Keep Your Garner Car Breathing Free: Engine Air Filter

Posted July 7, 2024 5:44 AM

Hey Garner - this is something really amazing: Your vehicle uses 12,000 times as much air as fuel when you drive it. All of that air has to be filtered to keep your engine clean.

That's like 100 gallons (380 liters) of air every block! The engine air filter is just another example of a very important but inexpensive part that has to do a tremendous amount of work. And when it works, everything goes well. But, when it doesn't, well, it can lead to problems. Of course, your vehicle manufacturer recommends how often to change your air filter. But like most service intervals, where and how you drive your vehicle in NC affects when your filter needs to be changed.

Dusty conditions around Garner or polluted city driving means you'll need to change your filter more often. Our trained professionals at Matt Davis Auto can check your filter for you. In fact, it's often a routine part of an oil change.

When you think about it, a clogged air filter won't allow as much air through as a clean filter. Your vehicle needs this air to efficiently burn its fuel, giving you better fuel economy and performance.

Dirtier filters don't work as well as clean ones. A filter can only hold so much; after that, it allows dirt to pass right into your engine. Air filters come in all shapes and sizes. They also come in different grades. There are high performance air filters available for most vehicles. These high performance filters cost a little more, but they increase horsepower and may improve fuel economy to boot.

So it's important for Garner drivers to make sure and have their air filter checked. If it needs replacing, it doesn't cost very much at Matt Davis Auto in Garner and it should easily pay for itself in better fuel economy before your next oil change.
