THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CABIN AND ENGINE AIR FILTERS

November 18th, 2022 by

Cabin and engine air filters are commonly confused with one another. Our Team Mazda team wants you to be informed. We hope the following guide helps you understand the difference between these two crucial components.

Cabin air filters keep dirt, dust, and other contaminants out of the air that passes through your heating, cooling, and ventilation systems. This is important so you and your passengers can breathe clean air. When you notice extra dust on your dashboard, reduced airflow, or an odor, it’s time to change your cabin air filter.

Engine air filters keep the same types of contaminants from getting into your engine. This is crucial for keeping your vehicle moving smoothly and preserving your engine’s longevity. When your vehicle doesn’t accelerate as quickly on Caldwell, ID roads emit black smoke, or the check engine light illuminates, your engine air filter needs changing.
