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 97 Young St. 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.
The filter itself is a cellulose or paper based unit that comes in various sizes and is specific to the make and model of the vehicle itself.
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.
