Replace or upgrade your Car air filter
Replacing your engine's air filter is a relatively simple repair that can be done in a few minutes with everyday tools in most cases. The air filter for your engine is one of the most important filters used in the automobile today.
This filter cleans and removes the air the engine uses for combustion.
After the old air filter has been removed use a clean, damp towel to wipe out any excess dirt that remains in the air filter housing.
Never run an engine without an air filter because not only does an air filter clean the air it acts as a water break in heavy ran and will keep out larger items such as leaves and twigs.
When an engine is operating it takes in a massive amount of air, if this air intake is impaired it can cause the engine to have low power and in some cases misfire and stall.
