Replacing Engine Air Filters

Your engine’s air filter is a paper filter that stops debris such as dust and leaves before they get sucked into your car’s engine. Replacing your engine air filter stops airborne contaminants from getting sucked into, and clogging your car’s engine.

Why Is It Important to Replace Your Engine Air Filter?

Air is drawn into the engine as a critical part of the combustion process. The engine air filter captures airborne contaminants such as dirt, dust and even bugs before they can enter the engine. A dirty, clogged engine air filter can contribute to poor overall engine performance.

What Happens If You Don’t Replace Your Engine Air Filter?

If your air filter gets too dirty or clogged, your engine won’t be able to suck enough air into the combustion chambers. The engine will then run rich (i.e., too much gas and not enough air). When this happens, your car will lose power and run roughly. Your Check Engine light also may come on.
If you really neglect the air filter for a long time, your car may stop running altogether. While permanent damage is unlikely, it is possible. If an air filter were sufficiently dirty and damaged, it could allow harmful, abrasive contaminants into the combustion chamber.
