Kia Engine Air Filter Replacement Service

Kia Engine Air Filter Service in Columbus, OH

Is your Kia car or SUV due for a new engine air filter? We offer an engine air filter replacement service at Germain Kia of Columbus! Every Kia was engineered with an engine air filter that screens ambient air before it is mixed with fuel and injected into the combustion chamber. The engine air filter requires frequent replacement service because it is made of a paper material that continuously collects dust, dirt, pollen, mold, and salt before it can get inside the engine to cause damage. Eventually, the engine air filter will get increasingly dirty until it is clogged. Significant clogging also leads to tearing that renders the engine air filter worthless in terms of protecting the engine.

New Engine Air Filters and Fuel Economy

The United States Department of Energy has found that a defective engine air filter can decrease horsepower and acceleration by 11%. This means our engine air filter replacement service is a convenient and easy way of protecting your engine and vehicle investment while reducing operational costs. 

Small Part yet Essential to the Engine

For such a relatively inexpensive part, the engine air filter is critical because of its engine-protecting responsibility. Following the recommended maintenance schedule for an engine air filter replacement is an easy way of knowing that it keeps the air clean. However, these filters are designed out of paper and are prone to wear and tear before the maintenance interval due to driving factors, such as driving on unpaved roads or in dusty environments. If you start experiencing any symptoms associated with a defective filter, then fixing the problem is quick and easy by stopping by Germain Kia of Columbus for an express engine air filter service without an appointment.

Symptoms of a Defective Engine Air Filter

Here are the common symptoms associated with a defective Engine Air Filter:

  • Decreased fuel efficiency
  • Reduced acceleration/horsepower
  • Engine misfires
  • Strange engine noises
  • Check engine light is on
  • The filter has clogged or dirty paper
  • Gas odor when starting the engine

Genuine Engine Air Filter Replacement Service at Germain Kia

Genuine replacement parts are better than aftermarket knockoffs. When you get a genuine Kia part, you know that the filter was meticulously designed and rigorously tested for performance in your exact model. With your engine's performance and life at risk, Germain Kia only recommends that a certified technician replace defective filters with genuine OEM parts.
