Learning About Your Car's Filters and When to Replace Them

Engine Filter

The engine filter is located behind the grille of your car, right behind the air intake valve. As your car brings outside air into the engine to keep it cool and help convert fuel into aerosol, this filter keeps contaminants out that can damage your engine, including dirt, dust, leaves, and other air particles. Your engine's air filter should be changed out between every 12,000-15,000 miles. As the air filter degrades, it can lead to several potentially hazardous consequences, including:

  • Decreased fuel economy
  • Sluggish acceleration
  • Odd noises from engine
  • Increased tailpipe emission
  • "Check Engine" light active

Cabin Air Filter

On most cars, the cabin air filter is located behind the glove compartment. This filter keeps dust, dirt, aerosols, and other harmful contaminants from entering the vehicle through the air conditioning system as you drive through Long Beach, NY. The cabin filter should be replaced between 15,000-30,000 miles and, like the engine air filter, it will look noticeably discolored as it wears down. Failure to replace the cabin filter can result in:

  • Diminished airflow/recirculation
  • Lack of cool air when A/C active
  • Air hose/conditioning system clogging
  • Persistent musty smell in car

Oil Filter

The oil filter is in your Mitsubishi's engine and keeps the gears free from metal shavings, dirt, and other particulates which can come in from the engine or oil. This filter ensures the oil lubricating your car's engine stays fresh for as long as possible. However, your oil filter and the oil in your system should be replaced as both will degrade, with the engine turning to sludge. Failure to address the oil change can result in decreased fuel economy and engine damage from increased friction.

Fuel Filter

You might not know about the fuel filter, but it is an essential part of all gas-powered vehicles and prevents contaminants from fuel service stations, and gas itself, from entering your engine. The fuel filter is usually located next to the main storage tank and often looks like a cylinder with multiple hose attached to it. The fuel filter typically lasts the longest and may only need to be changed out between 20,000 and 150,000 miles.

However, when you need to change it depends on a variety of factors, including how much you drive and how old your vehicle is. Most newer models have fuel filters built to last, but an older car, seven years or older might need to have this part replaced soon, especially if it has been driven a lot in its life.

The Importance of Genuine OEM Parts

Like any component or accessory, it always helps to replace the various filters of your car with genuine OEM ones. Engine and cabin air filters come in all different shapes and sizes, so buying an aftermarket, generic-brand one can be a hassle, as you comb through dozens of them looking for the right match. The filters you buy at your local auto parts store may not prove to be the best fits, and do not often have a long-lasting guarantee. When you buy genuine Mitsubishi filters for your car, you are getting something guaranteed to last and fit exactly right for your new or used vehicle in Brooklyn, NY.

Buying from South Shore Mitsubishi is one of the best ways to get genuine OEM filter replacements for your vehicle. Each month, our parts coupons have great ways to save on parts like these, and you can make an appointment with our service center for installation. All our technicians are certified Mitsubishi mechanics with lots of skill in this brand. These mechanics are a great source for feedback on your car's other current and future maintenance needs.
