Performance Air Filters

Why Replace Your Air Filter?

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.

Benefits of Air Filters

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
  • Reduced Emissions
  • Increased Fuel Efficiency
  • Cheap Maintenance
  • Easy to Manage

Prolongs Engine Life

  • A particle as tiny as a pinch of salt could get through a damaged air filter and cause much damage to the inner components of the vehicle, such as valves and pistons, which can be very costly to fix. So it is so important to replace the air filter frequently. A filtered air filter is designed to catch pollutants and debris from the outer environment, stopping them from coming into the combustion chamber and reducing the probability that you will incur a huge maintenance bill.

Reduced Emissions

  • Messy or impaired air filters limit the ventilation to the engine and alter the air-fuel combination of your vehicle. The disparity is capable of polluting spark plugs, forcing the engine to skip or rough idle, can fuel deposits, and flipping on the Engine light. More pertinently, the imbalance also has a significant effect on vehicle emissions from your car, which contributes to the pollution of the environment around you.

Increased Fuel Efficiency

  • Replacing a blocked air filter will enhance fuel economy and acceleration, depending on the make and model of your car. Once you know this, it makes sense to periodically refresh your air filters. How much of a difference will an air filter make? The amount of air flowing into your car's engine is limited by a dirty or damaged air filter, making it work harder and therefore using more fuel. Seeing that the engine needs more than 10,000 liters of oxygen to consume one liter of gasoline, this airflow should not be limited.

Cheap Maintenance

  • An air filter is one of the cheap maintenance repair components and can be achieved by doing it on your own. It's important to ensure that the substitute air filter is suited to your exact car make and model. The air filter on newer, fuel-injected cars, normally located on the throttle near the top front or side of the engine. The air filter is round and enclosed in a black, rectangular plastic housing that usually has clips or screws that hold it closed. In older, carburated vehicles, the air filter is round placed above the carburetor in a circular metal frame.

Easy to Remember

  • In the event of any damage, your air filters should of course be replaced. It is however recommended to replace your air filters at least every 10,000 to 12,000 miles to maintain the highest possible performance of your vehicle. If you often drive in dusty conditions this interval should be reduced. Looking for the appropriate replacement schedule is best to check the maintenance schedule provided by your car's manufacturer.

What Might Happen If You Don't Change Your Air Filters?

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.
