Air Filter Replacement Hyundai Terracan

Replacing the air filter is one of the usual operations, its replacement being necessary at every overhaul of your car’s engine!

The replacement of the air filter should never be neglected, because it can affect the performance and life of the engine.

For a proper operation, the car engine needs not only fuel but also a large amount of clean air to maintain the combustion.

For every 100 km, the engine needs about 120 cubic meters of air from the atmosphere.

The purpose of the air filter is to filter the air from the atmosphere and not allow insects, dust, sand or other particles to enter the combustion chamber.

Over time, the filter is loaded with external agents and no longer allows the passage of a sufficient amount of air to the combustion chamber of the engine.

When the air filter is loaded with particles, not enough oxygen will reach the engine to make the correct mixture of fuel and air. As a result, in this combustion process the fuel will come to predominate, which will be burned in ever greater quantities.

When should the air filter be changed?

Each car manufacturer has its own recommendations for the interval at which the air filter must be replaced with a new one. This interval can vary between 10,000 – 30,000 km.

This is an informative value, which can be influenced by the place where you mainly drive.

In big and congested cities, with a lot of dust, it is good to change the air filter right at the halfway point of the interval indicated by the manufacturer.
