Cabin Air Filter
What is an air filter? The cabin air filter stops airborne contaminants from being circulated into the vehicles passenger area and helps to minimize additioanl wear and tear on the heating and A/C system. The Pro Oil Change located at 5797 200 Street can help replace your air filter during your next visit.
Cabin filters are used in most newer vehicles to help clean the air in the passenger compartment of the vehicle.
When your air filter is dirty, your engine is forced to work harder, resulting in poor fuel economy, higher emissions and, possibly, a loss of engine power. In turn, as a worst-case scenario, a clogged cabin air filter can lead to under-performance of the A/C system, causing weak air flow from the cabin vents.
A dirty or plugged cabin filter can cause reduced air flow inside the passenger cabin and poor performance of the air conditioning and heater units.
If your air filter gets too dirty or clogged, your engine won't be able to suck enough air into the combustion chambers. The engine will then run rich (too much gas and not enough air). When this happens, your vehicle may lose power and the engine may run roughly. Additionally, your "Check Engine" warning light may come on.
