Engine Air Filter

What is the role of an air filter? For engine combustion in vehicles to take place, oxygen and fuel have to be present. The air and fuel are mixed, inducted into the cylinder during the intake process and results to combustion (internal combustion engines). Since air contains impurities like dust and debris, the air filter’s job is to trap all the dirt and make sure that the air going to the engine is clean and without any impurities.

When to Change Air Filter In Your Car

All manufacturers have a recommended milestone for air filter change. Use your car owner’s manual to learn about the location of the air filter and when to change it. It is advisable to replace the engine air filter for most vehicles between 15,000 and 30,000 miles. Based on your driving habits, you may want to check how dirty the air filter is if you drive many miles per year.

Cabin Filter

The cabin air filter prevents dust, pollen, and other impurities from getting in the vehicle’s cabin. You have indeed used the AC (Air Conditioning) or heating in your car. The air that blows through the vents passes through the cabin filter, where it is cleaned, and impurities blocked from passing through.

When to Change Your Cabin Air Filter

A musty smell or visible dust in your cabin when you blow your air vents can be a sign that you need to replace the cabin filter. Most cabin filters are either located behind the glovebox or under the hood. Replacing a dirty cabin air filter is an easy maintenance task that you can perform by yourself.

Fuel Filter

A fuel filter protects your engine from impurities. The fuel filter removes any impurities from the fuel, ensuring longer life of engine components and proper combustion. Your car manufacturer will always have a recommended interval when scheduled maintenance for fuel filter should be made. Refer to your car owner’s manual for more information.
