Air filter or car engine air cleaner is a fairly simple mechanism. It consists of a filter case and filter element, which is a nonseparable structure and comes in a complete set with a lid. At the bottom of the air filter housing there is a special pimple, called an oil bath, where the engine oil is filled. Rubber gasket is used both for the filter element housing and filter housing.

When the engine starts, the air enters the annular slot between the filter and filter element housings. Air flow, which passes a vertical annular channel, formed by these housings, over the oil bath turns at 180 degrees. At the same time large dust particles, which continue to run down, get into the oil and accumulate on the bottom of the oil bath. After that air enters the filter element where it is cleaned and sent to the cylinders.

The size of the filter mostly depends on the characteristics of the car engine. The more engine power is, the bigger is the air filter. Evident problems with air filter include the situation when the engine starts to malfunction, it turns float or it becomes hot and stuffy in the cab. All these problems are related to the air filter if there is no a separate air input device in the car. An important factor in the use of the air filter is a timely maintenance and proper operation of all elements of the car. This method of approaching eliminates the potential serious damage, as the details are not lead to the wearing state.

But if you need to change the air filter in car service centres they often suggest replacing of the oil and fuel filters. Do not hurry to buy all these spare car parts in service centres. First, you need to study the price list of online stores. We can assure you that in our online store the cost of car parts will be lower, but the delivery will be faster.

Diagnostics

For the DIY diagnosis it is necessary to remove the filter housing, which is often attached by clips or screws. Then you simply pull out the filter and inspect its condition.

Every 7000-8000 km check filter pollution. With a small level of contamination it can be gently shaken and blown. It is also necessary to check that the filter surface is dry. The presence of moisture or oil on the filter may be indicative of an oil leakage or damage to the radiator.

If you notice a significant damage to the material during replacement, you should also check cylinders and pistons of the engine, because the dust in the combustion chamber can completely disable the internal combustion engine.
