BENEFITS OF REPLACING MY ENGINE AIR FILTER

When it comes to the mechanical system, it's imperative to keep up with regular maintenance and repairs. One crucial component in the mechanical system that needs to be inspected and changed regularly is the engine air filter. The engine air filter produces many health benefits for your car, including purifying the air that enters the engine. If the air filter gets clogged or damaged, it does not filter air as it should, which in turn compromises vehicle performance. A working air filter can also improve the car's fuel efficiency. Over time, it protects the engine from damage and even extends the lifespan of your car.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I REPLACE MY ENGINE AIR FILTER?

The air filter's optimal replacement schedule varies by vehicle. Hot summer days and dust can reduce the longevity of an engine air filter, meaning more frequent replacements. Driving in heavy traffic can wear out the engine air filter, too. Under normal operating conditions, you can also follow the vehicle's manual for guidance on when to replace the engine air filter. The car may need the filter changed as often as every 10,000 miles. Other times, it can go for 45,000 - 50,000 miles before it needs service.

Along with providing a mileage-based estimate for filter changes, the owner's manual also shows where the engine air filter is located. This way, you can check the filter's physical condition for black spots or dark patches on the filter's surface. If you see dark discoloration, it's probably time to get a replacement.
