Is your engine missing? Do you feel a hesitation when you stop or a shaking when you pull away from a red light? Has your fuel economy decreased? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, it may be time for an air intake cleaning or a filter replacement.
The filter in your air intake system serves a valuable purpose, filtering out the impurities in the air and protecting the delicate components inside your vehicle. Over time, those impurities start to clog up the filter, and when that happens, your fuel economy goes down, your performance decreases and other problems often occur.
Are You Due for a Change?
Changing the air filter and cleaning the air intake is an integral part of your preventative maintenance, and it should be on your to-do list. Unfortunately, this vital piece of preventative maintenance is easy to overlook, especially if everything seems to be working normally.
Even if you think your vehicle is running the way it should, you should not ignore your air intake system or the filter that keeps it clean. If you cannot remember the last time you had your air intake cleaned or your air filter changed, it is time to check your schedule. If you are overdue for a change or cleaning, just give Fairfax Auto Repair a call or make an appointment. We will provide the cleaning and filter replacement your vehicle needs – and we will keep you on schedule in the future.
Service That Pays for Itself
Not every vehicle service pays for itself, but cleaning the air intake and changing the air filter certainly can. When you drive with a clogged air filter or dirty air intake system, every mile you go is one more mile you are wasting fuel.
A dirty air intake system and clogged filter will reduce the efficiency of your vehicle, and that will drive down your fuel economy. Think about that the next time you drive, then schedule an air intake cleaning and filter replacement with Fairfax Auto Repair today. In the end, this simple piece of preventative maintenance can pay for itself again and again, saving you money in the long run and helping your vehicle last longer.
