Extend The Life Of Your Engine With One Replacement From Christian Brothers Automotive Alamo Heights

Your air filtration system, which includes the cabin filter and engine air intake filter, is responsible for keeping pollen, mold spores, insect bits, dirt and debris out of the car and safely away from you and your motor. To keep your air filtration system functioning as it should, we’ve found two convincing reasons to habitually replace your car’s air filters.

1. Protect your engine from debris

Flying down the road, your front bumper is taking on the impact of any airborne objects. Bug swarms, mud and tree sap all pose a danger to your car, and only the air filter is keeping your engine safe. When the air filter is operating correctly, it’s accruing bits of waste and debris.

Over time, this buildup will obstruct the filter. A clogged filter lets abrasive substances into the engine, where the metal is susceptible to excessive wear and tear. These particles destroy the engine and could cause expensive damages.

2. Increase your vehicle’s performance

To ignite, your fuel requires a certain amount of clean air. To achieve the right ratio, your air filter strains the crud and debris flowing through the car. However, as the air filter congests, the flow of pure oxygen is reduced and pollutants can fill the fuel mix.

This disrupted ratio causes a loss in acceleration power and fuel economy. Over time, the dirty air filter can cause the engine to stop working.

Changing your air filter regularly keeps your car running strong

Air filter replacements are simple and affordable! Most manufacturers recommend a replacement every 10,000-30,000 miles, so ask our ASE-certified technicians for an air filter inspection with your next service.
