The cabin air filter cleans the air in the passenger compartment and filters both pollen and debris from the air you breathe. The Pro Oil Change in Bracebridge can help replace your cabin air filter during your next visit. Replacing the cabin air filter provides cleaner air in the passenger cabin, better running heating and air conditioning systems and prevents the possible blower fan failure.
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.
While a soiled cabin air filter can affect the AC system, a dirty engine air filter can cause engine performance problems. Replacing an old engine air filter can go a long way towards increasing the vehicle's efficiency. In fact, changing a dirty engine filter can improve gas mileage by as much as 10%.
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.
