Every Denver car owner who has taken their car in for an oil change has been told at one time or another, that their engine air filter is dirty. Here is what goes into the determination of when the air filter needs to be changed. First, your vehicles owner’s manual will have a recommendation of when to change the filter. Second, a visual inspection by your service technician may determine that your filter is visibly dirty and needs to be changed.
So between your vehicle owner’s manual and your technician’s inspection there’s really no guesswork involved.
Now, most air filters purchased in Denver don’t cost a lot to replace. It’s just that car owners hate getting caught with an unexpected expense. On the plus side though, changing a dirty air filter at Express Car Care can often save enough on gas to pay for itself before your next oil change.
Think about a dirty furnace filter in your home. When it’s all clogged up, enough clean air can’t get through. In your vehicle, that means that your engine can’t get as much air as it needs to burn the fuel efficiently. So it makes do with less air and has to use more gas to move your vehicle around on the roads.
Your vehicle actually needs about 12,000 gallons of air for every gallon of gas it burns. Engine air filters don’t cost much and provide clean air for your engine. When it’s time to change yours, just get it done. You’ll save money, protect your engine and get better performance.
