As small and insignificant as they seem, air filters are rather important to the overall performance of your vehicle and even engine life can be affected by air filters. Experts recommend the periodic checking and replacement of air filters to not only keep your car running smoothly, but to also keep the air in the cabin clean and pure.
WHY ARE AIR FILTERS SO CRITICAL?
The average engine of any car or truck is quite delicate and it can be damaged – in some cases severely damaged – by dust, dirt, and pollens or mildew present in the air. Air filters trap all of these impurities and prevent them from reaching the engine in the first place.
WHEN SHOULD YOU CHANGE YOUR FILTER?
Dirty filters can decrease engine performance and increase emissions. They can also hamper fuel economy. Dirty cabin filters hamper the performance of the air-conditioning system, leading to very unpleasant – and even unhealthy – ‘riding’ conditions.
Regular filter maintenance can prevent these problems. Schedule an appointment with McCabe’s Automotive today and we’ll take care of your air filters in a jiffy!
