Clean Air for Your Engine: A New Engine Air Filter at All Night Auto Repair

All of us Livonia drivers know we have to get the oil changed in our SUVs periodically. That’s just part of good car care. But when Detroit service advisors change your oil, they also usually inspect your air filter. That’s why they sometimes let you know that your air filter needs to be changed before releasing your SUV.

Don’t just chock this up to trying to sell you something else. Farmington motorists really do need to change their air filter when it gets dirty. You can check your owner’s manual to see how often your air filter should need to be changed, but remember, if you live in an area in Michigan with poor air quality, or if you drive a lot or drive under harsh conditions in the Detroit area, you may need to change that filter more often than is recommended.

Changing an air filter isn’t guesswork. If a filter’s dirty, it needs to be replaced. Air filters aren’t very expensive at All Night Auto Repair in Livonia. But the problems they cause if Livonia auto owners don’t change them can get to be costly.

For every gallon of gas your SUV burns, it needs 12,000 gallons of air. Clean filters allow better airflow into your engine, which means that your engine will get more air more quickly. That means your SUV engine runs more efficiently.

Dirty air filters cut airflow to your engine. All the debris in the filter clogs up the spaces the air needs to pass through to get to the engine. This dirty air can damage costly electronic components.

If you are in tune with your SUV, you’ll notice a difference when you change a really dirty air filter for a clean one. Your SUV may actually purr for you again. Its performance improves when it has a new, clean filter. So remember, changing your air filter is one of the most essential elements of preventive maintenance. At All Night Auto Repair , it’s inexpensive, it’s effective, and it’s critical.
