When Do I Need to Replace my Air Filter?

The air filter is packed inside the air intake case. This critical part requires careful attention if the engine is to operate at its peak performance and you want to deliver maximum fuel efficiency. An air filter screens out dirt that if entered into the engine can cause major damage.

Reading your owners manual will help you to know when it is the right time to change your air filter. Take into consideration that the environments in which you drive will also help determine when to change it. Persons who drive on roads with summer construction, which creates a lot of dust, dirt and grime, might need to change the air filter sooner.

An inspection of the air filter, along with an oil change every 6,000 miles is highly recommended.
