How often should you change your Air Filter?

 

 

Other than electric cars, most modern automobile engines run by internal combustion and requires air to operate. That’s because without air, specifically, oxygen, fuels cannot burn to provide the explosive force that power the engine properly.

Have you ever found yourself in a situation where it was hard to breathe? It could because of a cold, allergies, smog or excess smoke in the air. How did it affect you? It probably slowed you down and took more effort to perform basic activities. A dirty air filter creates the same situation for your engine.

If the air going into the engine is not clean it runs the risk of dust, dirt and debris quickly fouling up the engine, causing poor performance and potentially shortening the life of the car.

Foreign particles in the air going into the engine act as abrasives, wearing away at engine bearings, piston rings and cylinders. In addition, modern engines rely on a precise ratio of air to fuel. When the engine is starved of air, the fuel mix is said to run too “rich,” which in effect puts added strain on the engine.

Testimonials

“I went to Car Craft a few years ago BECAUSE I was looking for a car shop that had integrity and offered only services that were needed as cost has always been a factor since I was female and taken advantage of previously by unscrupulous service shops.” Lavana
I own a Ford 2004 F350 Diesel and have had terrible experiences with other shops.  After my first experience with Tony and Car Craft, I know I’ve found the right shop.  I get better mileage now which relates to less wear on my vehicle thanks to Car Craft. Wayne Donecz
Norm at the front desk provides unreal service each and every time. Owner Tony is very professional and friendly. Car Craft is definitely doing their best to become the neighbourhood garage. Great staff, and great work. Alex Labreque

Professional, courteous, competent and friendly Shirley Gordon
I got a recommendation from the local Napa parts dealer for Car Craft to help me with my check engine light coming on while I was visiting my parents in Kelowna from Puyallup, Washington. I was leaving to go home the next morning over the Coquihalla Pass Highway. It was after 3 pm when I pulled in. They took great care of me and had the problem diagnosed and the light turned off and I was on my way just after 4 pm. Fantastic people with a great attitude to help you.Hats off to these folks it’s not about the money to them it’s all about taking care of you. ANONYMOUS
Norm has been very professional. Bob & Lynn Houle
Fast, friendly service. I did not feel bamboozled by these guys – they explained what I needed to have done and were great about telling me the work that was not necessary. I really appreciated that. I think women can rest assured that they are not getting ripped off when the bring their cars in on their own. That is a real concern for a lot of us. Kate
I found the staff to be friendly, professional and extremely competent. I would have no hesitation to recommend them to others. I will be using their services again in the future. ANONYMOUS
Rob, Norm, Tony and their crew are as professional and trustworthy as I have seen in any profession. I couldn’t ask for a better group of people to look after my vehicles. Both my wife and I take our personal and work vehicles to CarCraft. We are very grateful for their outstanding service. ANONYMOUS
