Replace Your Filters On Time Every Time

Regularly replacing the filters in your car is one of the best ways to ensure it lasts a long time. Each of these is in charge of removing contaminants before they continue on to cause harm. Over time, these particles will build up in filters, and you’ll need to replace them, or they’ll become clogged.

Some of these include the following:

  • Fuel filter (replace every 2-years or 30,000 miles)
  • Engine air filter (replace every 15,000-30,000 miles)
  • Cabin air filter (replace every 15,000-20,000 miles)
  • Engine oil filter (replace every 3-months or 3,000 miles)
  • Emission filter (replace every 100,000 miles)

Ignoring any of these can lead to devastating consequences. Take your oil filter, for instance, which keeps things like dirt, dust, and metallic particles from reaching your engine. These contaminants can build up in your oil and turn it into sludge, which your engine doesn’t cope well with.

When this happens, your engine has to work harder, which can cause it to overheat. When an engine overheats, it is more likely to develop a blown head gasket or a cracked block, which are costly repairs that are best avoided.
