August 11, 2019

Every Columbus car owner who has taken their car in for an oil change has been told that their engine air filter's dirty.

Here's what goes into the determination of when to change the filter: First, your vehicle owner's manual will have a recommendation of when the filter should be replaced.

So between your owner's manual and your Columbus technician's inspection there's really no guesswork involved for Columbus drivers.

Now, most air filters purchased in Columbus don't cost a lot to replace. It's just that Ohio people hate getting caught with an unexpected expense. On the plus side, though, changing a dirty air filter at Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Grandview can often save enough on gas to pay for itself before your next oil change in Columbus.

Think about a dirty furnace filter in your Columbus home. When it's all clogged up, enough clean air can't get through. In your vehicle, that means that your engine can't get as much air as it needs to burn the fuel efficiently. So it makes do with less air and has to use more gas to move your vehicle around Columbus roads.

When it's time to change yours, just get it done. You'll get better fuel economy, have better performance and protect your vehicle engine.
