Checking and replacing a vehicle’s engine air filter is important in the proper maintenance of your vehicle, but it’s often overlooked.
The air filter serves to keep your vehicle running at its optimal performance. Your engine requires a mixture of fuel and air to operate properly. A clean air filter helps deliver 10,000 gallons of clean air to the engine for every gallon of gas burned.
A dirty air filter can negatively impact the amount of air your engine receives as it becomes clogged with pollen, dust and debris. The result is reduced performance in your vehicle. Did you also know that a dirty air filter is often the cause of a check engine light as well? That is just one of the many issues a dirty air filter can cause. Other problems include:
- Lower fuel economy.
- Issues with your spark plugs, such as rough idling or difficulties starting the vehicle.
- Problems with acceleration.
- A negative impact on your heating and air-conditioning systems.
Checking and replacing your air filter is quick and easy and most people can do it themselves. If you want your vehicle to run at its best, don’t overlook this simple maintenance routine. Your vehicle and your wallet will thank you for it!
