Engine Air Filter Replacement
Jiffy Lube® Engine Air Filtration Service Keeps Your Engine Breathing Easy!
A clean engine air filter and air filtration system allows your car’s engine to “breathe” in the clean air it needs to combine with fuel to produce the combustible power you need to get around in the Chicago or Northwest Indiana area. Dirt particles that work their way into the engine can cause serious problems. Our Air Filtration Service is designed to keep your automobile’s air filter and other system components clear of dirt and blockages. We check and change the air filter so you can breathe a littler easier too.
Every time a vehicle’s driver presses the gas pedal, they are controlling how much air and fuel enters the engine. The Engine Air Filtration system aids in filtering the air’s contaminants and helps to ensure the correct air/fuel mixture.
The Engine Air Filtration System may consist of the following components:
- Engine Air Filter
- Breather Element, if equipped
- PCV Valve, if equipped
The Engine Air Filter reduces harmful dirt particles from entering the engine’s air intake system where they may cause engine damage.
The Breather Element 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 cankcase 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.
As part of the Jiffy Lube Signature Service® Oil Change, we visually inspect the Engine Air Filtration System components and recommend replacement, as necessary.
Passenger Cabin Air Filter Replacement
The climate control system in your passenger cabin includes a filter element that helps remove dust, pollen, mold spores and other particulates from the air you and your passengers breathe. The cabin air filter is visually inspected and replaced if necessary.
