Spring is in the air, literally.
You can see it on your car and on your patio, especially if you live under oak trees. Allergy season in Florida is one of the worst in the country and this picture sums it up pretty well:
So what does this mean for your vehicle?
Every vehicle has an engine air filter that helps keep out dirt and debris. Engines are like lungs, both need clean air to work correctly. A dirty engine air filter will hinder fuel economy and engine performance.
For modern day vehicles, the majority of cars and SUVs have cabin air filters which filter the outside air before it enters the cabin of the vehicle. A dirty cabin air filter can cause unpleasant smells inside the vehicle and make your allergies even worse. ACHOO! A severely clogged cabin air filter can even cause damage to HVAC parts such as the AC blower motor and resistor. It could also cause low air volume from the AC vents.
If you can’t remember the last time you checked or replaced your engine or cabin air filter then now is the time. And if you don’t know how or don’t have time to, we can do it for you! Our Full Service Oil Change include inspection of the engine air filter and cabin air filter (if equipped and accessible).
