe prior to releasing into the atmosphere. This extra combustion step inside the exhaust pipe reduces hydrocarbon emissions. It also adds heat to the catalytic converter(s) following startup, which allows them to work more efficiently. The air pump filter is the first step in the system flow, ensuring that the air pump itself is bringing in clean and dust-free air to pass through the system and ultimately be injected into the exhaust.
How do I know if my vehicle needs an air pump filter replacement?
Your vehicle may need a new air pump filter if any of the following are occurring:
The check engine light comes on and a diagnostic code reveals a problem with the secondary air injection system, air pump, or catalytic converter

Can you clean the secondary air injection pump?

Normally, the vehicle will still run and drive without a secondary air pump, however the check engine light may stay on and there may be a loss of engine power.
