Is it Time to Switch Out Your Car's Filters?

Believe it or not, your vehicle needs to breathe. The combustion process in your engine involves drawing in fresh air and expelling it via your exhaust system. But in order to protect your engine from dirt and debris, the fresh air is pulled through your engine filter. Like any other filter, it will get clogged and needs to be regularly changed.

The same is true for your cabin filter if you have one. This is similar to the filter that you might have in your home for your heating and air system. It filters the air that is being circulated in your car, truck, or SUV so that when you run the heater or air conditioner while you are driving, you are not breathing such dirty air. Like any filtered system, if the filter gets too plugged up then the other components involved like the motor will begin to work too hard and struggle, which could lead to failure.

So if you haven't changed your air filters in a while, bring your vehicle into the service center here at Billion FIAT of Des Moines and let us get it breathing freely for you. We stock cabin and engine air filters and our service team can switch it out for you.
