Cabin Air Filter
The cabin air filter cleans the air in the passenger compartment and filters both pollen and debris from the air you breathe. The Pro Oil Change in Coquitlam can help replace your cabin air filter during your next visit. Replacing the cabin air filter provides cleaner air in the passenger cabin, better running heating and air conditioning systems and prevents the possible blower fan failure.
Cabin filters are used in most newer vehicles to help clean the air in the passenger compartment of the vehicle.
When your air filter is dirty, your engine is forced to work harder, resulting in poor fuel economy, higher emissions and, possibly, a loss of engine power. In turn, as a worst-case scenario, a clogged cabin air filter can lead to under-performance of the A/C system, causing weak air flow from the cabin vents.
A dirty or plugged cabin filter can cause reduced air flow inside the passenger cabin and poor performance of the air conditioning and heater units.
If your air filter gets too dirty or clogged, your engine won't be able to suck enough air into the combustion chambers. The engine will then run rich (too much gas and not enough air). When this happens, your vehicle may lose power and the engine may run roughly. Additionally, your "Check Engine" warning light may come on.
