Your vehicle has two air filters to capture airborne contaminants. One is for your engine. It helps keep dirt and debris out of your air intake, off your fuel injectors and spark plugs, and away from other engine parts. The other is for your cabin. It helps keep dust, pollen, and other allergens out of the ducts and off the vents in your heater and air conditioner.
Unfortunately, no air filter lasts indefinitely. Sooner or later, both can choke off with muck and degrade. When that happens, they stop working as well, and other problems often follow. To keep your engine and car HVAC working properly, then, be sure to change your air filters regularly, every 12,000 to 15,000 miles or so. Check your owner's manual for more info on when to do so.
Luckily, there are signs you can look for, too, to tell you it's time. Besides a lit Check Engine light on your dash, they include filter blockage and wear, an unclean-smelling cabin, engine stress, strange engine noises, engine misfires, worsening fuel economy and emissions, and heating and air conditioning issues. If you're seeing any such symptoms, your filters probably need replacement.
