What is it?
The air filter is responsible for trapping impurities before they have a chance to enter the engine.
What does it do?
One of the most important parts of a car’s engine is the air filter. The air filter’s job is to clean the air that goes into the engine. It does this by trapping particles of dirt, dust, and pollen. In addition, air filters also help to improve fuel economy in this way.
Typical Wear and Tear
The life of an air filter depends on a number of factors, including the type of vehicle, the driving conditions, and the quality of the air filter. Some signs that it may be time to replace the air filter include decreased fuel economy, increased engine noise, and increased exhaust emissions. However, depending on driving conditions, some filters may need to be replaced more frequently. For example, if a car is driven in dusty or dirty conditions, the air filter will need to be replaced more often.
