Genuine Peugeot Air Filters
When you choose to own a Peugeot Vehicle, it is important that you use Genuine Peugeot Air Filters and other Genuine Peugeot parts for repairs or other maintenance needs. When it comes to Genuine Peugeot Air Filters there are a number of benefits you will not get by choosing aftermarket products.
Benefits Of Using Genuine Air Filters
Genuine Peugeot Air Filters have more pleats, helping to trap more particles. Despite this, the Genuine Peugeot Air Filter can actually provide up to 60 per cent more airflow. It’s a terrific blend between breathability and impenetrability. Best of all, the high-quality fibre material is extremely durable, capable of withstanding extreme weather conditions and temperatures.
Knowing When To Change Your Air Filter
A brand new air filter is typically white or off-white. If you notice any of the following problems, you may need to replace the air filter:
- Decreases in your car’s MPG.
- Spark plug problems, such as rough idling or difficulties starting the car, caused by an overly rich air-fuel blend.
- “Service Engine” light coming on, which can be the result of deposits in the engine.
- Problems with acceleration.
- Visible soot, dirt or debris on the air filter.
Even if you don’t notice any problems, you should always replace the air filter according to the owner’s manual, or sooner if you often drive in dusty conditions such as rural roads. Pollen and dust are not always visible, even in direct sunlight. Therefore, changing it on time, even if it doesn’t look dirty, is the best way to ensure that the air filter is always clean enough to do its job.
What Does The Air Filter Do?
The air filter’s job is to deliver 10,000 gallons of clean air to the engine for every gallon of petrol burned to enter the engine. As outside air flows through it, it becomes filled with pollen, dust, and debris. A clogged air filter won’t allow enough air to enter the engine, and this can affect the performance of your vehicle over time.
Because the air filter sits inside a black box or a metal housing on older vehicles, it is easy to ignore. Even if your car’s fuel efficiency starts to decrease, or the “Service Engine” light comes on, the air filter may not be the first thing that comes to mind. Here at Peugeot Parts Direct, we know that keeping the air filter clean is one of the cheapest and quickest ways to keep your car running smoothly.
