Why You Should Replace Your Engine Air Filter

Engine air filters prevent small particles such as dirt, dust, and other environmental contaminants from getting into the engine. A dirty engine affects the engine's power and performance as well as fuel emissions and gas mileage.

While the importance of having a clean engine can't be overemphasized, many people still overlook this vital car maintenance practice.

Benefits of Replacing Your Engine Air Filter

Your Engine Lasts Longer

A small particle of contaminants can cause massive damage to engine components such as pistons. Repairing these engine parts can be quite expensive. A clean air filter traps these contaminants and prevents them from getting into the engine's combustion chamber. This reduces repair costs significantly.

Enhances Fuel Efficiency

Another benefit of replacing your dirty air filter is to boost fuel efficiency. A damaged air filter restricts the flow of air into the engine. Your vehicle's engine, therefore, works harder and uses more fuel.

Reduced Emissions

Damaged or dirty filters reduce the flow of air to the engine, affecting fuel mileage and emission control system and engine deposits. Air fuel imbalance fouls the plug ignition, leading to engine miss or rough idle. The fuel imbalance affects the exhaust emissions leading to environmental pollution.

How Often Should I Replace the Engine Air Filter?

Typically, you should change your engine air filter after damage. However, to keep car performance optimum, it is advisable to change the air filters after 15,000 to 30,000 miles. If you usually drive in dusty conditions, ensure you change the filter more regularly.

Signs That the Engine Air Filter Needs Replacement

The good news is that you can tell if the air filter needs replacement by merely looking at it. Visual inspection with bright light can help you notice a damaged filter. General, a faulty filter is darkened and full of debris.

Other telltale signs that your engine filter requires replacement include fouled sparks plug, reduced gas mileage, missing engine, or misfiring. Unclean air filters restrict airflow to the engine causing concentrated air-fuel mixtures.

This rich air-fuel mixture makes the engine misfire or even miss completely. Also, unusual sounds such as vibration or slipping noise can be a sign of defective air filter. Lastly, if the service light goes on, you should check your car's engine air filters.
