Know When You Should Change Your Cabin and Engine Air Filters

Breathing clean air is something required for your health, but did you also know that your car needs clean air to operate at its optimal level, too? Your Nissan car or SUV features cabin and engine air filters that help to remove impurities from the air, including mold spores, pollen, and other debris, before you circulate that air in the passenger cabin or engine. From time to time, you will need to remove and replace your air filters so that you and your car can breathe easy.

How often should you swap out air filters, and how can you tell if it's time to replace them? That depends. The make and model of your vehicle, area that you reside, and driving frequency all play a role. You can check with a trusted auto service professional or look through your manual that came with your vehicle to see if there's a manufacturer-recommended service schedule available. Additional indicators that it's time to replace your filters include a noisy fan, visibly dirty filters, a stuffy breathing experience, and reduced acceleration. In the event you need a change, come by Nissan of Chattanooga East and we'll get you set up!
