How is the Air Quality in Your Vehicle?

When driving around town, your vehicle's engine needs clean air to burn the fuel – and it needs a lot. In fact, a typical vehicle needs about 216,000 gallons of air for every tank of gas. All that air passes through a filter that catches the dust and dirt. Eventually, the filter gets completely full, and because the filter can only hold so much, dirt starts getting through. At Haigler Auto Services in Montgomery, we want to help you get the best air quality in your vehicle, but first, we want to explain the process of where this dirty air is going. 

How often should you get your filters replaced?

Your car, truck, or SUV is equipped with various filters that keep the air going into your engine clean, the air you breathe in the vehicle, the fuel that supplies your engine, and the oil that keeps it going. How often should you have them replaced? It depends on the filter, the vehicle, and the environment. Here’s what you need to know, from Haigler Auto Services in Montgomery, AL.
