Why are vehicle filters important?
The filters present in your vehicle are very important to keep road dust and other small debris out of the vehicle cabin, engine, fuel and oil system. The life of these filters is largely dependant on how much you drive, but more importantly where you drive. If you are in dusty or off road conditions mostly, then your filters ought to be changed more frequesntly as an example. Since each vehicle will be different, it's important to have your filters inspected by a professional to determine the condition of your filters. The great news is the filters themselves are quite inexpensive, and their installation can be done right in the Mopar Express Lane. Below are more common questions answered about filters.
Choosing an air filter?
There are many brands of filters out there. I know it can be confusing, but I would use the air filter that was designed and engineered for your vehicle. If you’re driving a Chrysler, Dodge, FIAT, Jeep® or Ram, Mopar® air filters are the best option. They’re designed to achieve high, virtually unrestricted airflow while maintaining filtration levels critical to ensuring long engine life.
However, if you’re driving another make we have you covered with either our Mopar® branded air filters or our Magneti Marelli offered by Mopar® air filters offer excellent value and performance. Both are available in our parts department. Also, no matter what make or model vehicle you drive, we can check and replace your air filter right here in our Mopar® Service Lane.
Cabin air filters?
Cabin air filters keep airborne contaminants and irritants out of the vehicle's cabin. Mopar® Cabin Air Filters trap a wide variety of contaminants, including dust, mold, pollen, smoke, allergens and even odors. Furthermore, they offer advanced charcoal filtration technology for allergy sensitive vehicle owners bothered by airborne pollen and dust.
If you need your cabin air filter checked or replaced, we can do it right here in our Mopar® Service Lane. We’re sure to have the right cabin air filter in our parts department at your Chrysler, Dodge, FIAT, Jeep® or Ram dealer. Stop by, and we’ll take care of it for you.
The quality of gasoline products today far exceeds that of years ago, but a good fuel filter is still necessary to trap any contaminants before they reach the engine. Mopar® fuel filters maximize dirt retention to ensure trouble free motoring.
We know diesels and Mopar® offers 5.9L and 6.7L diesel fuel filters that capture water and prevent it from contaminating the injector pump and fuel injectors. Bring your vehicle into a Chrysler, Dodge, FIAT, Jeep® or Ram dealer, and we can install one for you if you need it.
When to replace & check filters?
When should I check my air filter?

It’s a good idea to change it on a regular basis because that can improve your mileage by up to 10 percent and increase the life of your engine. When you bring your vehicle to our Mopar® Service Lane for an oil change we’ll check your air filter as one of the many courtesy checkups we do. If it needs to be replaced, we can do it right here!

Fuel filter replacement and application vary by brand and model so we recommend consulting your owner’s manual for full details or see your service advisor for the proper replacement interval for your vehicle. If your fuel filter does need to be replaced, our parts department probably has it in stock and we can replace it right here!
When should I change my cabin air filter?
For optimal performance, your cabin air filter should be replaced every 12 months or 18,000 km. By the way, we check and replace cabin air filters in our Mopar® Service Lane.

So bring your vehicle into a Chrysler, Dodge, FIAT, Jeep® or Ram dealer so we can take care of that for you.
