Filters are your vehicle's first line of defense to ensure performance, longevity and interior comfort, according to the Car Care Council, an automotive consumer education group.
The filtration system which includes the oil, fuel, and air filter, traps dirt and particles that allow the engine and the ventilation system to function properly.
'Your air filter has a big job since your car's engine can use more than 10,000 gallons of air for every gallon or fuel burned,' said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. 'Regularly checking all of your vehicle's filters and replacing them as needed is a simple and inexpensive way to care for your car.'
Filters are normal wear items that require regular checks and replacements, so make sure your filters are changed regularly.
