Triangle Auto Service Engine Air Filter Replacement

When your experienced Triangle Auto Service service adviser technician changes your oil, he will also inspect your air filter. You shouldnít need a new filter at every oil change, but you will need to change it regularly. Heed your service professionalís auto advice if they tell you to change your filter. Itís not pricey, and it makes a big difference to your vehicle.

An air filter does what its name implies: it filters stuff out of the air. Air is drawn into your engine through the filter because your engine needs air to burn fuel. If the filter werenít there, a lot of dust and debris would come into the engine with the air. That dust and debris would get hot, burn, and produce all kinds of ash and gumminess that would eventually clog up your engine.
Drop in an air filter and voilŠ! Problem solved.
But air filters themselves get clogged up with all the junk they clean out of the Chicago air. This doesnít allow the junk into the engine, but it does block up the airflow. A blocked airflow will reduce engine efficiency.

An engine needs about 12,000 gallons of air to burn just one gallon of gasoline. Think of a runner. If he is breathing well, he can run well. But if he has a lung condition, he wonít be able to generate the oxygen necessary to keep his cells powered up. He wonít be able to run at peak efficiency.

Or consider a vacuum cleaner. Even without the light, you can tell when the vacuum bag is full because the machine just doesnít clean anymore. Change the bag and its efficiency immediately improves.

So keep your vehicle breathing well by keeping its air filter clean. Thatís good car care.

Chicago car owners who get a charge out of the feeling of power in their engine might consider upgrading their air filter. Talk to your honest Triangle Auto Service service professional. Premium air filters have been proven to increase horsepower and torque. So with the cost of a premium air filter, you can increase the horsepower in your engine ó thereís no cheaper way to do that!

Itís also one of the least expensive and simplest elements of vital routine preventive maintenance Ė and protects against damage to expensive electronic systems. No Chicago resident should have an excuse to drive around Chicago roads and interstates with a dirty air filter.
