What is an Engine Air Filter Changes service?
Lube Stop’s Engine Air Filter Changes service is the replacement of the dirty engine air filter in your vehicle’s engine with a new, clean one. Your engine air filter is responsible for trapping particles like dirt, bugs, and other debris in the air before it flows into the engine. In other words, the engine air filter ensures the air entering your engine is clean and free of outside pollutants.
Lube Stop provides this service as needed. To determine if it is needed, we look for signs that the engine 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 poor fuel economy, poor acceleration, and smell of gas leaks. They also investigate engine noises or black smoke evident in the exhaust from soot building up on the spark plugs due to a dirty filter. If any of these are present, replacing the filter is recommended. If the customer agrees, then we proceed with the Engine 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, noticeably poor fuel economy or acceleration, and any smell of gas leaks. 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 good fuel economy, ignition, acceleration, and reliability.
What is an Engine Air Filter for?
The engine air filter helps prevent contaminants such as debris, bugs and dust from entering your vehicle’s engine. This helps with the better and longer performance of your engine. By filtering the contaminants in the air, you are allowing only clean air inside your engine. This results in better fuel economy, improved acceleration, and reduced emissions.
Choosing the correct engine air filter for your vehicle is of the utmost importance. Most engine air filters look very similar, but small differences in the shape and size can determine whether or not a particular filter will work on your vehicle. Using the wrong filter can cause insufficient air to flow through the engine or contaminants enter the engine if the filter is placed incorrectly.
It’s wise to change these out at least once a year even if you don’t notice any symptoms. Just ask your Lube Stop technician to advise you.

Why Do I Need an Engine Air Filter Changes service?
The Engine Air Filter Changes service is the replacement of the engine air filter used in vehicles to help keep the engine operating well. A clean filter helps your vehicle’s engine deliver lots of benefits. For example, fuel economy, strong acceleration, and reduced emissions. Not to mention, a reliable ride.
We do these filter changes so that our customers can avoid problems with the engine in their car, truck, or SUV. The engine air filter is an important maintenance item responsible for ensuring your engine works well and doesn’t break down.

That’s why we check the engine air filter every visit. We need to make sure that it is clean and functioning properly. We understand that it costs a little in the short run to change this engine air filter out. But it saves a lot in the long run.

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 fully functioning engine, everything else suffers. So, let us at Lube Stop keep your engine functioning and everything else that relies on it.
