The Value of Your Cabin and Engine Air Filters

Whether your vehicle’s air filters are part of the air ventilation system inside or in the engine compartment, they play an important part in keeping the environment clear of contaminants. They are usually constructed of a light foam or paper that have very small pores designed to keep larger particles of harmful dust and debris out.

An engine filter sits in its own compartment on the exterior of the engine housing. When it’s changed at appropriate intervals, it serves to help maintain the engine’s metal parts by not contributing to gritty build-up. If you travel a great deal or are in construction sites, it’s a good idea to change the filter more frequently than the recommended 20,000 to 30,000 miles. Likewise, the cabin filter serves to keep the interior air healthy and should be checked regularly according to how and where you drive, but at least every 12,000 miles.
