Dirt and debris can get into your throttle body and air intake and deposit on other engine parts like your carburetor or fuel injectors and spark plugs. Dust, pollen, and other allergens, on the other hand, can accumulate in the ducts and on the fans and vents of your HVAC system.
The best way to capture it all before that happens is to install a genuine Acura air filter. Your vehicle has two types: an engine air filter and a cabin air filter. Eventually, though, they clog. They cause problems for driving when they do. A blocked engine air filter forces an engine to burn extra air and fuel unnecessarily, leading to misfires, higher emissions, lower fuel economy, and engine performance issues. A blocked cabin air filter cuts airflow, making it harder to heat and cool your interior, reducing air quality, and stressing your motor.
How to Recognize Failing Air FiltersLuckily, it's easy to tell when you should change air filters. Look for signs like a lit Check Engine light, brittle or discolored fibers, and accumulated muck. For engine filters specifically, listen for unusual engine noise and look for excessive exhaust smoke. For cabin filters, smell for unpleasant odors.
