Since your engine needs a mix of fuel and air to create power, your vehicle came from the factory with an original air intake system. That system reliably delivers air to the combustion chamber, where it helps keep the cylinders cool. The intake system, also known as an induction system, has three ways to control how much air is used. The throttle body hosts a mass airflow sensor, which is one method. Second, an air metering system provides feedback on how much air is used to the engine control unit (ECU). Then, oxygen sensors calculate ideal exhaust air levels, which helps the engine adjust fuel use as needed. The engine air filter keeps airborne contaminants at bay. The result? Your engine runs clean and efficiently.
If you start noticing that your engine is idling high or showing signs of inconsistent performance, you may be experiencing an air intake system failure. Have an expert take a look to confirm that's the case. If so, replace the faulty item with a genuine Mopar® air intake system part. They're the only ones that are guaranteed to be compatible with your model, ensuring that you'll enjoy ideal fit and performance right out of the box.
