SPRING IS THE PERFECT TIME TO CHANGE YOUR AIR FILTER!
Spring is around the corner, and we at Integrity Automotive are welcoming it after this long Indiana winter! Now is the perfect time to take care of all your car’s maintenance needs. This includes replacing your car air filters, including your engine air filter. So why is spring a good time to change your car’s air filters?
WHY YOU NEED YOUR ENGINE AIR FILTER CHANGED THIS SPRING!
During springtime, your air filters are working double time for your car to keep running with all of the changes in the weather. Right before all the pollen hits, have a technician you trust inspect your air filters (generally at your next scheduled maintenance interval, or oil change,) to be sure your car is ready to hit the road.
Two Types of Car Air Filters
Modern cars have two main air filters that need changed at manufacturer recommendations. There is a cabin air filter, and an engine air filter. The cabin air filter is generally located right in your glove compartment or beneath the dashboard. The engine air filter is located under the hood. Your engine air filter prevents dust, dirt, or anything else from getting into your engine. But the cabin air filter works to keep your air inside the car clean and crisp.
HOW OFTEN DO I NEED TO CHANGE MY AIR FILTERS?
Knowing when to change your car’s air filters is important for the health of your car! Maintenance schedules for different makes of vehicles differ on when the air filters should be changed. Check your owner’s manual to see the suggested time to replace all your vehicle’s air filters. Some possible symptoms that conclude you need to change your filters are:
- A decrease in gas mileage
- The air filters look dirty and dusty
- Musty smells in the cabin
- Car Manual Recommendations
