Is your vehicle experiencing poor performance issues? Have you noticed a decrease in gas mileage? Perhaps your check engine light turned on? While there are many reasons for these types of vehicle problems, you may want to start by checking your vehicle’s air filter. At AAMCO in Walnut Creek, CA, we recommend regular air filter replacement to improve performance and reduce emissions.
Every time you drive your vehicle, it’s subjected to harsh outside elements. The air filter collects dirt, dust, and other debris like insects, leaves, twigs, etc. As you can imagine, the filter gets dirty rather quickly. When the filter is overly dirty, it can’t circulate the air as well. What happens is vehicles don’t accelerate as well and may experience idling issues. Sensors may also be affected, which is why the check engine light turns on.
If it’s been a while since you’ve replaced your vehicle’s air filter, stop in to your neighborhood AAMCO Total Car Care Center. Our trusted technicians will replace the filter and also check the breather element and Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) Valve. These are components that need replacement from time to time to reduce the wear on engine parts.
At AAMCO in Walnut Creek, our air filter replacement services are just one component of our total care package. To learn more about the many ways you can keep your car running better for longer, consult with a qualified technician. Keeping your vehicle in optimal condition is our main priority.
