Volkswagen Engine Air Filter Replacement in St. Louis, MO

Volkswagen recommends that most models replace the engine air filter every 30,000 miles to promote engine performance and prevent damage. Newer Volkswagen drivers can simply get the engine air filter replaced alongside every third full-synthetic oil change. This filter seems simple and might appear unimportant, but rest assured that this is a vital part for reliable engine performance and efficiency. Make plans for your engine air filter replacement service today at Suntrup Volkswagen.

Engine Air Filter Maintenance

The engine generates drive power by combusting an air-fuel mix provided by the fuel induction system. The best air for creating the perfect air-fuel mix is the cleanest air. The engine air filter is a small yet vital component that removes airborne debris from the air before it enters the fuel induction system and the engine’s combustion chamber. You can expect the engine air filter to require replacement maintenance because it gets clogged with the debris that it prevents from entering the engine. The engine air filter replacement service interval is detailed in the Volkswagen owner’s manual by miles.
