Replacing Your Engine Air Filter for Spring in San Bernardino, CA


Do you know how to tell when it’s time to replace your vehicle’s engine oil filter? Get your vehicle ready for spring by keeping your vehicle operating at its best. Come by your local Volkswagen dealership and let our service team help you keep your engine air filter in great shape as the weather changes. Engine air filters are easily overlooked, but a dirty engine air filter can negatively affect your car’s performance.


The engine air filter’s purpose is preventing dirt, dust, and other environmental contaminants from infiltrating your engine. Over time, however, this filter becomes dirty and clogged, leading to its need to be replaced. The replacement schedule for your engine air filter varies between vehicles. You may be able to use visually when it is time to replace your filter. If you see black areas on the section of the filter through which outside air enters, it may be time for a swap. If you cannot tell by looking, a 30,000-mile/3-year standard is a good idea. Keep in mind that “severe” driving conditions can lead to the need for more frequent filter changes. Conditions that can necessitate changing your engine oil filter more frequently include:


  • Traveling in heavy traffic during hot weather

  • Frequent driving on unpaved roads

  • Navigating dusty conditions
