What is Engine Air Filter Replacement Service?
The engine air filter in your vehicle is an important component that helps your car or truck to perform properly. The engine air filter filters out impurities, dust and other harmful contaminants, so they don’t enter your intake in the engine. You should follow the manufacturer’s information in your owner’s manual as to when you should have your engine air filter changed. In general, you should have engine and cabin air filter replacements about every 15,000 miles or once a year. If you drive on unpaved, dusty roads or in heavy traffic on a daily basis, you will likely need it to be changed more often.
Why Should I Have Engine Air Filter Replacement Service?
Your vehicle’s engine is a precise item. It needs airflow in order to mix with the gas for your vehicle to function properly. If your engine air filter is clogged up with debris, or it appears black instead of white, then it affects the overall performance of your car in many negative manners.
What Happens if I Don’t Change it Now?
Waiting to change your engine’s air filter will cause a decrease in your gas mileage because the engine isn’t getting enough airflow. The engine will try to compensate for this by using more fuel in order to produce power when the air filter is clogged. This can cause your engine to misfire or start missing because of the extra fuel being used and it can make it hard to start. The abnormally high compensation of the fuel can pollute your spark plugs so that your engine misses or misfires. When your car idles roughly while you are sitting at a red light, it is a sign that you need the air filter replaced. Your vehicle’s engine, while you are idling, should sound like a hum. If you notice the engine sounds like it’s coughing or slipping or your vehicle vibrates, then it is most likely that the air filter needs changing. With a clogged air filter, your vehicle will not accelerate as well or it may make jerking movements resulting from the lack of air. Since your car will be using more fuel as compensation for lack of air, some fuel may not burn as it should and you may notice black smoke or flames out of your exhaust pipe. You will likely smell gasoline when you start your car from the excess fuel exiting from your exhaust pipe to indicate a dirty or clogged air filter.
