Engine Air filter and Cabin Filter
Engine Air Filter: The engine air cleaner element, also called the engine air filter prevents dust and other debris from entering the engine. When this gets clogged with debris, the engine performance is compromised.
Replacing the air filter will help the engine breath better and improve fuel economy. Every manufacturer has their own mileage recommendation for replacing the air filter, but the only way to truly know if replacement is needed is to perform a visual inspection of the element. The filter will require more frequent replacement when exposed to dusty roads, lots of tree debris, smoke from forest fires etc. We inspect your engine air filter at every oil change service and will notify you if we determine it is clogged and due for service.
Our air filter replacement service includes vacuuming out your air filter housing to ensure the filter does not become prematurely contaminated with debris that has collected in the housing.
The benefits of keeping your air filter clean:
A clean air filter will increase your fuel economy and help your engine to perform better. A severely clogged air filter can also set a check engine light.
Cabin Air Filter: The cabin air filter provides clean air into the vehicle’s passenger compartment and ensures the air conditioner and heater are performing correctly and efficiently. Keeping this filter clean is especially important for folks that suffer from allergies. Most vehicle manufactures recommend this filter is changed every 15,000 miles. Like the engine air filter, the cabin filter will require more frequent replacement when exposed to dusty roads, lots of tree debris, smoke from forest fires, etc.
Cabin filter add-on service: Automobile air conditioners remove moisture from the air. This moisture can combine with airborne debris and settle in the system evaporator, leading to growth of mold spores and fungi in the vehicle vents. This, in turn, leads to smelly air blown into the vehicle. These contaminants can potentially cause allergic reactions in vehicle owners. If you are noticing a musty smell in your vehicle ask Repair Revolution’s service advisors about our vent cleaning service that kills mold, mildew, fungi, and other odor-causing organisms and keeps your vehicle interior smelling fresh and clean.
