Every modern car has four main filters: the Cabin filter, Oil filter, Fuel filter and Air filter.
The function of all these filters is to enable flows and catch impurities: the dust and contaminants in the air, the impurities in the fuel or the dirt in the motor oil. If your car filters are not replaced on time, they will not operate at optimal levels and in the end this will lead to poor performance of the relate mechanics. Replacing your filters at the recommended service intervals will lead to a system that performs at optimal levels ensuring longevity and freshness.
The timeline for replacing the #EngineAirFilter varies based on your car manufacturer’s guidelines, but in general it is between 15,000 Kilometers and 45,000 Kilometers depending on the make, model and age of your vehicle. Every 30,000 kilometers is somewhat of an industry average. Find out more about what an Engine Air Filter is by clicking here
Cabin Air Filter
The #CabinAirFilter replacement schedule is also included in your car’s owner’s manual, and varies from car to car, but generally it needs to be replaced every 15,000 Kilometers or so. Some telltale signs that it is time to replace your cabin air filter are unpleasant odors coming from your heating and cooling vents, and rattling noises when running heat or air conditioning. Weak airflow is another sign that your cabin air filter may be clogged—you will notice that your windows start fogging up on the inside. Find out more about what a Cabin Filter is by clicking here
The #OilFilter in your car should be changed along with the car’s oil, which should be done according to the car manufacturer’s recommendations. In general, oil changes should be done every 8,000 to 10,00 Kilometers, or every six months, whichever comes first. If you drive in extreme conditions, such as on dusty roads or in very high temperatures, you should have your oil and oil filter changed more frequently.
