Your car doesn’t run on fuel alone—it requires a precise mixture of fuel and air in order to run properly. The air filter ensures this mixture is at the right ratio, and filters out any dust or particulate that could harm your engine.
As your car air filter ages, it becomes clogged with debris and is less able to protect your engine. Failing to replace your engine filter regularly can lead to fouled spark plugs, reduced gas mileage, rough idling and engine failure.
But when do you need to replace your filter? The old rule of thumb was to change your auto air filter every 15-30,000 miles. Realistically, you should have your air filter checked regularly during your routine oil changes and replaced as needed.
