The engine air filter has one job and one job only – cleaning the intake air before it is mixed with fuel and injected into the combustion chamber. Although this sounds simple and straightforward, it is critical for engine performance as well as to prevent damages. Any airborne contaminants that get past the filter and make it into the combustion chamber will no doubt cause major problems. From toxic gasses, insects, smog, dust, grass pollen, road tar, mold spores, fungus, and dirt, these airborne pollutants are constantly using the incoming air like a trojan horse trying to penetrate your engine to cause damages. As you can probably tell already, a new engine air filter will always be an excellent idea to continue securing the benefits of clean intake air.
When you install a new engine air filter, it will trap nearly 100% of all airborne contaminants that threaten your engine. However, engine air filters are made of paper, and every single filter will eventually start to accumulate too much filth to restrict its performance as well as the airflow going into the engine. When this happens, warning signs associated with engine performance will begin showing up. Changing the engine air filter when its physical integrity is compromised is the best strategy in preventing engine problems. You can do this by simply following the maintenance interval outlined in the owner’s manual; however, it is also an excellent strategy to monitor the engine’s performance as well as inspect the filter periodically looking for the warning signs of a clogged, faulty, defective, or damaged engine air filter.
If you have any of these warning signs, even if it’s before the replacement service interval, it is the wisest decision to get it replaced ASAP:
