essential for proper fuel combustion in the cylinders. If you notice reduced
engine performance, especially at high speed, your air filter may be dirty.
A clogged filter will also reduce your gas mileage. You should inspect
the air filter every time you change the oil. You should be able to see
bright, such as sun light through the filter at all points. If you cannot,
it should be replaced. If the filter is only slightly dirty, you can try
cleaning it by tapping it on a flat surface or by blowing compressed air
through it, from the clean side out. You'll find that you need to replace
your air filter more often if you frequently drive on dirt roads or live
in a dusty area.
