You probably know to get your oil, wiper blades, and even transmission fluid checked (and changed) when necessary. But have you been remembering to get regular air filter car service?
If you haven’t, don’t worry — but don’t wait any longer! Kernersville Auto Center can give you the fastest and most professional air filter service in the Piedmont Triad.
What Does an Air Filter Do?
Well, when your car is out on the road, there’s all kinds of debris floating free in the air. Leaves, dirt, dust, small objects, and who knows what else are all out there. And, since your car requires air intake to help the fuel combust, it’s important to filter that air.

Dangers of a Clogged Air Filter
Unfortunately, many people don’t think about changing their car’s air filter until it’s too late! Moreover, a clogged air filter can cause real performance problems.
One especially serious problem happens when your car can’t take in an optimal amount of air for the combustion process. When this happens, a mechanic would say that the car is “running rich,” or has excessive fuel in the mixture. If you’re experiencing strange-smelling exhaust that has black smoke or smells like rotten eggs, this could be the culprit!
To prevent running rich, a functional air filter cleans and purifies the air. A clean vehicle air filter means your car’s happy — you’re happy — it’s all good!
