Your vehicle engine really needs clean air to operate efficiently: it takes about forty-five thousand litres of air to burn four litres of fuel in your vehicle engine. And all St. Thomas drivers know that clean air is much better than dirty.
When your air filter’s dirty, it simply can’t trap any more dirt, so the dirt just passes through into your air intake system. From there it can get into the vehicle engine combustion chamber. And burning dust and pollen in your vehicle engine does you no good.
The verdict: When your engine air filter needs to be replaced; it needs to be replaced. How often depends entirely on how dirty the air is where you drive. A simple visual inspection at The Auto Guys will tell you when you need a new engine air filter.
When St. Thomas drivers look at their air filter on the furnace in their home and see it’s all clogged up with dust and dirt, they don’t hesitate to replace it. But don’t wait until your air filter (furnace or automobile) is totally plugged, by that time you’ve been running inefficiently for a lot of kilometers. When your The Auto Guys service advisor brings out your nasty engine air filter, you now know why you should go ahead and change it out.
