Any engine that uses an internal combustion engine needs air to operate. This is because there is no air, especially oxygen, and fuels like gasoline and diesel cannot burn and do not power the engine.
The trick is that not all old tune bombs work. In modern cars, air must be purified before being drawn into the intake static pressure box and combustion chamber of the engine. If you don't do this, there is a risk that dust, dirt and debris will quickly block the engine, resulting in poor performance and possibly shortening the life of the car. The foreign particles act as abrasives on the metal parts of the engine, damaging the engine bearings, piston rings and cylinders.
In addition, modern engines rely on precise air to fuel ratios. When the engine's air is low, the fuel mixture is considered "too rich", which actually adds extra pressure to the engine.
Fortunately, we have an engine air filter that allows the right amount of air to enter the intake of our car engine while capturing the grit, which can cause damage to our engine. But even the best air filters can only withstand so much damage from the outside environment.
So, as a car owner, how do you know when to change the air filter?
It all depends on the strength of the use of the car parts and under what conditions. If the car is widely used in dusty and harsh environments (think of stopping and stopping during construction in the city), then replacing the air filter more frequently will be justified. On the other hand, if you happen to be an old woman who only drives on Sunday, you don't have to change the air filter frequently.
Some experts recommend replacing the air filter every 3,000 miles (4828 km) while changing the oil.
Others say that this is a bit too much. You should use your judgment to visually check the air filter. When it looks dirty, replace it.
Of course, your best bet is to check the owner's manual, which has detailed vehicle usage guidelines. Then change the type and frequency of the filter as recommended by the manufacturer.
For example, General Motors recommends that many of its models replace air filters at 60,000 miles (96,561 km). But a car expert said that because he drives a different place, he changes the car's air filter every two years, or change the 24,000 miles (38,624 km) air filter.
In any case, it is a wise and positive policy to check the air filter at least every 6,000 miles (9656 km). It doesn't cost a penny to see, but it can save you expensive repairs in the future!
