What Is An Engine Air Filter?

Your Volkswagen engine air filter helps protect your car’s engine from external pollutants by cleaning the air before it reaches your engine. During your normal drives to and from Jersey Village, you are exposed to an assortment of environmental hazards and airborne pathogens. Your engine air filter helps block smog, pollen, mold, dust, dirt, and other contaminants from reaching your car’s engine.

Why Do Engine Air Filter Need Replacing

As you drive in Houston your cars’ engine air filter does a lot of work keeping your engine safe and purifying the surrounding air. However, over time your engine air filter becomes clogged due to collecting these contaminants, resulting in it losing its effectiveness. Your engine air filter can also become torn as it ages due to this build-up, which further reduces its effectiveness and lets pollutants into your Volkswagen’s engine.

When Should Your Engine Air Filter Be Replaced?

In general, most expert estimates advise that you should get an engine air filter replacement every 15,000 to 30,000 miles. Other automotive experts recommend yearly replacements. Such inexact figures are because the wear on your engine air filter depends on the environment you drive in. If you encounter a lot of pollen, smog, or simply drive in heavy traffic in Kohrville your engine air filter can wear out faster. Always pay attention to your car’s performance and if you notice any issues take it to a certified expert.

Signs You Need A New Engine Air Filter

If your Volkswagen needs a new engine air filter there will be notable performance issues during normal driving in Cinco Ranch. These issues can include increased exhaust smoke, engine noises, a reduction in your Volkswagen’s horsepower, decreased fuel efficiency, and display warning lights. These issues should not be ignored as they lead to reduced performance, increased upkeep expense, and over time can lead to build-up in your engine due to the outside air not being properly filtered.
