Air Filters in St. Louis, MO & Collinsville, IL
Don't forget to include maintaining your vehicle's air filters in your maintenance cycle. A clean air filter can help your vehicle to maximize its performance.
Air Filter Service in St. Louis, MO & Collinsville, IL
If you were to wrap a thick towel around your head a couple of times, you’d still be able to breathe. If you left that towel in place and went for a run or a hard workout, though, you’d soon be pretty uncomfortable and struggling to get a good breath.
That’s sort of what it’s like when your vehicle’s air filter becomes clogged.
The engine’s fuel system cannot be contaminated with dust, pollen or other small particulates, so the air filter’s paper element traps these tiny particles before they can be sucked into the engine. Once the air filter gets completely saturated, however, it starts to strangle the engine’s performance, hurting fuel economy and performance both (not unlike that towel experiment).
While the engine’s powertrain control computer can compensate somewhat for a clogged air filter, why put up with poor performance and gas mileage? While you can take the air filter out and whack it against something to dislodge dust, it’s still not really going to be clean. Your air filter is easy to change and inexpensive, and it’s an important part of any comprehensive car care package.
At Master Auto Repair, our service department takes your car’s health seriously, and that includes air filter replacement. If you’ve been noticing a decline in your fuel economy or overall engine performance, that could be what’s at fault. Make an appointment with us at Master Auto Repair, at any of our convenient locations, and let our trained and experienced technicians have a look!
