Lexus Air Filter

There are two main air filters in your Lexus. The engine air filter is located in the engine bay and is used to filter out harmful particles that may cause damage to your vehicle's engine. If the engine air filter is not replaced at the appropriate intervals, the build-up can affect the performance of your engine and lead to both a loss of power and loss in fuel efficiency.

The cabin air filter is located either behind the glove compartment, under the dashboard, or under the hood of your vehicle. In most cases, it will be located behind the glove box. Just like engine air filters, cabin air filters in your Lexus are designed to clean the air as it moves through your heating, air conditioning, and ventilation system. The cabin air filter removes allergens such as pollen and dust. It will also trap pollutants such as smog & mold or other hazardous fumes.

Lexus Engine Air Filter

Simply put, the main purpose of your Lexus engine air filter is to clean the air from harmful particles such as dust, dirt, and other debris before it goes into your engine. All engines require a healthy supply of air in order to burn fuel. Any foreign materials can damage your engine and become quite costly to repair which is why you should always have your Lexus mechanic check your filters during every visit. At Plaza Lexus, we will perform a multi-point inspection for you free of charge. Schedule your appointment today!

Lexus Cabin Air Filter

The basic function of your cabin air filter is to filter the air that travels through your heating and cooling ventilation system into your vehicle. This filter can catch harmful pollutants & allergens including mold, pollen, smog, or dust.

Lexus Air Filter Replacement

Air filters on your vehicle should be checked every 10,000 miles but typically a replacement is only necessary every 15,000 to 30,000 miles depending on your driving habits. In some extreme cases, your engine air filter may need to be replaced every 10,000 miles. The cabin air filter, however, should be changed more frequently to keep you and your passengers from breathing in allergens. Always check your Lexus maintenance guide located in your owner's manual for the most up-to-date maintenance recommendations.

How often should you replace car air filter?

Your Lexus service manual states you should replace your engine air filter & cabin air filter every 10,000 miles in extreme conditions and every 15,000-30,000 miles in normal driving conditions. It's important to have your filters checked every time you take your vehicle in for an oil change. At Plaza Lexus, we do this for free every time you visit. Since it's relatively inexpensive, if you live in a high pollutant area or an area with a high pollen count, it's a great idea for you to change your filters once per year.
