What’s The Difference Between Cabin Air Filters and Engine Air Filters?

What’s The Difference Between Cabin Air Filters and Engine Air Filters?

Most modern vehicles have two different air filters -- your cabin air filter and your engine air filter. It is easy to get these two air filters confused. They sound the same. However, don’t let their name fool you. Your cabin air filter and engine air filter may be composed of the same materials, but their functions are entirely different.  Your engine air filter, as the name suggests, is located in your engine! Your engine also has an intake system that pulls in air. The air entering your vehicle needs to be clean and free of any debris, dirt, or other contaminants. Your engine air filter is responsible for filtering the air before it reaches your engine. When your engine air filter is not well-maintained, all that excess dirt, debris, or grime can enter your engine and cause damage to other components. Our team can examine your engine air filter, and if necessary, perform a replacement.  Looks can be deceiving -- your cabin air filter and engine air filter perform ... read more

Why Winterization in Southern CA is Still a Must

Why Winterization in Southern CA is Still a Must

We are lucky to live in such a beautiful area, as Southern CA doesn’t have severe seasons. Even though we aren’t dealing with tons of snow, we deal with bouts of rain and drops in temperature. The slight change in temperature and weather does affect our vehicle, and the team at Placentia Super Service wants you to have a safe and happy winter season.  We can’t believe how quickly the holidays are approaching. Before we know it, Christmas will be here, and we will be celebrating New Year’s. We recommend bringing your vehicle to our shop before the holidays are here, so our team can winterize your car. Our team will give these components of your car, among others, a little extra TLC during the winter:  During summer, oil from unburned fuel in your exhaust gases collect on roadway surfaces throughout Southern California.
