When you took ownership of your Acura vehicle, it came with an air filter already installed at the factory. That's a good thing. The air filter help ensure that your engine operates are full capacity, delivering the smooth performance you expect.
How Your Air Filter Works
The engine air filter does exactly what it's named implies. It removes harmful contaminants and dirt before they can make their way into your motor. If you let yours go too long without replacement, your engine performance will begin to suffer as carbon begins to build up.
Signs of a Failing Air Filter
Eventually even the top-quality Acura air filter that came in your car or SUV will get too dirty to perform its best. Indications of this include:
- Misfiring engine
- Worsening fuel economy
- Weaker horsepower

If you're not noticing signs of an air filter going bad, check your owner's manual for the recommended maintenance schedule. It's important to note that you may need to change yours early than recommended if you drive a lot on dirt or gravel roads.
