Every Boulder car owner who has taken their car in for an oil change has been told that their engine air filter’s dirty.
Here’s what goes into the determination of when to change the filter: First, your family car owner’s manual will have a recommendation of when to change the filter. Second, a visual inspection by your Eldorado Springs technician may determine that your filter it is visibly dirty and needs to be changed.
So between your owner’s manual and your Eldorado Springs technician’s inspection there’s really no guesswork involved.
Now, most air filters purchased in Lafayette, Louisville, or Boulder don’t cost a lot to replace. It’s just that CO people hate getting caught with an unexpected expense. On the plus side, though, changing a dirty air filter at John’s Auto Care can often save enough on gas to pay for itself before your next oil change in Eldorado Springs.
Think about a dirty furnace filter in your Louisville home. When it’s all clogged up, enough clean air can’t get through. In your family car, that means that your engine can’t get as much air as it needs to burn the fuel efficiently. So it makes do with less air and has to use more expensive CO gas to move your vehicle around Eldorado Springs roads.
Your family car actually needs about 12,000 gallons of air for every gallon of gas it burns. Engine air filters don’t cost much in Boulder at John’s Auto Care. When it’s time to change yours, just get it done. You’ll buy less fuel, have better performance and protect your engine.
