Genuine Engine Air Filters
Modern automobile engines are powered by combustion, combining oxygen and gasoline to run.
To perform properly, the gasoline and oxygen that merge in the combustion chamber need to be relatively free of impurities.
This is where the engine air filter part comes in, it works to provide the right amount of O2 while keeping out debris, dirt, bugs, and other contaminants that can damage the engine and affect vehicle performance.
It’s important that you replace your engine air filter regularly to avoid potentially costly repairs later on.
You will find a suggested mileage interval in your owner’s manual to have your engine air filter replaced. Keep in mind, though, that this is a suggested mileage marker. How heavily you drive your vehicle can impact your filter, and you may need a new one sooner than recommended.
Signs Your Engine Air Filter May Need to be Replaced
- Reduced Fuel Economy
- Misfiring Engine
- Unusual Engine Sounds
- Check Engine Light Comes On
- Air Filter Appears Dirty
- Reduced Horsepower
- Black Smoke or Flames Exiting the Exhaust
- Intense Gasoline Smell
If you continue to drive using a dirty or damaged air filter, your fuel will become too “rich.” This can result in erratic performance, poor gas mileage, and even complete engine shutdown.
