Engine Air Filter 101

The certified technicians at Germain Volkswagen of Columbus know that the engine air filter is a vital part that screens incoming air before it is sent into the fuel induction system. It collects airborne debris, such as dust, sand, road salt, dead insects, and everything else that might be stuck in the air. If the filter does not collect airborne debris, the debris can get inside the engine where it wreaks havoc to cause excessive engine wear or damages.

When Should I Replace My Engine Air Filter?

We follow Volkswagen's recommendation for each model when it comes to replacing the filter. Volkswagen generally recommends filter replacement at a 30,000-mile interval but this can vary slightly according to specific models. By referencing the owner's manual or giving us a call, you can know the replacement schedule if you want to be sure! We also share with our customers that there are certain conditions, such as driving on gravel or dirt roads, that can cause the filter to clog and lose integrity prematurely. By following these two replacement guidelines, everyone can know precisely when it's best to replace the filter: 

  1. At the specified maintenance schedule
  2. In response to symptoms of a defective filter

Symptoms of a Defective Engine Air Filter
