How Often to Change Engine Air Filters

Engine air filters resting on top of engine

Whether you’re behind the wheel of a car, truck, or SUV on Centerville roads, you want your engine filter to remain as clear and clean as possible to get the best performance. So, how often should you change engine air filters? A common recommendation is that you should change your engine air filter every 30,000 to 45,000 miles, although this can vary per model. Be sure to check your own owner’s manual for exact estimates. Learn more about how often to change engine air filters with the service experts at Voss Hyundai!

What Does an Engine Air Filter Do?

You may be curious about what your engine air filter does for your vehicle when driving on the streets of Kettering. Your engine air filter keeps dirt, dust, sand, and other harmful particles from getting inside the engine. Over time, as you drive, this filter gets dirtier and clogged, which will slightly hinder your vehicle’s performance, including its gas mileage. Here are some quick signs to know when it’s time to replace your engine air filter:

  • Sluggish acceleration
  • Misfiring spark plugs
  • Black smoke from the exhaust
  • Service Engine light comes on

How Often Should You Change Air Filters?

So, how often should you change air filters for your engine? As mentioned above, you can go by the recommendation of every 30,000 to 45,000 miles or get the exact interval from your owner’s manual. If you use your vehicle for everyday commutes, you can always go by the suggested interval, but if you are more adventurous and use your vehicle for extended trips, off-roading on dirt or gravel roads, or in heavy traffic on hot days, you should change the filter more often. Replacing your air filter is a breeze, as you just open the compartment, remove the old filter, and drop in a new one, or you can always let our service team get it done for you!
