Just as you enjoy a breath of fresh air, your vehicle needs fresh air for the engine to work properly. The engine air filter helps ensure optimal fuel combustion and engine performance while the cabin air filter helps improve interior air quality for you and your passengers.
The climate control system in your passenger cabin includes a filter that helps remove dust, pollen, mold spores and other particles from the air and improve the interior air quality that you and your passengers breathe. After a visual inspection, Jiffy Lube® Technicians can install a new cabin air filter replacement, if necessary. Your vehicle manufacturer recommends replacement at normal and severe intervals based on your driving habits. If you routinely drive in particularly challenging environments — on dirt or dusty roads — consider using the severe recommended interval. Even if it’s unclear when the last time your filter was replaced, your technician can tell if it’s clogged with dust and debris.
The engine air filter captures airborne contaminants such as dirt and dust before they can enter the engine. Typically the system includes a pleated paper element and a paper or foam breather element to capture contaminants in the air coming from the PCV (positive crankcase ventilation) valve. A dirty, clogged engine air filter system prevents enough clean air from getting into the engine and can contribute to reduced acceleration. Manufacturers recommend replacement at particular intervals, which may be shorter if your vehicle is subject to severe conditions. After a visual inspection, Jiffy Lube® technicians can install new engine air filter system parts as necessary.
