Difference Between Cabin Air Filters and Engine Air Filters

Difference Between Cabin Air Filters and Engine Air Filters

Even though cabin air filters and engine air filters function similarly by purifying the air, however, their purposes and locations are different. Both of these filters are essential for your vehicle's overall longevity and performance. Even the smallest parts of your car, including your cabin air filter and engine air filter, ensure you reach your destination safely and smoothly.  If you stick to a regular maintenance schedule, our technicians can keep a close eye on your cabin air filters and engine air filters, but how exactly does a cabin air filter and an engine air filter operate? Your engine air filter is responsible for ensuring only clean air reaches your engine's interior. Your vehicle has an intake system that draws air into the engine. This air must be clean and free of contaminants, particles, or debris. Your engine air filter makes sure to filter out all the debris. If your engine air filter is dirty or clogged, it will need to be replaced, or your engine ... read more
