Want to improve your gas mileage? Then it’s time to change your air filter. Jiffy Lube of Indiana is here to help you increase your MPG.
Every time a vehicle’s driver presses the gas pedal, they are controlling how much air and fuel enters the engine. The Engine Air Filtration system aids in filtering the air’s contaminants and helps to ensure the correct air/fuel mixture.
The Engine Air Filtration System may consist of the following components:
- Engine Air Filter
- Breather Element, if equipped
- PCV Valve, if equipped
The Engine Air Filter reduces harmful dirt particles from entering the engine’s air intake system where they may cause engine damage.
The Breather Element helps filter the air pulled into the engine crankcase by the Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) system or a metered orifice.
The PCV Valve or metered orifice regulates the flow of crankcase fumes into the intake manifold so they can be burned and help maintain proper crankcase pressure.
As Engine Air Filtration components become restricted, airflow is reduced, which could lead to poor acceleration, reduced engine performance, reduced fuel economy, oil leaks as well as other issues.
As part of the Jiffy Lube Signature Service Oil Change, we visually inspect the Engine Air Filtration System components and recommend replacement, as necessary.
Visit your local Jiffy Lube of Indiana today and let a Jiffy Lube technician make sure your vehicle is maximizing your miles per gallon.
