As a car owner you know that it is important to do routine maintenance on your car to keep it running at its best, and one part that needs replacing is your engine air filter. Below are some reasons why it is important to change your engine air filter:

  • Fuel Efficiency- The engine air filter traps dirt and particles that may enter your engine, if you do not change this filter it can reduce your fuel efficiency and engine performance.
  • Engine Life- By replacing the engine air filter you reduce the amount of debris that enters your car engine, even the smallest particle can do damage to engine parts resulting in costly repairs.
  • Easy and Inexpensive- Replacing the engine air filter is one of the easiest and least expensive parts you can do yourself. Most filters cost less than $20 and can be found in either a round metal housing secured with a wing nut, or in a plastic rectangular compartment closed with clips.
