The engine in your Honda or Acura relies on a mixture of air and fuel to create power in the combustion chamber. Your air filter is responsible for making sure that the air used in this process is clean and free of any harmful debris. The engine needs fresh oxygen to use in the combustion of fuel. If the air that comes in is dirty it will both weaken the power being put out by the engine and wear down the inner mechanisms of the engine very quickly. Replacing an engine is much more costly and tedious to do than replacing an air filter, so save yourself the money, time, and effort by making sure your air filter is regularly replaced. There are some signs that might indicate you need a replacement. One of the top ones is a decrease in fuel economy. The engine will sometimes compensate for a lack of clean air by using more fuel to get power. Another thing you might experience is a misfiring engine. This can be caused by a dirty air filter causing particles to settle on your spark plugs, which can have a hard time generating the necessary spark when starting the car.
