One way to tell if your car's engine air filter needs to be replaced is if the car's gas mileage isn't as good as it used to be. This is because a dirty engine air filter can affect how efficient your vehicle is. Another sign your car's engine air filter needs to be replaced is if the car is misfiring. If you notice the engine isn't starting up as easily, it could be due to the car's engine filter needing to be changed. An extremely dirty filter impedes the flow of air to the engine. This can pollute the spark plugs, and your engine might misfire. It's most noticeable when the car is idling.
If the car's engine is making unusual sounds, this can be due to the air filter needing to be changed. If the car is vibrating, or you hear a slipping or coughing sound, it can be indicating that there is rough idling. This can be caused by a damaged spark plug from a clogged air filter. You also might notice decreased horsepower or the ability of the car to accelerate. The car's service engine light could also turn on. A mechanic can run codes and see if this is the case. You can also look at the engine and see if the air filter appears to be dirty. If it does, this means that it needs to be changed. You might even see black smoke or flames exiting the tailpipe.
