When Should I change my car airfilter?
A car’s air filter serves two purposes. The first function is to filter out dirt, debris and other contaminants that can enter an engine and potentially cause damage. An air filter's other primary function is to allow adequate air to flow into the engine; a car's engine requires air for the internal combustion process which produces the power needed to move the vehicle.
Most types of automotive air filters are designed to be easily replaced and should be changed out periodically to help maintain a vehicle and keep it in top running condition. Most car manufacturers suggest that the air filter in a vehicle be changed every 10,000 to 15,000 miles. However, for people that live in areas where a lot of dust is present or where they must frequently travel on dirt or gravel roads, a vehicle's air filter will need to be replaced more often.
