Air Filter Services
Every time a vehicle’s driver presses the gas pedal, they are controlling how much air and fuel enters the engine. The Engine Air Filter system aids in filtering the air’s contaminants and helps to ensure the correct air/fuel mixture.
The Engine Air Filters System may consist of the following components:
- Engine Air Filter
- Breather Element, if equipped
- PCV Valve, if equipped
The Engine Air Filter is typically a paper element that reduces harmful dirt particles from entering the engine’s air intake system where they may cause engine damage. Replacing a dirty air filter can increase your fuel mileage by up to 10%.
The Breather Element is typically a paper or foam element that helps filter the air pulled into the engine crankcase by the Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) system or a metered orifice.
The PCV Valve or metered orifice regulates the flow of crankcase fumes into the intake manifold so they can be burned and help maintain proper crankcase pressure.
As Engine Air Filtration components become restricted, airflow is reduced, which could lead to poor acceleration, reduced engine performance, reduced fuel economy, oil leaks as well as other issues.
Our service: As part of the Jiffy Lube Signature Service® Oil Change, we visually inspect the Engine Air Filter System components and recommend replacement, as necessary.
