Your vehicle has a number of different filters and each one works in a different system in your car. Quite simply- a filter traps particles which should not be present in, or could do damage to, the system which it filters. Therefore all filters have a lifespan - once they get congested with the particles they are filtering - replacement is a must. Not replacing filters in your car when they need to be changed can lead to expensive breakdowns in some very important parts of your vehicle.
Oil Filter: Cleans the oil and allows it to flow through the engine better
Air Filter: Traps dirt particles which could damage cylinders, walls and pistons
Cabin Air Filter: Keeps pollen, dust and bacteria out of the ventilation system
Fuel Filter: Filters harmful contaminants which could do damage to carburettors or fuel injectors
