What is a Cabin Air Filter Changes service?
Lube Stop’s Cabin Air Filter Changes service is the replacement of the dirty cabin air filter in your vehicle with a new, clean one. Your cabin air filter is responsible for removing pollutants from the air that you breathe while driving. It affects all air that comes into the interior through the heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems.
Lube Stop provides this service as needed. To determine if it is needed, we look for signs that the cabin air filter is dirty, clogged or worn. So, a visual inspection to detect dust or dirt is done. Following that, Lube Stop also inspects for musty odours or poor airflow within your vehicle. If they are present, we recommend replacing the filter to the customer. If the customer agrees, then we proceed with the Cabin Air Filter replacement service.
So, always bring any indicators of trouble to the attention of our Lube Stop technicians. These include signs of dirty filters, musty or dusty odours and poor airflow in your vehicle’s cabin. From there, we will trouble shoot and determine if you need to replace or change the filter.
We do this so you can enjoy the benefits of less air pollution, fewer allergens, better airflow and reduced engine strain.
What is a cabin air filter for?
The cabin air filter helps remove contaminants from your car’s cabin that can accumulate over time as you use your heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems. Clean cabin air is important because it not only reduces the harmful pollutants and allergens in the air you breathe while driving, but it also reduces stress on your engine. Like many other filter changes, this is important for the long term health of your engine.
When your air filter is dirty, your engine is forced to work harder, resulting in poor fuel economy, higher emissions and, possibly, a loss of engine power. In turn, as a worst-case scenario, a clogged cabin air filter can lead to under-performance of the A/C system, causing weak air flow from the cabin vents.
Cabin air filters are sometimes found behind the vehicle’s glove box or dashboard and accessed from inside the vehicle. Other times, these filters can be found under a vehicle’s hood and can be a little trickier to access.
Not all vehicles have a cabin air filter, but if yours does, choosing the correct cabin air filter for your vehicle is of the utmost importance. Some cabin air filters remove only dust, whereas others filter both dust and odours. Finding the right type of cabin air filter for your vehicle is crucial to making sure it actually gives you the benefits listed above.

Context for these Services
Your vehicle uses an internal combustion engine. This engine uses the combustion of fuel to power almost everything. This is done when fuel alongside an air oxidizer and spark plugs creates a working fluid flow circuit inside a combustion chamber.
In your internal combustion engine, the expansion of the high-temperature and high-pressure gases produced by combustion applies direct force to some component of the engine. The force is applied typically to pistons, turbine blades, rotors and nozzles. This force moves the component over a distance, transforming chemical energy into useful work.
Typically, your combustion engine is fed with fossil fuels like natural gas or petroleum products such as gasoline, diesel fuel or fuel oil. Your engine is the hub for many things, including those listed below.
- combustion chamber
- cylinder head
- set of spark plugs
- rocker arms
- fuel injectors
- connecting rods
- engine block
- timing system
- timing chain
All these work in unison to power all the other systems within your vehicle. Without a full functioning engine, everything else suffers. So, let us at Lube Stop keep your engine functioning and everything else that relies on it.
