Keep your engine clean and running efficiently with regular filter replacements from Outten Kia.
Several important systems in your vehicle's engine use filters to protect against dirt, dust and other harmful materials. But, like all filters, they need to be replaced regularly or the buildup of debris will keep these vital parts from doing their job.
The most common filter types are air filters, fuel filters, and transmission filters. If any of these important auto parts isn't working properly, you'll likely notice a change in engine performance overall. The time between replacements varies between different makes and models, but following the general recommendations below is a good idea if you aren't sure and can't consult your owner's manual.
Dust, dirt, and bugs are always in the air, so an air filter is needed to keep them from contaminating your engine. It's recommended you change your air filter ever 30,000 miles. You may also have a cabin air filter as well, which should be replaced once a year or every 15,000 miles to be sure the air you and your passengers are breathing inside the vehicle is pollutant-free.
A good fuel filter will keep harmful materials out of your fuel system, preserving optimal fuel efficiency. Replace yours every 25,000 miles.
Your transmission filter protects your transmission system, blocking any debris that may be in your vehicle's fluids from doing harm. Most technicians suggests changing yours every 50,000 miles.
