The Basics Behind Air Filter Replacement Services at Pat's Auto Center

An air filter allows outside air into an engine’s intake manifold, where the air mixes with fuel to power a vehicle. Playing a defensive role, air filters prevent dirt particles, bugs, and other contaminants from entering the engine and causing destruction. Unfortunately, engine air filters lose effectiveness over time and require replacements. Drivers looking to replace an air filter can choose from three common types: paper, foam, and cotton. Paper air filters are usually cheap, but they generally wear out faster than their counterparts. Foam filters are a popular choice for off-road vehicles, because they have strong filtering capabilities. However, they also tend to clog engines if used and left unchecked. Cotton filters are commonly found on race cars, but can be also used as aftermarket upgrades on everyday vehicles. No matter the type of air filter in your vehicle, it is important to replace the air filter as needed. A dirty air filter can negatively affect gas mileage and make an engine run roughly.



Why Should You Have Air Filter Replacement Services Performed at Pat's Auto Center?

To keep your vehicle at its best, it is recommended that you replace your air filter whenever you get your oil changed. However, your environment should also be considered when determining the right time to have your air filter replaced. Dirt roads can cause your air filter to wear more quickly than paved roads. The next time you get an oil change or notice your air filter performing poorly, give us a visit so our service staff can remove your old air filter and install a new one. Our staff understands that a dirty air filter can prevent clean air and fuel from mixing correctly. Let us help you find the right air filter so your vehicle can continue to perform well. We have the right tools to install your new air filter and will work hard to get you back on the road again.
