The Basics Behind Air Filter Replacement Services at Advanced Auto Care

An air filter allows air to flow through the intake manifold of an engine outside, where the air mixes with fuel to drive a vehicle. Air filters play a protective role in stopping soil particles, bugs and other pollutants from reaching the engine and causing damage. Unfortunately, over time, engine air filters lose effectiveness and need replacements. Drivers looking to replace an air filter can choose between three different types: paper, foam, and cotton. Paper air filters are typically inexpensive, but usually wear out more easily than their counterparts do. For off-road vehicles, foam filters are a common option, as they have good filtering capabilities. However, if used and left unchecked, they continue to clog engines too. Cotton filters are usually used on racing cars but they can also be used on regular vehicles as after-market upgrades. Regardless of the type of air filter inside your vehicle, changing the air filter as required is necessary. A dirty air filter will adversely affect the gas mileage and trigger a roughly running engine.
