Jonathan Susser, Parts and Service Director at Mike Shaw Subaru taking a minute to talk about engine air filter maintenance.

A dirty or clogged air filter can affect the fuel economy and overall vehicle performance. Both diesel and gasoline powered engines are designed to maintain a specific air-fuel ratio. A restricted air filter can affect the way the engine maintains the correct air-fuel mixture. If the air filter is restricted, the fuel mileage and overall vehicle drivability can deteriorate rapidly.

Replacing your air filter element is a quick and effective way to keep your engine running at its peak performance. A clean air filter helps your engine work more efficiently by letting the airflow get to the engine with no restrictions. A clean air filter can also prolong the life of your engine.

An air filter should be replaced after approximately 15,000 miles depending on driving conditions.  As always if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me at your next service visit to . Serving Denver, Thornton, Arvada, Westminster and Broomfield, CO.
