Filters

Why it is important:

Cabin air filters are most often overlooked and can be found in 80% of vehicles. When you are in your car driving, the air you are breathing comes into the vehicle through the cabin air filter. The inside of your car/truck can be six times dirtier than the air on the road outside, which can be making you sick. So replacing your cabin air filter is important to keep nasty microscopic allergens, odor-causing bacteria, pollutants and environmental toxins out of the air you breathe. By replacing your cabin air filter, you will feel better, as the filter will capture contaminants such as soot, dirt, pollen and airborne gasses.

If you are unsure where your cabin air filter is you can look in your owner’s guide or come into the shop and we would be happy to help you.

 

Engine Air Filters

464A1864 (Small)

Why it is important:

The air filter provides clean air to a vehicle’s carburetion system, and, if it becomes clogged or dirty, it can cause your car to idle or run roughly and reduce gas mileage. The PCV valve helps prevent the release of gas fumes from the engine. If it becomes blocked or clogged, it can cause oil leaks and promote the formation of sludge in the engine.

 Fuel Filters

 

Why it is important:

As the fuel enters your engine, it passes through your fuel filter. A dirty fuel filter that maybe clogged with dirt can decrease the performance of your fuel injector resulting in erratic performance, poor gas mileage and in extreme cases engine shut down. By replacing your fuel filter at your vehicle’s recommended interval, you will experience many benefits and ultimately a more reliable vehicle. Typically around every 24,000 km and 48,000 km the fuel filter should be changed.
