How Often to Change Your Engine Air Filter

Dirty Engine Air Filter

Replacing a dirty engine air filter is a crucial part of maintaining your vehicle. So, how often should you change the engine air filter in your BMW? You should schedule an engine air filter replacement every 30,000 to 45,000 miles. However, it’s always best to check your owner’s manual to find out how often to change the engine air filter in your specific BMW model. If you need help replacing your engine air filter, just stop by BMW of Warwick and let our certified auto technicians take care of the job for you. Learn more from the experts in our Service Center, and if you are in need of an engine air filter replacement near East Greenwich, schedule an appointment with us today!

What Does an Engine Air Filter Do?

The engine air filter is designed to keep dirt, dust, sand, and other contaminants from getting inside the engine. A dirty engine air filter restricts the air supply to the engine, which can cause unburned fuel to form a residue that accumulates on the spark plug, negatively affecting your vehicle’s performance. Some of the warning signs that indicate you are in need of an engine filter replacement include:

  • Sluggish acceleration
  • Misfiring spark plugs
  • Black smoke from the exhaust
  • Engine warning light comes on

Air Filter Replacement Schedule

You’ll find the recommended schedule for how often you should change your air filter in your owner’s manual, but if you often drive on dirt or gravel roads, or in heavy traffic on hot days, you should change the filter more often. The engine air filter is easy to access on most vehicles, so it’s a good idea to check it visually from time to time. It’s also easy to replace the filter yourself. Just open the air filter compartment, remove the old filter, and drop in a new one. We carry BMW engine air filters in the Parts Center at BMW of Warwick, and if you’d rather have a professional install your replacement engine air filter, our certified technicians can handle the job for you.
