An air filter prevents harmful debris, dirt and contaminants from entering
the engine, and ensures a good mixture of air and fuel to support
performance. Just as humans need oxygen to breathe, a car needs oxygen
for the combustion process.
Over time, the air filter can become dirty and clogged. Once a filter is no
longer performing its intended function, it can result in decreased
performance and even engine damage. That is why changing the air filter is
When a filter is old and full of dust and dirt, you will notice a decline in your
vehicle’s operation. If you see a drop in fuel economy, decrease in power
and performance, or notice the air conditioning and heating system just
does not appear to be working as well, it may be time to replace it.
You should always consult your vehicle owner's manual, as maintenance
schedules for various makes of vehicles differ.
It is a general recommendation that you should change your air filter every
20,000 km or once a year. However, if you are driving mostly on city streets
or dusty roads, it is a good idea to change the air filter in your car more
often, or at least inspect it regularly. Air filters are not that expensive, so
replacing them frequently should not break the bank.
Most filters can be replaced quickly, if they are in an easy-to-reach place.
This is one of the car maintenance tasks that you can easily do yourself.
However, more of the present-day vehicle manufacturers are placing filters
in trickier locations. Hard to reach filters ultimately require extra service
time when they need replacement.

yourself? Here, at Right Way Auto Repair, we will be happy to replace it for
you and make sure your car is breathing well and running smoothly for
