H2:So…What Exactly Are Your Cabin and Engine Filters?

Sometimes, you’ll hear the term “air filter,” which is a shorter way of referring to your cabin air filter, a component that protects your interior from contaminants and strange odors from entering your vehicle, helping keep your air fresh and clean. You’ll find your cabin filter behind your glovebox, working through your HVAC system to help you literally gain a breath of fresh air.

Similarly, your engine air filter blocks contaminants from entering your engine. However, instead of helping the quality of the air you breathe, this fine part helps your engine run smoothly since you won’t need to worry often about larger particles damaging your smaller components like belts or fans.

Is There a Way to Know It’s Time for a Filter Replacement?

For your air filter, the biggest giveaway it’s time for a replacement is a foul or musky odor entering your cabin, and can commonly imply a buildup of molds you’ll want to remove as quickly as possible. However, if an excessive backup of contaminants is the issue, you’ll notice less air when you crank your fan to maximum settings (especially noticeable in the summer months when your AC won’t cool you off). Also, if you hear a whistling sound from your vents, you’ll have an even larger sign it’s time to change out your cabin filter.

Your engine filter is trickier to find issues with since your performance won’t suffer until your engine has been critically damaged. So, every few months, physically pull out your filter and take a look at it for black spots where air enters—our team can also help with this step by looking at your filter after your next maintenance to let you know if we suggest a replacement.

For both filters, a physical inspection every 15,000 miles and replacement every 30,000-45,000 miles is usually a safe rule of thumb—even if everything drives and works optimally since these mile marks are usually when excess particle build-ups begin. Even better, filter replacements are one of your most affordable maintenances, so you won’t need to worry about thinning out your wallet/bank account.

Do I Truly NEED a Filter Replacement?

For your cabin filter, keeping up with your replacements helps you avoid air conditioning backups, which are far from comfortable when you need to drive through Tampa or Clearwater on ultra-humid summer afternoons and want extra assistance in keeping sweat stains away for critical meetings or important meetups. Also, skipping your cabin filter replacements lets pollutants enter your car, which can lead to a stuffy nose and sinus headache during the spring when pollen slips in your cabin or can make your air less pleasant to breathe. During cool rainy days, you’ll notice your windows won’t clear up as quickly when you turn on your heat, which can make for more dangerous drives with your vision blocked.

Skipping your engine filter replacements can up the cost of your drives since the pollutants cause your powertrain to work harder to propel you forward, which leads to worse fuel economy (meaning more gas station fill-ups). Also, you’ll notice lower performance, which can hurt the 0-60 mph in a vehicle like your AMG GLC 43 SUV or any other cruiser that’s built for power and fun.
