Nobody - I mean nobody wants a high repair bill. Ever! So why ignore the easy things like filters and fluids? Here at Melvin's Auto & Truck Repair our St Augustine drivers know that their car and truck’s filters are important to the longevity of that vehicle as well as the interior comfort. Maximize your car investment by replacing filters regularly. The oil filter traps contaminants, allowing the oil to flow through the engine unrestricted. The fuel filter separates harmful contaminants that may cause problems with carburetors or intricate fuel injectors. The air filter traps dirt particles, which can cause damage to engine cylinders, walls, pistons and piston rings. The air filter also plays a role in keeping contaminants off the airflow sensor (in fuel-injected cars). The cabin filter helps trap pollen, bacteria and dust that may find their way into a car’s ventilation system. Keeping the filters and fluids changed regularly is simply a win-win solution!
Filters are normal wear items that require regular checks and replacement. Factors that affect replacement intervals include:
- Driving habits
- Driving and road conditions
- Type of filter
- Vehicle type
Symptoms that you really need to get those filters and fluids changed include,
- Poor gas mileage
- Hesitation while accelerating
- That pesky light is on in your dash every time you turn the ignition on!
- Musty odor in the cabin
