AIR FILTERS IN CDA
Most people probably don't give their car's air filter much thought when it comes to maintenance, but it's an essential part that needs to be checked and replaced on a regular basis. Air filters can be changed at Knudtsen Chevrolet in Post Falls if you reside in CDA.
What serves as an air filter?
To avoid causing harm to the engine, the air that is drawn into it must be pure. The air filter in your car keeps the engine from being contaminated by tiny dust, dirt, and other impurities. These particles may enter the engine, impairing it's operation and risking costly engine damage. Paper is pleated to create the air filter, which over time gets soiled and blocked. When this occurs, a replacement will be required. Visit our service center for prompt service; Knudtsen Chevrolet has been inspecting and replacing air filters in CDA for some time.
What will happen if I don't replace the air filter in my automobile? A soiled, blocked air filter is unable to perform its function effectively. Reduced fuel economy, increased pollutants, and decreased engine performance result from the engine having to work harder. Also possible is a sluggish acceleration. The U.S. Department of Energy claims that a clogged air filter might result in a 6 to 11% reduction in acceleration. You might not notice the lowered acceleration because it will be so gradual. Additionally, it may result in engine wear, which shortens the engine's lifespan.
How often should I replace the air filter in my car?
It's wise to consult your owner's manual for the recommended maintenance schedule for your specific vehicle as different manufacturers may have different recommendations on replacing the engine's air filter. Other manufacturers specify more frequent intervals, whereas Chevrolet advises replacing the oil filter every 45,000 miles. You should change the filter more frequently if you drive in congested areas, hot weather, or on dusty surfaces like dirt or gravel roads.
What kind of air filter is required for my car?
While most engine air filters share a similar appearance, their quality varies. High-density materials with more pleats and smaller holes are used to create high-quality filters. This offers higher engine safety. When you bring your car to the Knudtsen Chevrolet Service Center, we'll replace the engine air filter, using a high-quality filter that's appropriate for your car.
How much time does changing the air filter take?
The majority of air filters may be changed rather fast. In order to reduce space, some manufacturers put the filters in harder-to-reach places. It will take a little longer to replace your car's air filter if it is difficult to get to.
