Most Hondas are equipped with an air filter to remove dust, pollen and debris from outside air that enters the passenger cabin through the heating and air conditioning system.
As the cabin air filter gets dirty, air flow becomes restricted and the volume and velocity of air exiting the ventilation ducts reduces. Periodic replacement of the cabin air filter is specified in the Maintenance section of your Honda’s Owner’s Manual. More frequent replacement may be necessary if you often drive in dusty conditions.
Your Honda’s engine has an intake air cleaner which contains an air filter element that prevents foreign materials such as dust and debris from entering the cylinders. If foreign materials make their way into the engine, they cause internal damage and premature wear.
Whenever the engine is running, the air filter is removing and collecting foreign materials from the intake air and will eventually accumulate enough that replacement will be necessary. A clogged air filter affects engine performance and can increase fuel consumption and contribute to engine oil contamination.
Air filter inspection and replacement is required at specific maintenance intervals, as indicated in the Owner’s Manual or by the Maintenance Minder system, if equipped. If you often drive in dusty conditions, more frequent replacement may be necessary.
Your Honda dealer can provide and install the correct, Genuine Honda filter for your vehicle.
