At InC Auto Repair Center, we believe knowledge is power. That’s why we take the time to share details about not only the “what” but the “why of the operation of your car or truck. If something isn’t working right, Sam or Sheryl will tell you what failed and why something needs repair or replacment.
This month, we are going to share details around the main filters in your vehicle. All the filters: air filters, cabin filters, as well as your fuel induction systems. Time to get nerdy about filters friends!
Air Filters – Part 1
What exactly is the purpose of an air filter in your engine? It’s pretty important. Air filters prevent small particles from entering the engine and causing potentially expensive damage. Replacing a clogged or dirty air filter can increase fuel efficiency. With gas prices rising we want to get the most mileage we can out of every tank of gas.
Don’t worry, we check those air filters as part of our 32-point vehicle health & safety evaluation. We perform that inspection every time you bring your car or truck in for an oil change. If you can’t remember when you had your last oil change, give us a call. We’ll get you on the schedule soon!
Air Filters – Part 2
What problems can a dirty air filter cause? For starters, a clogged air filter can decrease the amount of oxygen in your engine. Yes, your enginge needs oxygen. Why? It needs it to burn fuel efficiently. What happens if it doesn’t have enough? It will cause the engine to miss or rough idle, eventually leading to more costly repairs.
We are strong advocates for regular oil changes. It isn’t just a quick oil change process here at InC Auto Repair. It’s a chance for our crew to take a good look under the hood of your car. Especially as we conduct our 32-point vehicle health & safety evaluation.
