Engine Air Filter Replacement

Hand removing cabin air filter


Determining how often you should schedule an engine air filter replacement is a crucial aspect of vehicle maintenance, just as essential as monitoring your brake fluid. While the recommended interval may vary depending on your vehicle’s make and model, a general guideline suggests changing your air filter every 30,000 to 45,000 miles.

We advise consulting your specific make and model’s user manual for precise details on the optimal replacement interval for your engine air filter. Additionally, our dedicated service center can provide you with more tailored information regarding your air filter, ensuring you remain on track with your vehicle’s maintenance schedule.

What Does an Engine Air Filter Do for Your Car?

An air filter, like your air filter, serves as a barrier that prevents dirt, dust, sand, and various other contaminants from entering your engine. Over time, these filters can become soiled and obstructed, leading to a decrease in their effectiveness. Several common signs indicate the need for an engine air filter replacement:


  • Your Service Engine light comes on
  • Black smoke from the exhaust
  • Sluggish acceleration
  • Misfiring spark plugs


A clogged or dirty air filter can also impact fuel efficiency, although this effect generally occurs gradually and may not be immediately noticeable.
