How Often Should You Change Your Engine Air Filter?

Replacing Air Filter

The engine air filter in your East Baton Rouge car might not be the most technologically advanced component of your car, but it still plays a major role in making your drive a success. The engine air filter does just what the name implies, it filters air coming into your car’s engine, making sure sand, dust, and other debris don’t get involved with the engine’s components. Acura of Baton Rouge is going to give you the full breakdown on how often to change your engine air filter and point you to our parts page while we’re at it.

What Does an Engine Air Filter Do?

The engine air filter is an important part of engine maintenance in Ascension. By using a clean engine air filter, you’ll be keeping particles of dirt, dust, sand, and other nasty things from getting into your engine. This is an important part of keeping your engine working at peak performance. This also means the filter will clog over time, and if you drive too long on a dirty engine air filter, this may happen to your car:

  • Acceleration that isn’t its best
  • Spark plugs that misfire
  • Black smoke coming from your exhaust
  • The Service Engine light comes on
  • Gas mileage that isn’t up to par

How Often To Change Your Engine Air Filter

We recommend that Livingston drivers should change their engine air filter every 30,000 to 45,000 miles. However, there are some cases where you’ll want to change the engine air filter more often than that. For instance, if you drive on a lot of dirt or gravel roads or you go through a lot of traffic, it might be a good idea to frequently check your engine air filter.

In many cases, finding the engine air filter is rather easy. Check your owner’s manual to find out where yours is. And if it’s time for a professional to handle your air filter replacement, schedule service with the experts at Acura of Baton Rouge today.
