Every Evanston car owner who has taken their car in for an oil change may have been told that they may need to change their engine air filter.
Here’s what goes into the determination of when to change the filter: First, your vehicle owner’s manual will have a recommendation of when the filter should be replaced.
So between your owner’s manual and your Evanston technician’s inspection there’s really no guesswork involved for Evanston drivers.
Now, most air filters purchased in Evanston don’t cost a lot to replace. It’s just that Illinois people hate getting caught with an unexpected expense.
