A clean engine air filter is important for performance and preventative maintenance of your vehicles engine.
Air flow is an important part of the combustion process that powers your vehicle’s engine. Air is drawn into the engine through the air filter, which cleans and filters the air to keep impurities such as dust, pollen and insects from damaging internal engine components.
A dirty or clogged air filter reduces the amount of air that can be drawn into the engine, which can reduce engine performance. Periodic air filter replacement is good preventive maintenance. By replacing a dirty air filter, you can protect your engine and maintain engine performance.
Replacement intervals for your air filter will vary, based in part on your driving conditions. A good rule of thumb is to check your air filter regularly and replace it every 10,000 – 15,000 miles. Refer to your vehicle owner’s manual for recommended service intervals.
