What Is the Difference Between an Engine Filter vs. Cabin Air Filter?

What Is the Difference Between an Engine Filter vs. Cabin Air Filter?

Most vehicles nowadays come equipped with both a cabin air filter and an engine air filter. These filters do similar jobs: keep contaminants out of critical systems in your vehicle. However, your engine air filter and cabin air filter both shield and preserve two very different systems in your vehicle. Today, our team will give you a breakdown and explain why it is essential to get these filters replaced seasonally.    Engine Air Filter Your engine air filter is situated underneath your engine’s hood, usually near the front of your engine. Its job is to keep debris, dust, and other harmful particles out of your engine. Your engine operates in a very restricted area with high heat and quick speeds, and even the smallest particle of dirt or dust can wreak havoc within your motor. If this happens, major engine components will ultimately break down. A clogged engine filter can also lead to reduced performance, increased emissions, and poor fuel economy.    Ca ... read more

Signs of a Damaged Torque Converter

Signs of a Damaged Torque Converter

All automatic transmission vehicles have a torque converter as a vital part of their transmission system. It is what enables the car or truck to shift automatically between gears while you are driving. Power from the engine is converted into hydraulic pressure. The torque converter is a very important, yet sensitive, piece of equipment that is prone to failure. It is one of the most common causes of internal transmission damage. Once a torque converter starts to malfunction, it can lead to all sorts of other issues.  Transmission fluid problems (too much, too little, too old/corroded) can also lead to torque converter damage, so it is important to maintain your transmission as part of your overall automotive preventative maintenance schedule. At the first sign of any transmission problems, especially torque converter issues, you should get your vehicle looked at by an automotive expert. Here are some of the si ... read more
