All that air passes through a filter that catches the dust and dirt. Eventually the filter will get completely full. Because the filter can only hold so much, the dirt starts getting through. This dirty air passes through the mass airflow sensor and starts to accumulate on the delicate sensor element. The mass airflow sensor measures how much air is getting into your engine. When the airflow reading is incorrect, your car engine doesn’t get the proper amount of fuel. The engine runs rough and doesn’t perform as well as it should.
Eventually, the sensor is so damaged it needs to be replaced – which is expensive. In fact you could buy a case or two of air filters for the price of a sensor replacement.
Of course, that dirty air keeps on going through to your engine where it is burned along with the fuel, which gets your combustion chamber dirty and increases harmful exhaust emissions – not a good thing for Denver air quality, not to mention our lungs.
When your Express Car Care service adviser brings out your dirty air filter and recommends a replacement, remember the cost and poor performance that can be waiting for you down the road if you neglect this simple Express Car Care service. Ask your friendly service tech if it’s time to replace your engine air filter.
