Question

My car has a bad odor when I run the heater or air conditioner. My friend said I might need a new cabin air filter – what’s that?

West Coast Muffler & Auto Repair Answer

A cabin air filter is a special filter that cleans the air that comes into the Ukiah car owners' passenger compartments – or cabin – of their vehicles. Most new vehicles sold in CA now have a cabin air filter. A cabin air filter catches dust, pollen, spores and other harmful pollutants before they can get into your cabin. It’s kind of like the filter on your furnace in your Ukiah home, cleaning the air you breathe inside your Automobile.

As Ukiah auto owners can imagine, it eventually gets filled up and can even start to get smelly. So – you just have it replaced. Now some are really easy to access and others are tougher to get to. Your helpful West Coast Muffler & Auto Repair service professional will be able to take care of it for you.

Your auto maker's owner’s manual likely has a recommendation for when to replace the cabin air filter. If you live and drive in CA where there is a lot of dust, pollen or harmful pollution, the filter will fill up quicker. Of course, if you’re getting a bad odor bring it to the attention of your helpful West Coast Muffler & Auto Repair tech.
