AIR FILTER REPLACEMENT
Most automakers suggest engine air filter replacement annually, or every 10,000 to 15,000 miles, as a preventative measure. It may need to be replaced sooner, depending on conditions where you live and drive. It's a good idea to inspect the air filter every time you have the engine oil changed. Air filter replacement is usually suggested when it's clogged with debris, too oily from blow-by, degraded or falling apart, or if it's been damaged.
The engine air filter is usually located under the hood in the air box, and usually doesn't require more than basic hand tools to access. When considering air filter replacement, it is important to use a quality air filter that fits exactly in the air box. Installing the wrong air filter or installing it improperly is just as good as leaving it out.
Have your engine air filter inspected at your next oil change service, and MotorPro Auto Repair will make an honest recommendation regarding your condition.
