How to Check Your Car's Air Filter

Last updated 5 years ago

Your car’s air filter should be replaced regularly if you don’t want to face an expensive engine repair down the road. Watch this video clip to find out how easy it is to check your car’s air filter.

In most cases, removing the air filter from your car for inspection involves snapping open a few clips and pulling the filter out of its casing. All you have to do is check it for dirt and debris. You can knock the dust out of your air filter by hand; if it still appears dirty after you do this, it’s time to head to a car repair shop for a filter replacement.

Come to Dekalb Tire and Automotive Repair at one of our many Atlanta locations for quality service for your car, including air filter inspections and replacements. Call our family-owned and operated tire store and repair shop at (404) 252-9895 for more information.
