Your vehicle’s air filter prevents harmful debris, dirt and contaminants from entering your engine. A good air filter reduces vehicle costs and extends the life of the vehicle.
But air filters will eventually age and become contaminated with pollutants and debris. In that case, the filter loses its effectiveness and hinders the performance of the parts it is supposed to protect.
When your air filter is not cleaned well, your engine is forced to work harder, resulting in poor fuel economy, higher emissions and, in the long run, a loss of engine power.
