The Difference Between Cabin Air Filters and Engine Air Filters

When we say air filter, you probably think about your car's system working to make the air on your vehicle cleaner for you to breathe! 

But there is a big difference between the cabin air filter and engine air filter that you should know, and we will explain below: 


  • Cabin Air Filter: This is also known as an air conditioning (A/C) filter. It allows the air that comes into your cabin to filter out any pollution from the outside air that would otherwise contaminate the car's cabin. This will enable you to have your car interior air clean and say bye to allergies. 

  • Engine Air Filter: As the name says it, the engine air filter is located on your car's engine to keep it free of any debris that might enter your vehicle system. Having it in good conditions with frequent maintenance can allow your vehicle to work efficiently so that you can save at the pump! 

While the Cabin air filter and Engine air filter are similar in that they both purify the air, they need different maintenance and repair. 

If you have any issues with your car's cabin or engine air filter, remember that our expert team is here to assist you! Schedule an appointment with the technicians at Ponder Auto Repair in Johnson City, TN, for a high-quality auto repair, and we will make sure your cabin and the engine air filter are working correctly.
