Help Your Engine Perform at Its Peak with Regular Engine Air Filter Changes

Replacing your engine air filter is often one of those routine maintenance items that are easy to forget about or overlook until something starts to go wrong. Fortunately, our team is here to help you stay on top of your Volvo model's engine filter needs so that you can get the most out of your car and avoid trouble further down the road.

So, what is your engine air filter? What does it do? Your car's engine air filter's job is to capture dust and dirt particles so that only clean air can get to your engine. As such, your engine air filter gets dirty and clogged over time, which is why you need to change it regularly to help your engine perform at its best as you travel around Wyoming, MI and Kentwood.

How often should I replace my engine air filter?

If you don't tend to drive much, we recommend replacing your engine air filter at least once every three years. Otherwise, we suggest replacing your engine air filter every 15,000 to 30,000 miles. Staying on top of this routine maintenance item will help your engine stay at the top of its game. Your owner's manual can give you more information on your specific vehicle's needs.
