What Are Cabin and Engine Air Filters Used For?

Our team here at DCH Tustin Acura want to be sure that you and your family have the cleanest environment and the smoothest ride possible every time you get into your car. That is exactly why we thought that it would be helpful to share a few of the basics related to engine and cabin air filters.

First, both filters do essentially the same thing. They both remove particulate matter, dirt, grime, and other things from the air. The cabin filter ensures that you have clean air circulating into the vehicle while the engine air filter makes sure that clean air is coming through the intake.

Without this filter, dirt and other materials could jeopardize the integrity of the car's engine. On average, a filter will last roughly three years before it needs to be replaced but some drivers may need to do so more frequently if they drive off road.
