The air filter keeps your engine clean and free of debris and contaminants that can damage components. Air filters are one of the least expensive components in your vehicle and it is also one of the easiest to replace. Your air filter is also easy to inspect, and it comes in many shapes and sizes, depending on the type of vehicle you drive. When the filter gets dirty, it doesn’t allow enough air to get into the system.
Air filters are easy to inspect to determine cleanliness. Some larger vehicles like big trucks and other commercial vehicles have an air filter indicator light that will illuminate if there is an issue or if it is time for service. Even without the indicator light, it is easy to tell if your filter is dirty by simply removing the filter and looking at it to see if it is free of dust and debris. Notice how much dirt and grime is there, and if the filter is now ineffective. You can hold up to the light and see how much light passes through at least half of the air filter. You can check your owner’s manual to find out how often maintenance is needed on air filters as well as most other components and systems on or in your vehicle.
Some problems and signs that you may need a new filter include a general reduction in function and poor engine performance. Your engine may seem sluggish when you press on the accelerator or when you’re driving down the highway. You may notice that the acceleration is less responsive, or that the engine has started misfiring. The engine may begin making strange noises or you may feel unusual vibrations as you pick up speed. Any of these can be a sign that you need a new air filter.
