Automobile engines are very delicate components, and they will receive special attention during use. The air filter is known as the patron saint of the engine. In daily use, in order to better protect the engine, the air filter must be regularly inspected and maintained.
Air filter inspection and maintenance precautions:
1) Remove the cover of the air filter box. There are various types such as removing the screws in the box and removing the surrounding clips.
2) The cleaning block is placed in the box, which can be roughly classified into two types: bento box shape and round shape.
3) Check the dirt of the cleaning block. Parts that come into direct contact with outside air are easily dirty. Dry filter plates can be reused after cleaning.
4) Don't forget the car type when buying a new filter. Before replacement, the dirt in the box should also be wiped clean.
5) Air filtration and air tightness of engine air circulation are very important. The tightening of the belt at the contact point and the aging of the hose should also be checked.
6) A sports air cleaner that performs better than an air filter, slightly more expensive, but works well.
Tips: The replacement time of the air cleaning block is about 40,000km. In order to maintain good engine performance, do not forget to replace it. Dry filters remove contamination and can be reused, while oily wet filters must be replaced. Cars driving in dusty places need to be carefully inspected.
The inspection and replacement of the air filter is a simple maintenance item that can be completed in 30 minutes, and it is not easy to get your hands dirty. Take a little time to try it during the holidays. It is only necessary to perform simple operations such as checking and replacing the contamination level of the filter cleaning block. The dry cleaning block wipes off the dirt and dust and can be reused. The oily wet cleaning block can only be replaced, so the degree of dirt must be checked. The manufacturer stipulates that it should be replaced at about 40,000km, but because it is not too expensive, it is best to replace it after the gap of the cleaning block is blocked, which is more reassuring.
