How Often to Change Your Engine Air Filter

car air filter
 

Though it’s not as popular as an oil change or a tire rotation, replacing your engine air filter is another important part of your car’s maintenance routine. To keep your vehicle’s engine running smoothly, optimally, and at its most powerful throughout Hutchinson, you’ll want to install a new engine air filter about every 30,000 to 45,000 miles. If you’re curious about the function of the engine air filter or signs that it’s ready to be replaced, browse the following guide from the service experts here at Allen Samuels Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram.

What Does an Engine Air Filter Do?

The engine air filter ensures that all the air that flows through your engine’s cylinders is clean and free of dirt, dust, sand, and other contaminants. Naturally, the filter should be changed regularly as it accumulates these particles over time, especially if you frequently drive on dirt or gravel roads in and beyond Nickerson. This way it can continue functioning properly. 

If you’re not sure when your last engine filter replacement was, you can look out for the following symptoms of a dirty or clogged filter:

  • Sluggish acceleration
  • Misfiring spark plugs
  • Black smoke from the exhaust
  • Service Engine light comes on
  • Reduced fuel efficiency

Replacing Your Engine Air Filter

As always, you can reference your vehicle’s specific owner’s manual for exact recommendations for how often to change your engine air filter. If you prefer to change your air filter in your own Buhler garage, you can follow these simple steps: 

  1. Open the air filter compartment
  2. Remove the old filter and dispose of it properly
  3. Install your new filter and re-secure the air filter compartment lid.
