Your cabin air filter is a vital component of your vehicle, and changing it at the right time will make a big difference. Since this is an oft-neglected aspect of vehicle maintenance, the parts center at Ryan Honda of Minot answers common questions like “How often do I change my cabin air filter,” “what does a cabin air filter do?”, and “how much does a cabin air filter cost?” below for Minot drivers.

What Does a Cabin Air Filter Do?

Wherever you may be driving in Bismarck, there’s inevitably going to be dust, dirt, and other types of debris in the atmosphere. The cabin air filter keeps all this from getting into the engine so that your car’s performance is stable.

How Often Do I Change My Cabin Air Filter?

Changing a cabin air filter is part of regular maintenance you can schedule at a Devils Lake service center. The two guidelines to use to figure out when your cabin air filter needs changing are:

  • Owner’s Manual: Your owner’s manual is always useful and should come with a maintenance schedule for your air filter.
  • Climate Conditions: If you’ve been driving around a lot of dirt and debris, your air filter will wear out more quickly.

Once you’ve decided to change your air filter, it’s easy to find one in Dickinson or with the help of a parts center. And the cabin air filter cost is cheap; it shouldn’t exceed $30. Changing your air filter is a simple replacement you can perform with your own two hands! Locate it with the help of an owner’s manual then plop the new one in.

What Does a Cabin Air Filter Do? Symptoms of a Dirty Cabin Air Filter

Because everyone drives a little differently, it’s good to be alert for certain signs of a dirty cabin air filter. Symptoms include:

  • The Service Engine Light turns on to indicate that you need a change.
  • There’s black smoke emanating from the exhaust.
  • Gas mileage and acceleration can also be negatively affected by a filter that needs changing.
  • Your spark plugs are misfiring!

All these problems more than justify the reasonable cabin air filter cost!
