Do I Need An Air Filter Replacement?

You might not know it, but one of the most vital parts of a car’s inner system is its air filter. No matter which model you have, getting it inspected and replaced is an important part of your vehicle’s upkeep, so pay Fuccillo Kia of Port Charlotte’s service bay a visit today!

How Does My Air Filter Work?

If you’re not familiar with the inner mechanics of a car, then you might not know what the air filter’s purpose is. Allow us to elucidate. In order to run, a vehicle’s engine mixes oxygen and gas and lights it on fire to create small combustions. These combustions create the power that drives your car forward! The air filter’s purpose is to purify the air that flows through the engine so it is primed for ignition. However, over time it will begin to collect dirt and debris and stop working as well as it used to. As a result, if the air your engine is taking in is not clean, then it could cause problems with the entire system’s functionality.

Warning Signs and Timeline

When this point inevitably comes, you might see a “check engine” light pop up on your dashboard. You could even notice your engine taking longer than usual to start up. If you notice either of these, we suggest paying us a visit. Apart from these clear signs, we also recommend bringing your car in for an air filter replacement every 15,000 to 30,000 miles. This range is very wide because it can be affected by a number of factors, such as the terrain you typically drive on, the climate you drive in, and your unique system. For information on your specific vehicle, read up on your owner’s manual! Or, if you think your symptoms are pointing towards a problem, feel free to schedule an appointment online to come in and get everything checked out.

Replacement

If the technicians at our service bay perform an inspection and determine that you need a replacement, it is a simple process. Our in-house Parts Department will dive into their stocked inventory and find the ideal brand-new filter to install. While our team works, we invite you to relax in our upscale waiting room. In your free time, we recommend perusing our Service Specials and Part Specials. The deals in both of these categories are frequently updated, and can save you a good chunk of money on your maintenance projects!

So, if you were wondering, “Do I need an air filter replacement?”, now you have your answer! Our service team at Fuccillo Kia of Port Charlotte is happy to help you with this, and any other maintenance you might need.

I had a great experience with salesman Gil. Though I didn't make a purchase at that time he was very knowledgeable and kind.

Beyond grateful to my salesman, Doss. I’ve never received better service, not have I met someone as smart as him in terms of the car business. He explained to me all the numbers before any decision was made which is just what I want.

Fun facility. Bought a car in less than 3 hours. Buying with Gage is like being with a good friend. You feel comfortable and confident with your experience. Met with others for insurance, etc. All positive. Highly recommend. Love my Kia.

It was time to trade in my lease, I was ushered by Doss who also helped me on my previous lease. That really gave me more confidence in my decision since the trust was already there. The fact that they give you the same salesperson as always was very impressive because they go out of they’re way to make you feel comfortable, not just buy buy buy

Their Parts Department was great, but their service department and sales are quite lacking. A lot of hype for a basic car lot in my opinion.

Having absolutely no credit, I didnt expect to get approved at all, let alone have a salesman or finance manager put in the effort they did to get me the best deal possible! I'll look forward to doing business again with them in the future!

Salesman Ted Castelo made the buying of my first car a great experience. He was helpful throughout the whole process and put me into a car that was perfect for me. I went to a number of other dealerships before Fuccillo Kia of Port Charlotte but Kia really stood out to me.

I went to Kia just to see what options they may have for me. Pleasantly surprised at Gage’s sales approach. He was very patient in answering all of my questions and not once did I feel as though he was pressuring me into a sale. Gage did a great job and he is the only reason I left with a new Kia that day. Thank you for the refreshing car buying experience! If you need a Kia, ask if Gage is available to help. You will not be disappointed.

Always a great experience dealing with Billy's dealerships, (1 in the Cape, 2 from PC). Knowledge salespeople like Jordan Ray help make car buying quick and painless, while the Service Dept helps keep them in tip top shape.

Light, bright and designed for comfort while waiting. Snacks, coffee, hot chocolate and tea provided, big screen TVs & wifi with charging stations, local paper and a few magazines all to help pass the time. Or they will drive you to local shops or restaurant. The service center is great. I did buy a car here - the sales team is good but the financing department and process is grueling and time consuming; somewhat high pressure. I would consider buying or leasing a KIA again, and use this service center but would NOT Buy at this location again.

Felt respected, not abused.

The Kia dealership in Port Charlotte was only one dealership that had our interest. We spent days on the internet researching what was available locally, and I am so glad we went to Facillo first. Naieem and all the others were very understanding and worked diligently to get us the right car to fit our needs and budget. I truly appreciate the efforts they put in to accommodating us, and how Naieem now feels like family. I love my new used car, and will be returning when the time comes. The only suggestion is to Billy and the upper management, upgrade to the electronic paperless desk. This will not only save the environment, but cut the time it takes to wrap-up the deal.

We just bought a brand new 2020 Kia rio from here... The staff was friendly and awesome .. I'd definitely come back , pretty upset we didn't get any of the awesome deals that Kia frequently advertiesed like the gift card , we thought that buying just before Christmas we would get some incentive but at least we got a half decent deal on a car. So thanks and don't count on getting any incentives.
