AIR FILTER OVERVIEW
YOU DESERVE FRESH AIR
Many people may not be aware that you even need to replace your cabin air filter. Failing to do so can result in a number of issues: it affects the quality of air that you inhale in the vehicle, as it’s the main gateway through which air enters the cabin. Delaying the interval between filter replacements allows contaminants and allergens into the cabin. Additionally, lack of routine air filter replacements can also contribute to decreased efficiency and increased emissions, as your vehicle requires more energy to force air through a dirty filter. To help prevent such issues, bring your vehicle in for an air filter replacement here at Cardinale Mazda.
Your Mazda’s engine needs air to be scrubbed of dirty and contaminants before entering the combustion system. Delaying engine air filter replacement can significantly degrade engine performance and efficiency. A dirty engine air filter starves your engine of oxygen it needs for effective combustion. In addition to reducing performance, a dirty engine air filter reduces efficiency by degrading even idle combustion force and dirtying combustion cylinders, deteriorating your engine’s effectiveness while forcing it to have to work harder to force air through the intake system.
A new vehicle is often the second most expensive purchase that you will make in your lifetime, and if you want to make sure that it runs as long as you expect it to, one of the best ways of guaranteeing longevity is to have it serviced by people who are specifically trained to deal with the brand of vehicle you drive.
