The Benefits of Having Air Filter Cleaning
Even though they differ excessively both the car and truck engine needs air filters for cleaning. An air filter in a relatively small truck should take in large air volumes. The air filters are cheap, and they have the capability to prevent dirt and debris to get in the engine as they may cause damage in it. The volume of air passing through the air filters of a diesel truck are not realized by many people. It is extremely large volumes of air that require being cleaned first thus ensuring proper performance as well as burn.
Trapping of dust and it sticking on to the air cleaner occurs when air flows into the air filter. This is the first defensive measure for an air filter system. The dust which has been trapped is stuck on the walls of the cleaner, and the already trapped dust stuck on the filter walls. A little dirty air cleaner will thus work better than that air cleaner which is clean.
In order to reduce air pollution, to make the engine more efficient which results to more power for the truck and a better fuel economy for the country at large the right air cleaning filters ought to be used for the motor engines. It is very misleading when the lube, as well as the truck diesel oil companies, advise their customers to change the motor air cleaning system every time they decide to change the engine oil. The purpose for this is that when the air cleaner has dirt on, this dirt helps to collect dust and other debris that flows with the air flowing in the cleaner.
By doing this the customers reduce their truck engine lasting life. Being aware of issues arising from the air cleaning system is one of the best step to increase the fuel economy irrespective of whether your motor is being driven by straight diesel, biodiesel or the hybrid diesel noting the truck technology think tank team. Some of the truck manufacturers claim that the original air filter on the truck can operate well for one hundred and twenty thousand miles before it can be replaced with a new one.
The average truck diesel engine consumes between eight thousand and ten thousand air gallons per fuel gallon which is burned. The air despite its huge volume and quantity of intake must be cleaned before it is applied in fuel combustion. If the dirt manages to get in the cylinder walls of the air filters and goes to mix with the engine oil on the cylinder walls you will start experiencing the problem for this.
