A Clean Engine Air Filter will help Acceleration, Engine Performance, Fuel Economy, Oil Leaks, and Overall Vehicle Performance.

Every time a vehicle’s driver presses the gas pedal, they are controlling how much air and fuel enters the engine. The Engine Air Filtration system aids in filtering the air’s contaminants and helps to ensure the correct air/fuel mixture.

The Engine Air Filtration System may consist of the following components:

  • Engine Air Filter
  • Breather Element, if equipped
  • PCV Valve, if equipped

The Engine Air Filter is typically a paper element that reduces harmful dirt particles from entering the engine’s air intake system where they may cause engine damage. As Engine Air Filtration components become restricted, airflow is reduced, which could lead to poor acceleration, reduced engine performance, reduced fuel economy, oil leaks as well as other issues.

During your oil change our technicians will visually inspect the Engine Air Filtration System components and recommend replacement, as necessary.
