The factory air filters that came with your Honda vehicle do a stellar job of protecting your engine and air conditioning and heating systems. If they didn't, both your vehicle's performance and your personal comfort would suffer.
How Do Your Air Filters Work?
Your engine air filter sits at the front of the engine bay on the engine's intake, gathering dirt and debris before they can find their way into the engine and cause problems. Your cabin air filter is typically located behind the glove compartment. It keeps the air flowing into your passenger space from your heating and air conditioning system free of airborne pollutants.
Signs of Bad Air Filters
Be on the lookout for:
- Your "Check Engine" light alerting
- Misfiring engine
- Worsening fuel efficiency
- Odd engine noises
- Diminished horsepower
- Inconsistent cabin temperature
- Foul or moldy smells inside your vehicle
- A whistling noise from the air vents
You should expect to change your air filters every 12,000-15,000 miles, though your owner's manual will detail your recommended schedule. When it is time to replace them, don't make the mistake of using generic aftermarket filters. They aren't designed to your model's specifications, so they aren't guaranteed to fit properly. If that's the case, it's easier for pollutants to get into your engine or passenger space. That can damage your engine cylinders and may even lead to a cracked engine block. You could experience more allergic reactions. Our auto parts department has the original Honda air filters made for your vehicle in stock and ready to send out.
