When should you replace your vehicle’s air filter?

Air Filter

When the airflow in your vehicle is significantly blocked, it’s time to replace your vehicle’s air filter. A clogged filter results in lousy fuel economy and subpar performance. It’s crucial to replace your air filter before it completely compromises airflow, but it’s also beneficial to have a slightly dirty air filter to block out tiny particles. So, if you’re wondering how often you should change your air filter or when to change your air filter, All Star Scion of Baton Rouge is here with the answers!

Every vehicle’s maintenance schedule is different, but on average, Scion suggests your vehicle’s air filter should be changed every 15,000-20,000. Every vehicle is different and some can go longer than others, but you also need to take into consideration how much you’re driving, and what your driving conditions are. If you’re driving on the highway every day for work or school, then your vehicle’s air filter won’t have to be replaced until you hit 20,000. But if you’re driving on dirt roads and gravel, then you will probably need to replace your vehicle’s air filter before the 15,000 mile mark. If you’re still unsure about when you should replace your vehicle’s air filter, you can schedule a maintenance appointment and have one of our highly trained technicians take a look at it!

Cruise Through the Cold

Cruise Through The Cold

As the temperature drops, we want to make sure you are taking the proper measures to care for your Scion. In Louisiana, we mainly drive around in warm weather. Although we only experience chilly weather for a few months out of the year, it’s important to be prepared.

Here are 5 Cold Car Care Tips to hold onto for your Scion:

  1. Keep your vehicle’s battery charged as batteries become weak in colder weather. Also, see when you need to get your battery replaced. They last for three to five years, on average. It may be time for a replacement!
  2. Have your brakes checked. If roads become slippery, you will want to ensure that your car will brake correctly and safely.
  3. Make sure your heaters, defrosters and wiper blades are in good condition. Low visibility can make driving in cold weather very dangerous.
  4. Keep your gas tank full. Do you normally drive until you use up every last drop of gas? That is not smart during the extreme temperature changes! Condensation forms on the inside of your gas tank, and if enough water forms on the fuel line, it can freeze. So be sure to refill your tank, regularly!
  5. Check your tire pressure. The extreme temperature changes can affect the air in your tires. The air in your tires is actually what carries your vehicle as you drive, not your wheels. Therefore, it is important to maintain.

Here in Louisiana, our weather is constantly changing. That is why our team suggests that you stay prepared by keeping your vehicle in the best shape that you can for any situation you may encounter. Hold on to the 5 Cold Car Care Tips to keep your Scion just like the day you purchased it.
