Without a supply of fresh, clean air, the process of combustion that operates your engine can’t happen. Therefore, a working air filter is important. There are several different types of performance air filters on the market. One is the permanent air filter, which are designed to be cleaned every few thousand miles, and then put back in the engine. There are also filters designed to fit on a cold air intake. These improve performance by allowing more air into the combustion chamber.
Over time, performance filters become dirty. If they’re permanent, they need to be cleaned and recharged using the manufacturer’s preferred chemicals. If they’re disposable, they need to be replaced. Most OEMs recommend doing this roughly every 10,000 – 15,000 miles, but this varies considerably depending on your driving habits, the location, pollutants in the air and more.
While one of the simplest components on your vehicle, your air filter is one of the most important. We recommend cleaning or disposing of your air filter if you haven’t done so within the last 10,000 - 15,000 miles. This will noticeably improve your car's performance.
While a dirty air filter won’t keep your vehicle off the road, it will make the engine run poorly and reduce your fuel economy. The dirtier it becomes, the worse your performance. Have one of our expert mechanics install another performance air filter on your vehicle (or clean and recharge the one you have) as soon as possible.
