Engine Air Filtration Service

A clean engine air filter and air filtration system allows your car’s engine to “breathe” in the clean air it needs to combine with fuel to produce combustible power. Dirt particles that work their way into the engine can cause serious problems. Our Air Filtration Service is designed to keep your automobile’s air filter and other system components clear of dirt and blockages. We check and change the air filter so you can breathe a littler easier too.

Every time a vehicle’s driver presses the gas pedal, they are controlling how much air and fuel enters the engine. The Engine Air Filtration system aids in filtering the air’s contaminants and helps to ensure the correct air/fuel mixture.

The Engine Air Filtration System may consist of the following components:

  • Engine Air Filter
  • Breather Element, if equipped
  • PCV Valve, if equipped

The Engine Air Filter reduces harmful dirt particles from entering the engine’s air intake system where they may cause engine damage.

The Breather Element helps filter the air pulled into the engine crankcase by the Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) system or a metered orifice.

The PCV Valve or metered orifice regulates the flow of crankcase fumes into the intake manifold so they can be burned and help maintain proper cankcase pressure.

As Engine Air Filtration components become restricted, airflow is reduced, which could lead to poor acceleration, reduced engine performance, reduced fuel economy, oil leaks as well as other issues.

We also visually inspect the Engine Air Filtration System components and recommend replacement, as necessary.
