Automotive Air Filter Replacement Allen, TX
The engine air filtration system may consist of the following components:
- Engine air filter
- Breather element (if equipped)
- PCV valve (if equipped)
The engine air filter traps harmful dirt particles from entering the engine’s air intake system. These dirt particles can cause engine damage. The breather element helps filter the air pulled into the engine crankcase by the positive crankcase ventilation (PCV) system (if equipped). The PCV valve helps regulate the flow of crankcase fumes into the intake manifold so they can be burned.
If an engine filtration system becomes restricted, airflow is reduced which can lead to reduced fuel economy, reduced engine performance and poor acceleration.
