Just like you, your car needs fresh air to thrive. Ensure your engine is getting all the fresh air it needs by replacing your air filter every 15,000 to 30,000 miles. Our expert team at Mike Johnson’s Hickory Toyota has the parts to get your car breathing right and back out on the road in no time.
Why Change Your Engines Air Filter
Our air is full of debris and dust that is harmful to your car. The engine’s air filter is designed to filter out all the dangerous parts that could harm your vehicle, but your air filter can’t last forever. Your air filter has a life span, just like the other parts of your car, such as your oil and windshield wipers. When you don’t replace your air filter, your engine won’t get the clean air it needs to run correctly, or worse, the harmful debris can get into your engine and ruin your vehicles performance and fuel economy.
How Often Should I Change My Engine’s Air Filter?
We recommend replacing your air filter at most every 30,000 miles or 36 months - whichever comes first. However, if you are known to drive around the Statesville and Hickory, North Carolina more than average, it might be wise to inspect your filter every 15,000 miles or 18 months. And whenever you bring your vehicle into our service department, we will happily check your air filter, at no cost to you!
