Your engine functions as a large air pump, constantly sucking air in and pushing it back out. Clean air is vital to the longevity of your engine, which is why all cars utilize an engine air filter. Without an air filter, dust and dirt will get sucked into the engine and cause detrimental damage over a long period of time.
Replacing your OEM air filter is part of regular vehicle maintenance and upgrading to a high-performance air filter is a great way to improve the life of your engine while also improving power. An aftermarket high-performance filter will offer better flow and better filtration than a basic filter. Many aftermarket air filters are also washable and reusable, eliminating the need to buy a new air filter.
An air filter may not seem a vital feature to test and repair on a daily basis but it is necessary to improve the efficiency of your car. The filtration controls the spread of tiny particles into the motor and can cause potentially costly damage.
5 Benefits of Changing Air Filters
Prolongs Engine Life
Increased Fuel Efficiency
Easy to Remember
A few things may happen. One that will happen eventually is the engine is going to have a tough time getting air in. Because the engine requires the air to be combined with the fuel to be combusted, the fuel does not either fire or burn just as intensely, resulting in a decrease in engine power. This may also cause the engine to start running loosely, leading to an overall decrease in fuel economy because more gas is required to achieve the same speed.
Eventually, the engine may start working so tough to bring air through the filter that it could begin pulling through debris, which may cause damage to the internal components of the engine. Finally, the percentage of toxic substances getting past the hopelessly congested filter will cause your car to stop running entirely, possibly causing serious damage.
A fresh air filter will reduce emissions, increase gas mileage, provide maximum airflow, and enhance engine efficiency. Besides, changing the air filter regularly can protect the engine and critical internal engine components from unnecessary excessive wear resulting in drivability issues and costly engine improvements.
