Chevy Silverado Air Filter For the Engine

The first type of Chevy Silverado air filter is the engine air filter. Its purpose is to clean the air from and filter out harmful particles like dust and dirt so they doesn’t go into your engine. All engines need an adequate supply of air to burn fuel. Debris can damage your engine, which is why the service team at Penske Chevrolet checks your air filters during nearly every visit.

Chevy Silverado Air Filter For the Cabin

The primary function of your cabin air filter is to clean the air that travels into your heating and cooling ventilation system and enters the cabin. This cabin air filter can prevent harmful pollutants and allergens that can cause health issues, such as smog, pollen, mold, or dust.

When to Schedule Silverado Air Filter Changes

Usually, vehicle air filters should be changed about once a year or every 12,000-15,000 miles. But if you drive around places beyond Westfield with poor air quality or lots of construction, or drive often on dirt roads, you should do a Silverado air filter change more frequently. So, how long do air filters last? It depends on the conditions, but here are some signs to look out for that will indicate that it’s time for an air filter replacement:

  1. You notice a lingering unpleasant odor in your cabin
  2. Reduced air flow when your heater or A/C is on
  3. More dust than usual settling on vehicle surfaces

How Much Does an Air Filter Cost?

The cost of an air filter varies depending on your vehicle and whether you need a cabin or engine air filter. Still, an air filter usually costs between $35 and $75, but call for a quote.
