Keep Your Car Breathing Well: Change the Air Filters


You need clean air to breathe and so does your car, and a vehicle's air filters make that possible. The non-profit Car Care Council reminds car owners to have the engine and cabin air filters inspected and changed regularly to ensure vehicle longevity and interior comfort.

"Air filters are your vehicle's first line of defense against contaminants that reduce cabin air quality and negatively impact engine performance," said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. "Community car care events held throughout the country reveal that nearly one out of five vehicles is in need of air filter replacement, so it's evident that motorists often overlook this simple, yet important service."

The vehicle's engine air filter traps dirt particles that can cause damage to engine cylinders, cylinder walls, pistons, piston rings and bearings, leading to the engine losing power. The air filter also plays a critical role in keeping pollutants from contaminating the airflow sensor on fuel-injected cars. A normal wear item that requires regular checks and replacement, air filters should be inspected at each oil change and replaced annually or when showing other signs of contamination.

The cabin air filter is responsible for cleaning the air entering the passenger compartment. Under normal circumstances, it helps trap pollen, bacteria, dust and exhaust gases that may find their way into a vehicle's heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system, compromising interior air quality and damaging the system. Most cabin air filters are accessed through the panel in the HVAC housing, which may be under the hood or placed within the interior of the vehicle. A cabin air filter should not be cleaned and reinstalled. Instead, it should be replaced every 12,00 to 15,000 miles or per the owner's manual.

To help motorists "be car care aware," the Car Care Council has free tools available on its website, including a personalized service schedule, an 80-page Car Care Guide in English and Spanish, and a Car Care Minute video about cabin air filters.

The Kwik Kar team saved me thousands by letting me purchase my own part when the dealership wanted to replace the entire wiring harness (over $4000.00 with parts and labor), when all I needed was on wire replaced (a $48.00 part and $145.00 labor.) I will continue to go to Kwik Kar!!!! I wish I could give them 10 stars.

My favorite thing about this place is that they're honest. I brought my car in before and they'd tell me "no, you've got at least another year before you need that done" or "no, problems there." Plus, they're friendly and fast. No problems in 5+ years.
