HI, I’M JAMES WITH S AND S TIRE, CROSSING, AND TODAY, I WANNA TALK TO YOU ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF CHECKING OR REPLACING THE AIR FILTERS IN YOUR CAR. EVERY ENGINE HAS AN AIR FILTER. AND IT CAN GET REALLY DIRTY UNDER THE HOOD. YOUR AIR FILTER IS WHAT PROTECTS YOUR ENGINE FROM INGESTING ALL THE DUST AND DIRT IN THE AIR. IF IT’S DOING ITS JOB WELL, IT CAN CLOG UP MUCH LIKE A VACUUM CLEANER. A DIRTY AIR FILTER WILL LIMIT AIR FLOW, MAKING YOUR ENGINE WORK HARDER, AND POTENTIALLY DECREASING YOUR FUEL ECONOMY. WHAT YOU MAY NOT KNOW IS THAT YOUR CAR ACTUALLY HAS A SECOND AIR FILTER, CALLED A CABIN AIR FILTER. THIS FILTER IS LOCATED DIRECTLY IN THE HVAC SYSTEM, AND ACTUALLY WORKS VERY SIMILAR TO THE FURNACE FILTER IN YOUR HOUSE. IT BLOCKS ALL THE AIR COMING INTO THE CABIN OF THE VEHICLE, WHICH WOULD BE THE AIR THAT YOU’RE BREATHING. WHEN THESE FILTERS BECOME CLOGGED, THEY ACTUALLY PUT MORE STRESS ON THE AIR CONDITIONING AND THE HEATING SYSTEM BLOWING THROUGH THE VENTS. WE HAVE SEEN CABIN AIR FILTERS IN CARS THAT ARE ACTUALLY THIS DIRTY. SO YOUR QUESTION IS, HOW OFTEN DO YOU CHECK THEM OR REPLACE THEM? YOU SHOULD ALWAYS CHECK YOUR OWNER’S MANUAL FOR MILEAGE RECOMMENDATIONS, BUT MOST MANUFACTURES RECOMMEND AT LEAST ONCE EVERY 12 MONTHS OR 12 THOUSAND MILES, WHICHEVER COMES FIRST. A TIP TO HELP YOU REMEMBER WHEN TO CHANGE THOSE FILTERS IS WRITE IT DOWN ON A PIECE OF TAP AND STICK IT TO THE AIR BOX. THIS WAY YOU’LL KNOW WHEN THE LAST TIME IT WAS CHANGED. FROM S AND S TIRE, THAT’S YOUR TIP OF THE DAY FROM UNDER THE HOOD. SPEAKER 2: NOW AT S AND S TIRE, BUY FOUR CONTINENTAL OR GENERAL TIRES AND GET FOUR FREE OIL CHANGES.
