Whether your vehicle's a Chrysler or Dodge, a Jeep or RAM, it has two types of air filters. One, the engine air filter, keeps dirt and debris out of engine parts like the air intake and spark plugs. The other, the cabin air filter, captures airborne contaminants like dust and pollen before they can get into the ducts and vents in the heater and air conditioner.
When Should I Change My Air Filter?
Unfortunately, whatever collects in them can restrict air flow sooner or later, that is, if they don't otherwise degrade from use and age. When that happens, engine problems and car HVAC malfunctions surely follow. So, you're probably wondering what the best way is to tell if the air filters in your vehicle need replacing. It's easy: look for the signs. They include:
- A lit Check Engine light
- A dirty, blocked, or excessively worn filter
- An unclean smell in the cabin
- Unusual engine noises, a misfiring engine, or loss of engine power
- Weak throttle response and acceleration
- Worsening fuel economy and emissions
If you see any such symptoms, your filters probably need changing. Otherwise, they'll need it every 12,000 to 15,000 miles or so, or, at most, every 30,000 miles. There are clear benefits to taking care of that sooner: your fuel efficiency and emissions should return to normal, and your engine should last longer. Consult your owner's manual for a maintenance schedule.
