Air Filters – Are They Really That Important?

Every time you press your gas pedal, you control not only the fuel, but also the air that passes through your filter and enters your engine.

In order to operate properly, engines require a mixture of air and fuel. Your engine’s air filter collects harmful dust, dirt, leaves, and other debris to stop it from entering the engine. This helps ensure the correct air/fuel mixture.

Without clean air, debris that enters your engine begins to rub against the metal engine parts. This corrosion eventually causes parts to deteriorate and need replacement. Besides prolonging the life of your vehicle, regularly changing your air filter can also increase fuel efficiency and reduce emissions.

It probably goes without saying, but keep in mind that it’s less expensive to replace a dirty air filter than to replace parts of your engine.
