2020 has been a lemon of a year! We are all wearing masks to prevent breathing in the coronavirus and the the historic fires created thick, toxic smoke for days. Like your furnace, your car's filters can easily become thick with debris.
When working properly, the engine filter prevents dust, dirt, and other environmental contaminants from getting into the engine, while providing the air it needs to run. Keeping your engine filter clean prolongs engine life, increases fuel efficiency and improves emissions.
Much like the engine filter keeps contaminants from reaching your engine, the cabin filter helps ensure the air you are breathing inside your vehicle is clean. A clean cabin filter does more than just protect you from pollution and allergens, it has benefits for vehicle performance including AC/heater efficiency, reducing allergens, cleaner air and engine performance.
Clogged filters make your engine work harder than it should, reducing your car's ability to perform as the manufacturer intended. In the long run, changing your car's filters will save you money in costly repairs and improve the drivability of your automobile.
At Sherwood Auto Repair, we always check air filters with every oil change. Whether you are due for an oil change or not, your filters may need to be replaced. If you live in an area impacted by the recent fires, chances are your vehicle's engine filter has been working overtime with the smoke and ash. Schedule an appointment today and let us check your filters. You'll breathe easier knowing you did.
