Air is constantly drawn in whilst driving to cool the engine and obtain the correct fuel mixture. The purpose of the air filter is to provide effective protection of the engine against dirt particles and thus premature wear. It also keeps the noise level down. Filter leakage and porosity lead to unmetered air entering the intake duct. And so Bosch air filters feature a particularly hardwearing polyurethane seal which is precisely adapted to the housing shape, offsets any unevenness and remains flexible and supple over the entire filter service life.
What happens if the air filter is clogged?
- Poor preparation of the fuel/air mixture
- Reduced engine power and increased pollutant emissions
- Higher fuel consumption
- Increased wear caused by particles
- Starting problems
