Most manufacturers recommend replacing the engine’s air filter every 15,000 miles or so. This interval can vary greatly depending on the types of roads the vehicle is driven on (dirt roads vs. highways, etc.). We inspect the condition of your air filter at every oil change visit, typically about every 5,000 miles.
