Why you should change your air filter

Auto Shop in ManchesterAt Bob & Sons Automotive we check the engine air filter on every vehicle we see because we know how important it is for the engine in your vehicle to breathe properly.

Imagine you are a disciplined, powerful, long-distance runner. Imagine you take great care of yourself in staying fit, eating right, and exercising regularly. Then imagine you’re on a long stretch of road and you want to open up the throttle and go fast, just then you start to feel a restriction in your airway and you can’t get the oxygen you need to get optimal performance. Can you picture this?

This is what it feels like for your engine when it can’t get the air it needs to perform the way it was intended to. When air filters are not replaced, they get clogged with dirt and debris.

There are many benefits for your vehicle when replacing your air filter regularly. Those benefits include better gas mileage, reduced emissions, improved acceleration, increased engine life and overall improved drivability.

For each gallon of fuel burned, the engine uses up to 10,000 gallons of air; this is why it is easy to understand how vital a clean air filter is to your motor vehicle.

Replacing your vehicle’s engine air filter is one of the most cost-effective ways to maintain your vehicle’s high performance.
