the relationship between engine performance and air filters in a car.

One of the causes of poor engine performance can be something as little as your air filter! Yes.

The power output of an engine is directly proportional to the amount of air it can inhale (through your air filter). If your filter is dirty and clogged, air flow into your engine is resisted and your car begins to gasp for air.

Check your filters today for the amount of debris in it. If it's been more than 7 months since you changed yours, you should consider doing so already.
