Auto systems require regular maintenance. After all, most owners are aware of the need to change their vehicles' oil every 5,000 - 10,000 km. They also know to check different fluids, measure tire pressure, and replace other simple components, such as windshield wipers.
Fewer people, however, are aware of the need to change filters. There are three such items on every vehicle that should be replaced regularly. Owners can do so themselves or head to our service centre to get the job done.
The engine filter keeps road debris and dust from entering the motor. Replacement times can vary by vehicle. On average, you need a new one every 50,000 km or so. If the powertrain components get dirty, it can reduce efficiency and hurt performance.
All vehicles also require an oil filter. It keeps impurities from getting into the engine, where they can cause damage, reduce efficiency, and shorter the life of the motor. You need to replace this item every time you change the lubricant.
Finally, the cabin air filter keeps impurities from getting inside the vehicle. Replacement times can vary depending on where you drive. You typically need to change it once per year or every 25,000 km.
