One component of your vehicle that you may fail to replace often is your air filter. As a part that helps keep the air you breathe clean, it’s important that you replace it when it becomes dirty. Fortunately, our experts at Watrous Mainline are here to lend a helping hand. The staff in both our Service and Parts Departments work together to give you what you need and help you get back on the road in no time. Reserve your appointment today!

The primary function of your air filter is to collect all of the contaminants, pollutants, and other debris that may enter your cabin. It keeps the air inside your vehicle cleaner so that you are not harmed by continuous exposure to some of the toxins in the air. Eventually, however, your air filter will become too full of debris and it will cease to function properly. Some signs of loss of function that you can be on the lookout for include: reduced fuel economy, a dirty air filter, unusual engine sounds, black smoke coming out of the exhaust, and more.

In terms of how often you should replace your air filter, this widely depends on the make of your vehicle. Your best option is to consult your Owner’s Manual for a more specific timeline. You can also easily pull the air filter out and check it. If it’s black in color, it means it’s clogged with debris and other pollutants and needs to be replaced as soon as possible. When you do decide to pull up to one of our service bays, a member of our staff will escort you to our comfortable waiting room while we take care of your ride. Our mechanics will also make sure to check your oil levels, tires, brakes, windshield wipers, and more.

Thanks to our fully-stocked Parts Department, we have air filters for every make and model. Allow one of our staff members to recommend one for you. This takes the guesswork and pressure off of you. If you prefer to install the air filter yourself in your garage, then all you need to do is take a few minutes to fill out our Order Parts form. You can then pick it up on your next trip to our Service Department. It’s that easy!
