Your vehicle has filters for both fluids and gases, both kinds performing the same job of cleaning whatever substance they were designed to handle. In the case of your engine and cabin air filters, they both accomplish a similar effect for very different reasons.

The engine air filter traps dust and other contaminants in Wilmington, NC that come in with the air funneled into your engine from the openings in your front grille. This air becomes part of the fuel combustion process that causes the pistons to fire and ultimately your car to move. Without the air filter, contaminants would clog these various processes and reduce engine efficiency.

The cabin air filter makes your time in the car healthier and more enjoyable by removing dust, reducing odors, and keeping pollen and other allergens out of the cabin. Both filters should be changed every two years or so.
