To ensure your car continues to run well, be sure you know how to take care of its many filters. Not sure what they are or what they do? This post can help you learn more about them.

Filters for Your Car

Have you ever wondered how your vehicle's oil stays clean for so long or how the air in you car's cabin stays clean even while driving through tons on dust? The filters in your vehicle have a lot to do with this. To learn more about the types of filters in your car and what they do, check out the following information.

Air Filter

Your vehicle's air filter ensures combustion is able to occur properly in your engine, helping your car to continue running smoothly. But, what exactly does it do? Well, air needs to taken into your engine in order for combustion to even occur. However, when air is pulled into your engine it may contain certain contaminants like dirt, dust, and other abrasive particles. Your air filter helps trap these particles so that the air used for combustion is cleaner. Your air filter may be made of a few different materials, some of them can be cleaned and used for a longer period of time before finally having to be changed. Generally speaking, your air filter should be changed at least once a year. If you drive through dusty roads or heavily polluted areas often, it may be necessary to change your air filter more often.

Oil Filter

We're sure you already know just how important it is to change your vehicle's oil regularly, but did you know you also have to change your oil filter? Most mechanics will change both when taking care of this service for you because it can help your oil stay cleaner for longer. Your oil filter traps particles that can contaminate your oil and cause it to go bad faster. So, as your oil travels through your engine it also passes through the filter. Over time, your filter will start to fill up and will no longer be able to trap any more particles. This means your oil will end up quite dirty and won't be able to perform its job well. To keep you oil cleaner for longer, change your oil filter with every oil change. This makes sense because if you're putting clean oil in your car but your filter is already dirty, it may not be able to keep your oil clean for very long. Keeping your car in the best shape takes a bit of work, but it's all worth it in the end.

Fuel Filter

Although the fuel that powers your car goes through a refinement process, it will still contain impurities, including dirt and other debris. This is normal, so don't worry too much about. In fact, this is so normal that your car has a fuel filter specifically designed to filter these imperfections out of the petroleum going into your car. Gasoline powered engines will have a fuel filter that remove these impurities while diesel fueled engines will have a filter that works to remove water that can lead to corrosion. Either way, it's important that you keep track of your filter and change it at least once a year. Like all other filters, this type of filter can also fill up or get clogged,, causing your car to work less efficiently.

Cabin Air Filter

If you've ever wondered how the air in your car's cabin stays so clean when driving through a very dusty area, the simple answer is you cabin air filter. This filter works to trap particles, dust, and even allergens so that they don't contaminate the air you and your passengers are breathing. Of course, for it to work you will have to replace it at least once a year. If you have allergies or asthma, you may benefit from changing it more often.
