What are the Purposes of Car Air Filters?

Last updated 5 years ago

Inside your vehicle are a variety of filters that work to help remove impurities before they reach the engine. Watch the video clip to find out how the car’s air filter and cabin air filter work and why it’s important to go to a car repair shop to replace these inexpensive filters when they become clogged. You can even get them checked and, if needed, replaced when you take your vehicle in for a simple oil change.

The air filter in your car purifies the air that heads into the engine. If it becomes clogged with debris, it restricts the amount of air that your engine can receive. Not only does this reduce the engine’s horsepower, but it also decreases your vehicle’s overall fuel efficiency. Click play to learn more about the air filters inside your vehicle and when you should have them changed.
