Signs to look for to see if it’s time to have your engine air filter replaced
- Decrease in gas mileage: the engine requires good airflow to work properly. When the air filter becomes too clogged with debris and contaminants, the engine has to work harder and it will cause your fuel efficiency to suffer.
- Ignition problems: a dirty filter means air can’t get through to filter the engine, which in turn can affect the entire emission control system of the car. This can clog the spark plugs which will lead to difficulty starting your car.
- Visually apparent dirt and debris in the filter when checking it
Routine Cadillac Maintenance on Your Engine Air Filter
As with every other part of your vehicle, it wears down and needs to be replaced over time due to consistent use. Your engine air filter collects dirt, debris and everything else that your car drives through. The filter keeps these contaminants from entering the engine’s cylinders and allows your car to perform at its best.
If you notice any of the above signs, we highly recommend bringing it in to see one of our professional technicians to take a look at it. In doing so, you are providing your vehicle with the proper care it needs for long-lasting services and replacements.
