Why replace the engine air filter?
Your Mazda’s engine has an intake air cleaner which contains an air filter element that prevents foreign materials such as dust and debris from entering the cylinders. If foreign materials make their way into the engine, they cause internal damage and premature wear. Whenever the engine is running, the air filter is removing and collecting foreign materials from the intake air and will eventually accumulate enough that replacement will be necessary. A clogged air filter affects engine performance and can increase fuel consumption and contribute to engine oil contamination.
Is it time to change my engine air filter?
Mazda recommends an engine air filter inspection every 8,000 kms or 6 months – and a replacement every 56,000 kms as part of the current Mazda Scheduled Maintenance Menu. If you often drive in dusty conditions, more frequent replacement may be necessary. We can provide and install the correct Genuine Mazda engine air filter for your vehicle.
