Diesel Engine Air Filter
The air filter removes debris and unwanted particles from the outside air as it gets drawn into the engine. This filtered air is combined with gasoline and the air-fuel mixture is what is combusted by the engine to make it run. Air filters for diesel engines tend to be larger than their regular gasoline counterparts to accommodate for the additional air that is needed to enter the engine.
Signs of a bad diesel engine air filter

Diesel engine air filter maintenance
As a general rule of thumb, the diesel engine air filter should be replaced every 12,000-15,000 miles. Check with your manufacturer’s recommendations on how often to change the diesel engine air filter as it may be different for your specific vehicle. During replacement, dirt and debris will also be removed from the air filter housing.
