A lot can go wrong if your air filter stops doing its job, so we carry the full stock of filters for Honda vehicles, no matter the model or the year. Many drivers aren’t quite sure what their air filter does and don’t make it a maintenance priority, but it’s an essential part of your car.
How Car Air Filters Work With Your Engine
There are two things you need for a proper combustion reaction like the one that occurs in your engine: fuel and oxygen. It sounds simple, and it is, but the more impurities there are in the oxygen, the less effective it is, and that's where your air filter comes in. A fresh air filter makes sure that the oxygen getting into your engine is free of dust and debris.
And while you may think that your grille could do a good job of that without the filter, we encourage you to take a look at your grille again sometime. It's likely covered in dirt and the remains of bugs. Without your air filter, that is the kind of stuff that would make it into your engine.
What Can Go Wrong When You Have a Dirty Air Filter
If the filter doesn't let enough oxygen in, your engine could be “running rich”, burning too much fuel for too little power and damaging elements of your engine. Car air filters are generally pretty inexpensive, but if you don't replace them regularly you could be out some expensive repair costs.
Take a look at some common problems caused by dirty air filters:
- Dirt and grime enters your engine, leading to abrasion or even corrosion
- Fuel burns less efficiently, causing your car to guzzle gas
- Rich fuel leads to a smell of gasoline in your exhaust
Because of these side effects, it’s important to know when to replace your air filter. If you glance at it and it looks dirty, it should probably be replaced, but otherwise, there are a few tips we can give you.
How to Know When Your Air Filter Needs to Be Replaced
Two of those dirty air filter problems are just as likely to be telltale signs that your Honda air filter needs replacing. If you notice that your car is running less efficiently or that you've got a gasoline smell coming out of your exhaust, there's a good chance you need a new air filter.
Here are a few suggestions for how you can know when your air filter needs changing:
- If your air filter looks dirty upon inspection (remember, some air filters look off-white when they are brand new).
- If you live in a dry or dusty climate and have noticed your car behaving a bit sluggishly or it has been as much as 10,000 miles.
- Some experts suggest that you can go as long as 15,000 miles on an air filter in climates with cleaner air.
- You can always just change your air filter with your oil—it may be a bit early for a change, but that way it will always be fresh.
OEM Honda Air Filters vs. Aftermarket Air Filters
No matter the model or year of your Honda, we carry an air filter for it here at All Discount Parts. We know that you may be tempted by a cheaper aftermarket air filter for your Honda, but we recommend you only use OEM products, especially when it comes to your air filter.
Aftermarket air filters are made to fit as many models as possible and are not made to last. OEM Honda air filters, on the other hand, are designed specifically for your car, are made of much higher quality, and are backed by Honda's 12-month/12,000-mile warranty, redeemable at any Honda dealer.
