dirty air filter vs clean filter

Your vehicle's engine needs clean air to burn the fuel – and it needs a lot of clean air. In fact, a typical vehicle needs about 216,000 gallons of air for every tank of gas. All that air passes through a filter that catches the dust and dirt. Eventually, the filter gets completely full, and because the filter can only hold so much, dirt starts getting through. At Old Hickory Car Care Center in Jackson, we ensure you get the best air quality in your vehicle and explain the process of where this dirty air is going to our area drivers.
