Engine air filters prevent airborne debris from entering the engine vital air and fluids flow. Engine air filters have an important job to do and will eventually wear out. All engine air filters will wear out and become contaminated with pollutants and debris over time. Once the filter is dirty and clogged, it is no longer able to perform its job properly. When that happens, the engine air filter is ineffective and engine parts become unprotected. A dirty engine air filter will cause your engine to work harder than necessary. The consequence is poor fuel economy, higher emissions, and loss of power. We recommend replacing old filters to avoid placing stress on the engine and other critical vehicle parts.
As the engine air filter wears out, your Toyota vehicle will start to experience reduced performance and might even have damage to vital engine parts. The benefits of a new engine air filter are both performance-enhancing and engine-saving. The engine air filter protects critical engine parts by removing harmful debris so that your vehicle runs properly. The cleaner the engine air filter, the more it promotes maximum air flow through the engine. A dirty filter will starve the engine of clean air that reduces efficiency and can even cause damage. When an engine air filter becomes dirty, it should be replaced immediately. A new engine air filter will help ensure that your vehicle runs efficiently.
