If you drive a vehicle with a gasoline engine, air is one of the four main components it needs to operate (the other three are spark, compression, and fuel). Diesel engines are similar, but they do not use spark. As the air is drawn into your vehicle, it mixes with the fuel to create a mixture that is injected into the engine’s cylinders. This fuel and air mixture is ignited in the cylinders, creating the combustion that powers the engine.
Your vehicle’s engine draws air from outside; however, outside air is filled with contaminants like bugs, dust, pollen, mold spores, and more. The engine air filter keeps all of these contaminants from entering your engine’s combustion chambers so that only clean air enters.
As time passes, the engine air filter will become clogged with the contaminants that it blocks. This means that less air will be able to pass through. As a result, the fuel and air mixture may have a ratio that is too rich (meaning that there is too much fuel and not enough air). This can cause your engine to put out less power and become less fuel-efficient. Replacing the engine air filter can restore your engine to its earlier performance.
