- In Summer Tips
The summer heat mixed with added driving is a recipe for extra strain on your vehicle. The Jiffy Lube of Indiana blog has been highlighting summer car care tips to help you battle this extra stress on your vehicle. Next up on our list: check your air filter to make sure your vehicle can breathe this summer.
Your vehicle’s air filter can really start to clog up from the air in winter and spring. There is extra debris floating around the air that get sucked into your air filter. A clogged air filter lowers your engine’s performance and can hurt your vehicle’s miles per gallon by up to 10 percent. Make sure you check your air filter this summer to make sure your vehicle’s engine can breathe. A clean air filter means greater MPG and a happy engine.
Jiffy Lube of Indiana will also inspect your air filter as part of the Jiffy Lube Signature Service Oil Change. Our certified technicians will thoroughly inspect your air filter and will discuss with you whether or not it should be replaced. Just drive in to your local Jiffy Lube of Indiana to make sure your vehicle is both properly oiled and breathing correctly.
