The other week, I took the family car to the shop for just an oil change. I still had some miles left until I desperately had to have it changed. But I didn’t want to even risk it as well as I was already in town. So, my car is leased and one of the multiple benefits of this is all our servicing is then free. It’s so nice just dropping the car off as well as then having it all fixed up for absolutely free! Typically, it may take them a minute to replace that oil, so I normally just sit in the waiting room so I can just read. However, when I was in there last, I’d been sitting for over an hour so I began to worry. I went on and asked an employee about when our car might be finished. She told me while they were still replacing the oil they had checked our air filter. It was just so black as well as well passed due for a replacement that they were happy to replace it quickly. Thankfully, it didn’t really take much longer, when they showed me the paperwork as well as handed me back the keys the mechanic asked me if I had been smelling gas upon starting the car, faster loss in gas volume, or even reduced horsepower. As I was thinking about it, I simply told him I was but didn’t notice really anything of it. Apparently, the air filter needs to really be replaced because it was causing all of these other problems in our family car. He told me it was essential to have the car air filter changed but at least once a year. I could ask our car mechanic to replace it when I came in for our regular oil changes.
