The Importance of Replacing the Engine Air Filter

You may have heard of an air filter in your car's cabin before, but what about the engine? The air filter in the engine controls the quality and quantity of air that reaches your vehicle's engine. All vehicles have an engine air filter, regardless of whether they have a diesel or a gasoline engine. The engine air filter keeps harmful contaminants like dust, pollen, and dirt out of your car's engine to avoid causing harm. Over time, the harmful contaminants can collect on the surface of the filter, which in turn can reduce the car's performance if the filter is not changed. If the air filter is clogged, it can also affect your car's fuel economy by reducing the amount of quality air that can reach the engine and the mechanical system.

How Often Should I Replace My Engine Air Filter?

Multiple factors influence when you should change the air filter in your car's engine. If you haven't had the air filter replaced in a while, or if you have noticed some problems such as a drop in fuel efficiency, you may want to start by looking at the engine air filter to see if it looks like it needs to be changed. Dark spots on the outside of the filter mean that it's time for the filter to be replaced. If the air filter looks okay, you can change it periodically based on the auto manufacturer's recommendations, which are printed in the owner's manual. You may need to replace the engine air filter more frequently if you drive in heavy traffic or hot weather.
