Why Are Your Car's Filters Important?

Although they are often overlooked, your car's filters play an important role in the overall health of your vehicle. The engine air filter is certainly no exception. If you want your car to run at optimal levels, you need to check the air filter as often as you would check your oil.

Your car's engine air filter prevents contaminants and harmful debris from flowing through to your engine. If you fail to regularly check and replace your filter, over time it will start to fail. Just like the filters on your home's air conditioner or furnace, they eventually start to age and stop protecting vital parts from the elements if you do not replace them. Many manufacturers recommended that you change your engine's air filter every 20,000 to 30,000 miles.
