AIR FILTER


Construction of the engine is designed so that not only the fuel is needed for proper functioning of the whole structure. There is also an air filter, through which the air goes to the engine, practically free of impurities. A seemingly trivial part, but very important for proper operation of the car, because the clogged air filter can lead to disruptions in the operation of the engine.

It’s worth to take care of all elements of the induction system and, if necessary, replace the air filter in the workshop.

Replacing the filter >>> When you replace the air filter in your car?

Theory says, that you should replace filter after about 10 to 20 thousand kilometers.

In some manuals, recommendations concern up to 30-40 thousand kilometers, but if you mainly driving around town or you move among the extremely dusty places, you have to do it more often.

In practice, we should replace the air filter whenever we make exchanges in the oil filter and the oil itself. It should always be controlled and from time to time to see how the filter looks. The difference between a clogged and clean filter is not difficult to observe.

Consequences >>> When the air filter is used?

The driver, who did not notice the poor condition of the air filter will initially feel financial losses, because of the higher fuel consumption, which greatly exceeds the cost of purchasing a new filter. Unclean filter prevents the flow of the appropriate amount of air, that devastates the proper combustion and loss of power, and this in turn will result in higher combustion mixture of air and gasoline or diesel. This will result in exhaust emission tests to increase their level.

Why replace the air filter on the site?

Best way is to ask for professional help. Professionals, while placing the new filter will make sure to tightly close the lid (it happens that there is a need for special tools for assembly/disassembly systems, high-speed connections). If there’s a need, a mechanic will replace worn closing parts with new ones. Then, both edges of the housing, cover and pipe will fit together perfectly, which will allow to drive thousand more kilometers without surprises, far from home.
