Dirt, dust, pollen, water, and other pollutants can affect your car's performance. Your vehicle needs the help of various filters to stay clean. Here's what you should know about them.

Four Filters That Keep Your Car Going

Regular maintenance and proper care can extend your car’s longevity. You know about the importance of changing your synthetic motor oil, refilling your antifreeze, and having the right air pressure on your tires. But do you know about the importance of taking care of your car’s various filters? The filters play an essential part in keeping your vehicle clean and fully functioning. Here are the four main filters you need to know about. Oil filter: Many metal pieces make up your engine. These pieces are continually rubbing and grinding against each other. Often, tiny metal shavings can tear off and contribute the oil pollution. Dirt and debris are already promoting sludge formation in the engine. You don’t want to worry about metal contaminants doing that too. The oil travels all around the engine lubricating, regulating the temperature, reducing friction, and gathering pollutants. If your car is giving you any indications that you need to get new synthetic motor oil, there’s really no point in doing it if you don’t change the oil filter too. Getting new synthetic motor oil while leaving the same old filter might contaminate the clean oil. If you’re due for a synthetic oil change anytime soon, be sure to use AMSOIL Synthetic Oil which you can get at their online store. Conveniently enough, you can also get your oil filter there too. Try their XL 0W-20 Synthetic Motor Oil to get even more extended oil change intervals. If you’re not into online shopping, you can also call Ken Reaser Enterprises at (321) 230-6958 to make your purchase instead. Fuel filter: You’ll find that there are two types of fuel filters, and they both work differently. The filter you need depends on which kind of fuel you use. For engines that use gasoline, the fuel filter will trap the pollutants found in the fuel. Petroleum is organic which means it will have some contaminants. The tanks in which gasoline is stored also have dirt and rust which can also make their way into your gas tank. While these impurities won’t damage your engine, they can make your fuel last less. To get the most out of your fuel, you can use AMSOIL’s  P.i. Performance Improver Gasoline Additive and be smarter when you refuel your gas tank. Diesel engines, on the other hand, have another job. Both filters will improve your engine’s performance and lifespan, but the diesel filter will also prevent corrosion. The filter is a bowl-like contraption that collects water and separates it from diesel. You should later remove the drain plug to get rid of the excess water. If that water finds its way into your engine or fuel system, you’re in for a lot of drama. Air filter: Your engine sucks air from outside to complete the combustion process. That air is filled with dirt, debris, and other impurities which make their way into your engine. The air filter collects all these impurities and allows the combustion process to go by smoothly and your engine to keep up its good performance. Without the air filter, the combustion process wouldn’t happen as it’s supposed to and you’d soon notice the effects on your vehicle’s fuel consumption and power. Once in a while, you can clean your air filter with an air hose to blow out some of the debris. However, you do need to change the filter about once a year, according to your owner’s manual recommendations. Cabin air filter: With spring the air, the air filter is especially important. Spring air carries dust and pollen that might trigger an allergic reaction. While the cabin air filter won’t affect your car’s performance, it’s the air filter’s job to capture those particles and prevent them from entering your car’s cabin and affecting your breathing air. The air filter needs to be changed once a year or more frequently if you live in a particularly dusty area
