The engine air filter is important because it ensures that the air entering the engine is clean. Air with contaminants in it is bad for your engine. If air is not adequately filtered, contaminants like dirt and dust will get into and build up inside your engine. This can lead to clogs within the engine that detract from engine efficiency.
It’s important to have your engine air filter changed because there are numerous negative consequences to running your engine on a dirty filter. A dirty engine filter will cause problems like diminished performance and slower acceleration. It can also reduce gas mileage. Over time, a dirty engine can cause even more severe engine problems. A dirty air filter can cause an engine to overheat more easily and experience faster wear and tear on mechanical components.
As a vehicle owner, it’s important to know how frequently you should be changing your air filter. In general, an air filter should be switched out around once every 15,000 to 30,000 miles. An air filter should also be switched out whenever it starts to look dirty. When the air filter is inspected, it is usually apparent if it is dirty and clogged. One good practice is to simply have the air filter changed whenever you have an oil change done on your vehicle.
