Automotive Air and Fuel Filters

The automotive air and fuel filters are a important part of a car’s intake system, because it is through the auto air filter that the engine breathes. All air enters the engine through the air filter first. The purpose of the auto air filter is to filter out dirt and other foreign particles in the air, preventing them form entering the system and possibly damaging the engine.  Clogged or dirty cabin air filters can significantly reduce airflow from the cabin vents, as well as introduce allergens into the cabin air stream.  A clean air filter is essential for your car’s ultimate performance.

Recommended change intervals: One year or every 15,000 miles


Your vehicle uses about 12,000 gallons of air for every gallon of fuel you burn. That’s about 100 gallons of air every block. All that air needs to be filtered to keep your engine clean and your fuel economy good. If you replace your dirty engine air filter it might just pay for itself with fuel savings before your next oil change. At Dick Adams Automotive in Salinas we install quality NAPA replacement parts.
