Engine Air Filter Service

Benefits of Replacing My Engine Air Filter

Replacing the engine air filter on your car on a regular basis has many benefits. Your vehicle's engine requires thousands of gallons of clean oxygen per gallon of gas to run properly. The engine air filter's job is to filter that ambient air, preventing debris from entering the engine and causing problems.

An old engine air filter can cause both immediate problems and long-term issues for your vehicle. If the filter has not been replaced in a timely manner, you can experience everything from lower fuel efficiency than is expected of your car to trouble getting the engine to start at all.

A regular filter replacement is beneficial to the general maintenance of a healthy, well-running engine. By changing the engine air filter on a regular maintenance schedule, you can increase fuel efficiency and improve your car's current conditions, preventing costly repairs.

How Often Should I Replace My Engine Air Filter?

Depending on where you look, you will find varying advice on the suggested replacement frequency for engine air filters. Some vehicle manufacturers recommend the filter be replaced every 12,000 to 15,000 miles. Others will suggest it be changed every 15,000 to 30,000 miles, and some will even say to do it once a year. The reason for this wide variance is because every vehicle is different, and depending on how often and where you drive, your car's needs will differ.

There are several ways you can determine when to change the filter. You can go by one of the above guidelines, or check your vehicle's manual for the engine air filter maintenance schedule specifically for your make and model. Another practical way to decide if the engine air filter should be replaced is to inspect the component. If the filter looks black, coated with dust, or otherwise dirty, it's a good indication that it's time to swap it out.
