The Importance of Air Filters in Inverness, FL

When you take your Ford for vehicle service in Inverness at Nick Nicholas Ford, we check everything to ensure that you ride with confidence. That includes your Ford vehicle's filters, which keep your car, truck, or SUV running smoothly and efficiently for longer.

What types of filters does your vehicle need?

Apart from oil filters, most vehicles have three major types of filters: engine air, cabin air, and fuel filters. The former two specifically filter the air, while the fuel filter catches contaminants from the gasoline you pump. All serve the same essential function of removing harmful particles and substances, and that means that they will get dirty after extended periods of use. As such, regular replacements are necessary, much in the same way that you change the filter in your home HVAC system or the oil filter during an oil change at Nick Nicholas Ford.

How often should you change your filters?

As with many other maintenance tasks and vehicle components, the regularity with which these filters need to be replaced varies depending multiple factors. As a general rule, air filters should all be replaced at around the same time at least once a year or every 12,000 miles. If you notice performance issues, dirty engine air and fuel filters may be the culprit. When the heating or air conditioning isn't blowing air as it should, that's a sure sign that a cabin filter needs replaced.

Fortunately, you don't have to keep track of these needs yourself. When you bring your vehicle to Nick Nicholas Ford for a checkup, we'll inspect the filters and let you know when the time comes for a replacement.

Why are filters important?

All filters in your Ford play a vital role in keeping your car, truck, or SUV running. Engine air filters and fuel filters are particularly important because they keep harmful debris out of the engine, allowing it to run as efficiently as possible.

Dirty cabin filters can create unpleasant smells and make it easier for pollen, dust, and mold to seep into the vehicle. That can create big breathing problems if you have allergies, asthma, or other respiratory conditions.
