What Is the Purpose of an Engine Air Filter?
The goal of a vehicle’s air filter is to protect the engine by trapping harmful materials before they can reach the engine and damage its parts. As you can imagine, if a filter doesn’t get cleaned or replaced, harmful materials such as dirt and dust will accumulate on the filter. This causes it to become less effective, which in turn puts your engine at a higher risk for damage and excessive wear and tear.
Signs That Your Engine Air Filter Should Be Replaced
Unfortunately, there’s no universal answer for how often drivers should service the different systems in a
vehicle. A good rule of thumb is to check your vehicle’s owner’s manual for information about its maintenance. Our
technicians at Premier Autos of Dallas’ service department are familiar with manufacturers’ recommendations, so
you can always give us a call or stop by if you need advice. It’s still a good idea to learn about the different
signs of a clogged engine air filter, regardless of your vehicle’s maintenance schedule. Here are some of the
common signs of a dirty or ineffective air filter:
• Your vehicle’s acceleration is sluggish
• You notice black smoke coming from your vehicle’s exhaust
• Your check engine light is on
If you notice any of these signs, or anything else unusual with your vehicle, you should schedule an inspection to get to the bottom of what’s causing the problem. A quick inspection of your air filter will let our technicians know if it needs to be replaced.
The Importance of Having a Clean Engine Air Filter
As we mentioned above, your vehicle’s air filter has the important job of protecting your engine. Another reason why it’s important to keep your air filter clean is that it keeps your vehicle performing at its best. No one wants to experience sluggish acceleration, and replacing your air filter at the appropriate time will help you prevent it. Also, a dirty, clogged air filter can have a negative impact on your gas mileage which is another good reason why you’ll want to keep it clean.
