The Importance of Engine Air Filters

If it seems like you cant talk to your Service Advisor at Volkswagen of Olympia without hearing about another filter, you're not alone! Your Volkswagen is full of filters, each specifically designed to keep harmful particles from entering any major system or disrupting a component that helps keep your VW on the road. While most of them are used to filter through fluids to keep everything lubricated and operating to factory standards, there are filters that stop contaminants found in the air.

Your Volkswagens engine operates at incredibly fast speeds and run under ridiculously high temperatures, which is why a clean air filter can help prevent engine failure caused by dirt and debris. While it may seem dramatic to say that a filter can help stop a catastrophic event like engine failure, its true; even a small about of dirt or dust build up can cause major damage to to the constantly moving components in your engine. In the event that your Engine Air Filter is dirty or clogged, you may experience reduced performance and fuel economy and increased fuel consumption and emissions.
