Why is Changing the Engine Air Filter in Your Volkswagen so Important?
The German engineered engine in your Volkswagen runs by combusting a mixture of fuel and air. Since the air going inside the engine must be free of dirt and other debris, a filter is placed in the intake. Over time, this filter will become clogged with the dust and particulate that it keeps from entering the engine which causes the airflow to be reduced. With reduced airflow, your engine must work harder to produce the same power which will also reduce your fuel economy. If not addressed at all, a dirty air filter can eventually cause the engine to not run at all.
How Often Should Your Engine Air Filter be Replaced?
Depending on where and how often you drive, the general rule is to have the engine air filter replaced every 15,000 miles or every other engine oil change. Your owner’s manual should have a schedule for changing the air filter in your VW model, but we recommend speaking with one of our service advisers for the air filter replacement schedule that best meets your specific needs.
