How Often Do I Need to Change My Engine Air Filter?

Overlooking your engine air filter happens a lot. Even so, it’s a significant part of maintaining your Toyota car, truck, or SUV. How often do I need to change my engine air filter? This depends on the make and model of your vehicle, but most Toyota experts at the Findlay Toyota service center recommend that a new air filter be installed every 30,000 to 45,000 miles. 

Drivers can always refer to their owner’s manual for the recommended schedule for their service. If you need further assistance replacing your engine air filter, visit the service center in Henderson, and our Toyota-trained and certified technicians are ready to assist!

What Does an Engine Air Filter Do?

The engine air filter works to prevent dust, sand, dirt, and other contaminants from getting inside the engine. The filter can get dirty and clogged over time, lowering its effectiveness and negatively affecting the way your vehicle performs on the Boulder City streets. There are warning signs that indicate your engine air filter should get replaced soon. Those signs include:

  • Sluggish acceleration
  • Misfiring spark plugs
  • Black smoke from the exhaust
  • Service Engine light comes on

Also, a dirty or clogged engine air filter will affect gas mileage, although this change is typically minor and not apparent to most Boulder City drivers.

Air Filter Replacement Schedule

Are you wondering how often should you change the engine air filter? Details on when you should replace your engine air filter will be in your owner’s manual. However, if you do a lot of driving on gravel or dirt roads, or in heavy traffic on hot days, it’s important to change the filter more often. With most Toyota cars, it’s easy to access the air filter so you can regularly check it. You can even replace the filter yourself! Open the air filter compartment, remove the old filter, and add the new one. If you would prefer, make the short drive to our Pahrump-area service center where our mechanics can replace the engine air filter.
