What Does An Engine Air Filter Do?

An engine air filter like the one in your Mazda CX-5 or other vehicle is made to keep dust, pollen, dirt and other debris from accumulating in the engine. Clean engine air is important to keeping your engine performing efficiently and thus your vehicle running optimally and safely on North Wales roads and beyond. The following complications may be a sign it’s time to change the air filter:

  • Black smoke from the exhaust pipe
  • Illuminated service engine light
  • Sluggish acceleration
  • Misfirings and/or dirty spark plugs
  • Smelling gas
  • Unusual engine sounds

How Often Should You Change Engine Air Filter

Rather than a range of time, a range of factors are what dictates how often should you change engine air filter components. The following cases and driving habits contribute to greater collection of debris and particulate matter in the filter and would require more frequent filter changes and inspections.

  • Driving on dusty gravel or dirt back roads
  • Regular off-roading throughout Lansdale and beyond
  • Driving in congested city traffic
  • Regular, quick trips to the store and back
