Clean Air is Important for You and for Your Vehicle

April 23rd, 2018 by

Air filters are designed to clean circulating air by removing particles and other contaminants from the air before it passes to important engine components or into the air the vehicle passengers are breathing. If these filters are clogged or compromised, then damage to the engine may occur, and we will suffer from air quality issues within the cabin.

The air filter for the engine usually has a pleated paper part and a foam breather element that work together to contain particles in the air that emanate from the positive crankcase ventilation valve. A dirty and clogged engine air filter can cause a reduction in acceleration. The cabin area in your vehicle has a ventilation system that uses a filter to remove pollen, mold spores, dust and other contaminants in order to improve the air quality.

These filters need replacing at regular intervals as suggested by the auto manufacturer, and we here at Mercedes-Benz of Des Moines will be happy to provide you with this service.
