September is almost over, and the worst fires of the season are behind us. Unfortunately, during the past weeks, your vehicle’s air filters bore the brunt of the smoke and ash that floated through the air. Normally we recommend air filter replacement every 12 months or so, but this year, the time to replace air filters is now.
Your vehicle likely has two air filters – cabin air filter that cleans the air you and your passengers breathe, and engine air filter which cleans the air used by the engine. Both need to be replaced. Fortunately this can be accomplished during an oil service, so if your vehicle is due for one, you can get it all done at the same time. If your vehicle does not need oil service in the near future, we recommend making an appointment to change the air filters anyway – vehicle’s engine, and your lungs will benefit.
