Air Filter Replacement

Why changing your vehicle's air filter is important.

Your vehicle's air filter is a key part of keeping your engine running smoothly. The air filter is responsible for cleaning the air that enters the engine compartment. The air filter stops outside debris from interfering with combustion process in the engine. When the air filter gets clogged with debris, it blocks the air from entering the engine compartment.

Signs of a dirty air filter.

A car engine combines air and gasoline in the combustion chamber to create power. The air filter must allow enough air to reach the engine so it can perform effectively. Over time, the air filter can become dirty and clogged. A few signs of a dirty air filter are: misfiring engine, reduced fuel economy, unusual engine sounds, reduced horsepower and black smoke coming from your exhaust. A clean air filter helps maintain the right air-to-fuel ratio, and is critical to optimal car operation.
