Three Reasons to Change your Car’s Air Filter

At Fairfax Auto Repair, we provide a variety of services related to your vehicle. No matter what you need, there is a good chance we can step in and provide you with the assistance you require.

While most people understand the benefits of a regular oil change, some never consider the fact that their car’s air filter will not last forever.

Here are three reasons to change your car’s air filter:

1. Better gas mileage. Who doesn’t want each tank of gas to take them a greater distance? Once you change your air filter, you will soon find your gas mileage improving. It doesn’t get any better than that.

2. Better performance. A dirty air filter can hinder your car’s ability to perform at its peak. If your car doesn’t have the same “get up and go,” it may be something as simple as a dirty filter.

3. Less frequent oil changes. Did you know that some of the debris found in motor oil can come from a dirty air filter? If you change your car’s air filter you won’t need to change the oil as often.

Do this: review your car’s owner manual for a clear idea of how often you should replace the air filter. If you are overdue, contact us to setup an appointment. From there, we can change your filter and make other suggestions that will improve the performance and life of your vehicle.
