TLC Custom Exhaust Brakes & Tires Engine Air Filter Replacement
Posted in Engine Air Filter on February 27, 2016
When your experienced TLC Custom Exhaust Brakes & Tires technician changes your oil, he will also inspect your air filter. You shouldn't need a new filter at every oil change, but you will need to change it regularly. Heed your technician's auto advice if they tell you to change your filter.
An air filter does what its name implies: it filters stuff out of the air. Air is drawn into your engine through the filter because your engine needs air to burn fuel. If the filter weren't there, a lot of dust and debris would come into the vehicle engine with the air when you are driving around Royal Oak. That dust and debris would get hot, burn, and produce all kinds of ash and gumminess that would eventually clog up your engine.
Drop in an air filter and voilá! Problem solved.
But air filters themselves get clogged up with all the junk they clean out of the Royal Oak air. This doesn't allow the junk into the vehicle engine, but it does block up the airflow. A blocked airflow will reduce engine efficiency.
