Common questions about replacing the air filter

What are the signs of a clogged air filter?

When the air filter is clogged, the engine power is significantly reduced. Fuel consumption is noticeably increased, sometimes by 2 to 3 litres per 100 km. The engine performance is impaired, and it becomes difficult to start. Increased formation of carbon deposits on the spark plugs leads to misfires, which also adversely affects the engine operation. Sometimes the “check engine” light comes on. Black smoke comes from the exhaust pipe. When starting the engine, you can clearly smell petrol inside the car.

Can I replace the air filter myself?

In most cases, you can easily change the air filter yourself. To do this, you will need a screwdriver of the appropriate size and shape, and an air blow gun to clean the filter housing of dust. You can find detailed steps for replacing the air filter on your exact car model in the video tutorials from AUTODOC CLUB.

What kind of air filter is the best for my car?

The dimensions of the filter must exactly match your vehicle’s technical specifications. Otherwise, the part will either be impossible to mount, or, due to the gaps, some air will enter the engine directly, bypassing the filtering element. Choose products from well-known manufacturers. For cars used in dusty areas, filters with an air precleaning function are recommended. High-flow filters are perfect for powerful sports cars.
