Keep Yourself, your passengers, and your engine breathing clean.
Dust, debris, leaves, and other impurities have a way of getting into your vehicle and wreaking havoc. Make sure to get the various filters of your vehicle checked and replaced periodically.
There are four main filters in your vehicle designed to enable flow of various vehicle fluids and prevent impurities from getting into and degrading important engine components. Changing these regularly is integral to keep your car running cleaner for longer, and ensuring a clean, comfortable ride.
Your vehicle’s transmission requires lubricating fluid to operate, and the Transmission Filter prevents dust and debris from accessing these core components of your vehicle. Often, it is wise to replace the pick-up tube, gasket, and seal at the same time the filter is replaced as a part of any vehicle’s preventative maintenance schedule.
Cabin Air Filter
The Cabin Filter prevents impurities from the heating and air conditioning system from going into the air you breathe as you drive. Regular replacement of this filter lengthens the lifespan of your car’s A/C and heating system, and helps avoid visibility issues when driving.
Engine air Filter
A dirty engine air filter can be the difference between a happy, functioning engine, and one in dire need of expensive engine repairs. It prevents dirt, dust, and debris (even leaves in the fall) from getting into your engine and interrupting the combustion process.
Impurities in fuel are typically introduced from your vehicle’s gas tank, as well as during initial transportation to your local gas station. If these impurities aren’t filtered out, your filter can become dirty, causing strain on your fuel injector. A clogged or dirty fuel filter forces your fuel pump to work harder.
