Engine Air Filter Replacement Service

Everyone knows they should have their vehicle's filters changed periodically. However, with different types of filters in a car or truck, it can be difficult to know when it is the best time to change each of them. 

The team at Germain Ford of Columbus can help you understand your vehicle's maintenance schedule so that it is always performing at optimal levels.

What is an Engine Air Filter Replacement Service?

The engine air filter is on the front lines every day protecting the engine from bugs, grime, dirt, and sand. Occasionally, they need to be replaced. Ford recommends changing all of the filters every 15-30,000 miles. This includes the air, oil, fuel and cabin air filters. Many recommend changing the filters at every oil change.

What Happens If I get an Engine Air Filter Replacement Now?

Not changing the filters can lead to serious engine damage at worst and at least shortening the lifespan of the vehicle. There has to be some balance, though. Your filter may not need to be changed at every oil change. It does, however, need to be inspected by a certified technician. Some mechanics will attempt to get you to buy a new air filter, even when you don't need it because it is a simple procedure for them. While frequently changing the air filter won't cause the engine any harm, it's unnecessary and can hurt your wallet. It is also important to note that some vehicles will need to have their filters changed more frequently. Those who live in dusty or sandy areas will find that their air filters get dirty much faster.
