An important part of maintaining your car properly is keeping up on air and fuel filter replacement, as well as other new filters your vehicle may require. Various filters will need to be replaced throughout the year and the mechanics at Uncle Al’s Auto Repair can assist you when assessing your car’s filter replacement maintenance.
People often wonder how often they should change their car’s air filters. That depends on the type of filter you have and the type of roads you drive on. If you often drive back roads with a lot of dirt and gravel, you may have to change your air filter more often than the average city driver. The important thing is to have it changed before the dirt restricts air flow. Keeping up on your auto air filter replacement will prevent dirt and debris from getting to your engine, improve gas millage and maintain optimal performance, therefore saving you money in the long run.
Auto cabin filter replacements keep the inside of your ride as clean as possible. Removing contaminates like pollen, bacteria, gas exhaust and dust from the air, your car’s cabin filter works hard at keeping your vehicle’s interior air clean. If the filter gets too clogged with dirt and debris without being replaced, it will affect the purity of the air in your car cabin. When high allergen season is near it’s a good idea to have your cabin filter checked and replaced as needed.
A fuel filter that is very dirty and overdue for replacement can affect your engine’s performance. It can cause the engine to misfire or even stop all together.
