Air filters are designed to trap dust, pollen and other particles that enter your vehicle's engine or cabin area. When they are working properly, air filters ensure that you have clean air to breathe while going to work or school. They also ensure that debris doesn't clog vital engine parts or cause damage to exterior surfaces.

Generally speaking, a clean air filter will be white or beige while a dirty air filter will be a dark black or brown. In most cases, you can expect an air filter to last for about a year depending on the conditions that you drive in.

Air filters are relatively inexpensive, and it may be possible to change them on your own if you feel comfortable doing so. However, you can also choose to bring your vehicle to Perkins Motor Plex to have them changed in a timely and professional manner.
