The engine of any vehicle is a very complex machine with many moving parts that work in tandem to get you from point A to point B. The better maintained each and every part, the better the overall health of your engine will be. One of the most important parts of your engine is your engine’s air filter. The engine air filter is responsible for filtering out the air that gets into the engine making sure the air that mixes with fuel and causes combustion for the pistons is as clean as possible. The engine air filter is one of the cheaper parts to maintain and, if neglected, can cause major problems down the road.

There are many different ways to identify if your engine air filter is in need of service. The best way to stay on top of the health of your engine’s air filter is to get it checked when you go in for regular maintenance. Service pros can easily identify and change an air filter that is old or clogged. You can also spot a dirty air filter yourself from home. A visual inspection is a good way to find out about the health of your engine air filter. If the air filter looks caked with dirt or debris or just has an overall gritty look, it may be time for service. You can also do the “light test.” The light test is when you remove the filter and hold it up to a light, if the light is obstructed or not coming through clearly, it may mean your air filter is clogged and needs to be replaced.
The engine air filter is an extremely important part of your vehicle’s overall health. It is also a very easy component to stay on top of and is generally one of the easier parts to replace. Engine air filters come in all different shapes and sizes so if you decided to change your own at home, make sure to check your vehicle’s owner manual to see what kind fits your vehicle. If the engine air filter becomes too clogged, harmful particulates and debris can get into your engine and cause major, expensive damage. This is why it is a good idea to make sure your engine air filter is clean and in working order.
How often you should change your engine air filter depends on several different factors, such as the climate you live in and the amount you use your vehicle. Most manufacturers will have a suggested timeframe to change your specific vehicle’s engine air filter, but usually, it is a good idea to have your air filter checked or replaced every 5,000 to 7,000 miles. It is still a good idea to check your owner’s manual to see what the manufacturer suggests.
