Your vehicle's original air cleaner assembly that came from the factory helps prevent abrasive particles in the air from entering the engine and its combustion cylinders. Those particles can cause damage to the engine components. They can also contaminate the air/fuel mixture that generates the combustion. By filtering these elements out, the air cleaner ensures that your engine is feeding on clean air. The air cleaner assembly consists of an air filter and an air filter housing. It is usually found above or next to the carburetor or throttle body. The housing is typically made from plastic or metal and has a removable lid to allow easy access to the filter. The air cleaner assembly itself can be made of paper, foam, cotton or oil bath. Paper is most common and offered excellent filtering efficiency. The other types are more limited in their applications.
Your air cleaner assembly needs to be replaced once it gets dirty. If you wait too long, the engine cylinders won't get enough air flowing to them. That leads to poor performance and worse fuel efficiency. Your ignition system can even experience problems due to a low air-to-fuel ratio. You can expect to get between 12,000 and 15,000 miles before you need to have your air cleaner assembly changed, though dusty road conditions can shorten that number. When yours needs replacing, choose the same original Mopar® air cleaner assembly parts that originally came with your model. They're the ones that are guaranteed to fit and perform right, so you can trust in their quality. We have plenty in stock for online ordering at our auto parts department.
