An air filter is designed to keep your cabin and engine free from dust, pollen or dirt. Instead of floating around in the air, these particles are trapped and held on a surface comprised of paper, foam or fiberglass. Air filters are generally white or beige when first purchased and will turn black or brown as they absorb particles.

Generally speaking, an air filter should be changed every 12 to 18 months. The exact timing will depend on weather and road conditions in Chambersburg as well as the design of the filter itself.

You may notice that your car gets reduced gas mileage or doesn't run as well when an air filter is clogged. You may also notice that the air quality in the vehicle isn't as good as a filter ages. Come to Kyners Auto Sales today to have an air filter changed or for other routine service.
