April 11, 2017

Every Omaha car owner who has taken their car in for an oil change has been told that their engine air filter's dirty.

Here's what goes into the determination of when to change the filter: First, your vehicle owner's manual will have a recommendation of when the filter should be replaced.

So between your owner's manual and your Omaha technician's inspection there's really no guesswork involved for Omaha drivers.

Now, most air filters purchased in Omaha don't cost a lot to replace. It's just that Nebraska people hate getting caught with an unexpected expense. On the plus side, though, changing a dirty air filter at Tuffy Omaha (Evans St) can often save enough on gas to pay for itself before your next oil change in Omaha.

Think about a dirty furnace filter in your Omaha home. When it's all clogged up, enough clean air can't get through.
