Signs Your Vehicle Needs a New Air Filter

Air filters are integral to your vehicle in more ways than one, and Wheaton Cadillac is here to fill you in on when, how, and why you should tend to them. Whether you're based in Saskatoon, Warman, Martensville, North Battleford, Humboldt, or Prince Albert, SK, find out what role your filters play in your car and how to tell if they need replacing before booking an appointment online with our dealership's Service Centre.

What Does a Cabin Air Filter Do?

Your cabin air filter is what keeps impurities and contaminants from making their way through your vehicle's vents and into your cabin. By regularly tending to your filter, you'll ensure that clean air is consistently coming through your vents, which is especially important if you have allergies or respiratory problems.

Signs My Cabin Air Filter Needs to Be Changed

  • Poor airflow when the ventilation system is in use
  • An unpleasant, moldy odour coming from the vents, often due to dirt and particle buildup
  • Increased fan noise

Tips On How to Change the Cabin Air Filter

Cabin air filter replacement is usually best left in the hands of a professional, and luckily, our factory-trained technicians have the know-how to swap your old filter out for a new one, so you can enjoy clean air at the wheel. Contact our Parts and Service Centre today to get your cabin air filter replaced with minimal delay.

What Does an Engine Air Filter Do?

Like your cabin filter, the engine air filter helps keep impurities, dirt, and various other pests from making their way into your engine and potentially causing damage. It also ensures that your engine gets the clean air it needs for proper combustion.

Signs My Engine Air Filter Needs to Be Changed

  • Poor fuel efficiency
  • Repeated ignition problems
  • Sluggish, laboured vehicle acceleration
  • A pronounced smell of gasoline when starting your car
  • A gray, dirty-looking filter

We can fit your vehicle with new cabin and engine air filters on your next service appointment and provide you with all the tips you'll need to keep tabs on their condition. Contact us at Wheaton Cadillac today for more information.
