Keep Your East Greenbush Car Breathing Free: Engine Air Filter

Posted July 24, 2022 9:45 AM

Hey East Greenbush - this is something really amazing: Your vehicle uses 12,000 times as much air as fuel when you drive it. All of that air has to be filtered to keep your engine clean.

That's like 100 gallons (380 liters) of air every block! The engine air filter is just another example of a very important but inexpensive part that has to do a tremendous amount of work. And when it works, everything goes well. But, when it doesn't, well, it can lead to problems. Of course, your vehicle manufacturer recommends how often to change your air filter. But like most service intervals, where and how you drive your vehicle in NY affects when your filter needs to be changed.

Dusty conditions around East Greenbush or polluted city driving means you'll need to change your filter more often. Our trained professionals at Pro Tech Tire & Auto can check your filter for you. In fact, it's often a routine part of an oil change.

When you think about it, a clogged air filter won't allow as much air through as a clean filter. Your vehicle needs this air to efficiently burn its fuel, giving you better fuel economy and performance.

Dirtier filters don't work as well as clean ones. A filter can only hold so much; after that, it allows dirt to pass right into your engine. Air filters come in all shapes and sizes. They also come in different grades. There are high performance air filters available for most vehicles. These high performance filters cost a little more, but they increase horsepower and may improve fuel economy to boot.

So it's important for East Greenbush drivers to make sure and have their air filter checked. If it needs replacing, it doesn't cost very much at Pro Tech Tire & Auto in East Greenbush and it should easily pay for itself in better fuel economy before your next oil change.

Testimonials

, 06/20/2022
My husband and I experienced a blowout of one of our trailer tires on the highway. With traffic speeding by at 70 miles an hour my husband got ready to change the tire. James from Pro Tech happened by and parked behind us in his truck with lights blinking to help let oncoming traffic realize we were there. While he couldn't stay the whole time he did let us know Pro Tech would have a replacement trailer tire so that we'd still have a spare. When we got to Pro Tech James and Mike (the owner) helped us get the spare back in place, removed the blown tire from the bed of our truck and checked out the damage to our trailer septic system. Zip ties were applied to keep the remaining piping from dragging. They went above and beyond to help us and we were able to continue on to our campground 2 1/2 more hours away. Thank you!!!!
