Air Filter Replacement Service

Particles like mold, pollen, dirt, and other forms of debris can easily harm engine parts by gunking up the engine’s oil and causing parts to lock up. There are generally two main types of air filters that your car has, the engine air filter and the cabin air filter. The engine air filter keeps the debris from the road and air from getting pulled in letting any of the debris enter the engine system. The cabin air filter is in place to clean and filtrate the air that we breathe inside the car preventing any pollutants from entering our lungs. This air is used for the car’s air conditioning and heating system. It is important to replace both filters when they are needed. At ER Autocare in Plains City, OH, we will inspect both air filters during each oil change and inform you if they need replacement.

Why replace the Air Filter?

ER Autocare recommends replacing your cabin and engine air filters because dirt and particles can easily hurt engine parts, contribute to a decrease in automotive performance, void airflow into the cabin, and even hurt our lungs.

You may need to replace your Air Filter if you notice any of the following:

  • Decrease in average MPG
  • Engine misfire
  • Abnormal engine noises
  • Illumination of the check engine light
  • Major reduction in horsepower
  • Black smoke coming out the tailpipe
  • The smell of gasoline when the car starts
  • Failing emissions
  • Odd, wet, or musty smells when the AC is on

How often does an air filter need to be changed?

We at ER Autocare suggest that the cabin air filter be changed every 12,000 miles, or at least yearly. Engine air filters should be spot-checked often and need to be changed every 3,000 – 10,000 miles or at least with every oil change. Depending on road conditions, dirty roadways, off-roading, construction zones, or even icy roadways treated with ice salt, could require you to change your air filters more often.
