Here’s what goes into the determination of when to change the filter: First, your car owner’s manual will have a recommendation of when to change the filter. Second, a visual inspection by your Atlanta technician may determine that your filter it is visibly dirty and needs to be changed.
So between your owner’s manual and your Atlanta technician’s inspection there’s really no guesswork involved.
Now, most air filters purchased in East Point, Sandy Springs, or Doraville don’t cost a lot to replace. It’s just that Georgia people hate getting caught with an unexpected expense. On the plus side, though, changing a dirty air filter at Dekalb Tire Co., Inc. can often save enough on gas to pay for itself before your next oil change in Atlanta.
