Filter Replacement Frequently Asked Questions

How an Engine Air Filter Works

Microscopic particles that enter the engine, be it dirt, sand, or even leaves, can cause abrasion and wear on critical components inside. Over time, excessive wear contributes to symptoms like increased oil consumption, clogged fuel injectors, and unreliable operation. An air filter is installed to capture those particles before they enter the intake to prevent these symptoms and any repair costs.

The engine air filter is typically made of reinforced pleated paper or cotton that does an excellent job of filtration. Over time, dirt and other substances get stuck in the material and restrict the airflow into the engine. Your engine can burn more fuel, have a hard time starting, and the Check Engine light can come on.

Luckily, replacing the engine air filter is a straightforward maintenance item that takes just minutes in our shop.

What a Cabin Air Filter Does

Your car also relies on clean air inside the passenger compartment. Pollen, dust, mold spores, and other allergens can irritate your respiratory system while you’re inside, and a cabin air filter captures those particles to keep your car’s interior air clean and fresh. The same air circulates to keep your windows clear on rainy or humid days, not to mention blowing at high speed when you need to cool off with air conditioning.

A cabin air filter also has either paper or cotton layers with materials like activated charcoal to neutralize odors. When it’s dirty or clogged, you’ll notice decreased air volume through the vents, and you might even notice musty odors in the cabin. Replacing the cabin air filter will restore your interior airflow and help you breathe easy once again.
