Your car’s filters, belts, and fluids need regular replacement and your engine filter is no different. Over time your car’s engine air filter becomes clogged with dirt and can also develop holes or tearing. This not only makes your engine less efficient it also prevents the blocking of harmful debris from entering and damaging your engine.
Over time a dirty engine air filter can cause damage to your car’s engine. If ignored entirely the filter itself can completely fail to allow dirt and other types of road debris into your engine and damaging important parts such as the cylinders. This can lead to costly repairs and greatly reduce your engine’s lifespan. In general, you should have your car’s engine air filter replaced every 15,000 to 30,000 miles. However, it is important to note your environment can reduce your engine air filter lifespan If you live in a dusty area, for example, your engine air filter is unlikely to last a full 30,000 miles.
