Air Filter

How does your cars air filter work ?

Why should you change your air filter ?

Air filters prevent abrasive particles from entering the engine where they would cause mechanical wear and oil contamination. A clean air filter would also have a positive effect on engine performance and emissions.

When should you change your air filter ?

An engine air filter should be changed at least once a year. If the car is being driven in harsh or dusty conditions it should be changed more often. A quick visual inspection will reveal if the air filter requires changing or not.
