Fullerton Engine Air Filter and Cabin Air Filter Replacement
Many drivers in Fullerton know their vehicle has an air filter but not many drivers know it has two. And even less people know how important those filters are in keeping you and your vehicle healthy. The first air filter and more commonly know is the engine’s air filter, the second, less known but just as important is the cabin air filter. They both do as they are self described, as in “filter air” but work in different areas of your vehicle. Additionally, your air filters should be replaced at the intervals recommended by your vehicles manufacturer, but even that might not be frequent enough. If you drive in dusty areas like the freeways in and around Fullerton, and particularly if you go off-road, filters can get dirty more quickly, and they will need to be replaced more often than what’s recommended.
Here’s some more helpful information about your air filters.
