Your engine wants clean air too!

Your engine wants clean air too!

Did you know? Your vehicle uses 12,000 times as much air as fuel when you drive it? That's a lot of air to be filtered to keep your engine running clean. That is the sole purpose of the engine air filter.

That's like 100 gallons of air every block! The engine air filter is just another example of a very important but inexpensive part that has to do a tremendous amount of work. When it does it job filtering the air, everything goes well but when it gets clogged, it doesn't go well, it can lead to serious problems. Of course, your vehicle manufacturer has a recommended service interval on how often to change your air filter. Remember like most service intervals, where and how you drive your vehicle affects when your filter should be changed.

Dusty conditions around Cartersville or pollution in city driving means you'll need to change your air filter more often. Our ASE Certified trained Technicians at Best Auto Repair Experience can check your engine air filter for you. In fact, it's part of our oil change service and is one of the items inspected during the vehicle inspection process.

When you think about it, a clogged air filter won't allow as much air through as a clean filter. Your vehicle needs this air to efficiently run and burn its fuel/air mixture correctly, giving you better fuel economy and performance.

Dirty filters don't work as well as clean ones, this is a fact. A filter can only hold so much; once clogged, it can allow dirt to pass right into your engine. Air filters come in all shapes and sizes and also come in different grades. There are high performance air filters and reusable filters available for most vehicles. These performance filters cost a little more, and require routine cleaning but increase horsepower and may improve fuel economy.

So it's important for Cartersville drivers to have their air filter checked routinely. If it needs replacing, replace it, it doesn't cost very much at Best Auto Repair Experience and it will easily pay for itself with better fuel economy, and longer engine life.
