Air Filter

The engine air filter is responsible for preventing debris and unwanted particulates from entering the engine. Air gets pulled through the air filter by the vacuum created by the engine before it enters the combustion system through the air intake.

Signs of a dirty air filter

Air filter maintenance

Changing your air filter is a part of routine maintenance for your vehicle. Ensure that you change your engine’s air filter according to the recommended interval by your car’s manufacturer. Replacing the air filter is typically a simple task, however, if your filter is buried deep within the vehicle, it may be harder to access without the proper tools.
