At Muller Honda of Gurnee, the seasonal change happening now reminds us about the nature of the engine air filter. Every Honda model with an internal combustion engine also has an Engine Air Filter that removes airborne debris from the ambient air before entering the fuel injection system. A new Honda Engine Air Filter removes nearly 100% of the incoming airborne filth, including engine-threatening dust particles, pollen, insects, and whatever else might be carried in the air.
The engine air filter has a significant performance limitation built into its design; as a filter, it needs to have a paper composite design that allows air to pass through but not airborne particulates. The paper composite design of the filter that promotes maximum air filtering is also what limits its useful life. When you need a new Honda engine air filter, we invite you to the Muller Honda of Gurnee for unprecedented service quality at our Service Department near Waukegan, Grayslake, North Chicago, and Antioch, IL.
At Muller Honda of Gurnee, we advise our customers to follow the recommended engine air filter replacement interval found in the owner’s manual. However, we also know that the Waukegan region can get dusty in the summer and that some of our customers drive on unpaved roads.
Since driving in dirty environments can cause the engine air filter to fail rapidly, it is also smart to replace the engine air filter if it starts to experience warning signs of getting clogged or torn. If you are experiencing any of the warning signs, we recommend scheduling service no matter the mileage.
Engine Air Filter Replacement begins with a Certified Technician and a genuine Honda OEM Engine Air Filter from our Parts Department. The certified technician will remove the old engine air filter and install a new Honda OEM Engine Air Filter to restore peak air filtration.
