The Basics Behind Air Filter Replacement Services at AAA | Bob Sumerel Tire & Service.
Engines have to be able to breathe. Without the necessary air, the engine can’t support combustion. A clogged air filter actually chokes the engine. The air filters in today’s cars are a paper or spun fiber element that captures dirt particles from the air entering the engine. When it becomes clogged, the air filter can reduce engine performance and fuel economy while increasing emission levels.
You should check the air filter at least every six months or 15,000 miles. In most cases, the repair shop will check the air filter with every oil change. To check the air filter yourself, hold it up to a light. If you can see light through the filter, it’s still clear enough to work properly. If you can’t see light through most of the filter element, replace it.
You can clean the air filter between replacements by tapping it gently against a flat surface. This should dislodge any loose dirt particles from the filter element. But when in doubt about the condition of the air filter, come to us for a quick, professional air filter replacement.
It’s a cheap way to keep the engine breathing freely.
