Air Filter - How Often Should I Replace


To decide if your air filter should to be changed remove the air filter housing retainer clips or screws and remove the filter. Put the filter between a bright light and your site of vision. If you can not see light though the filter, then air isn't going to be able to pass though it either. It is time to replace the filter. Imagine the amount of air processed through your engine in the course of driving 3,000 miles. If you choose an inferior style air filter you are allowing dirt particles to enter your engine which cause premature wear and could lead to catastrophic engine failure. It is a good idea to make checking your air filter a habit at each oil service.
