Your Jeep needs an exact blend of air and gas for high performance both on and off the road. The Jeep Grand Cherokee intake allows air to enter the engine, but when it becomes clogged and dirty, it affects your ride by not letting enough air reach the combustion chamber.
Replacing Your Air Filter
It's recommended that you change the air filter about every year, or 10,000 to 15,000 miles, but some manufacturers have different guidelines. If you live in a dusty area or drive a lot in the country stirring up dirt, check with your mechanic about changing it more frequently. Driving in places with a lot of traffic congestion, where you have to stop and start more often, can require a more frequent air filter change.
How to Tell if Your Jeep Needs a New Air Filter
There are a number of ways to tell if you need to replace your 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee cabin air filter. You experience reduced fuel economy. The engine misfires or jerks roughly due to a restricted air supply. Your jeep might sound as if it is coughing or popping. In modern engines, the check engine light comes on. The air filter looks darker in color. You experience a loss in horsepower or acceleration, again, because the air filter is not receiving the air it needs. If you smell gasoline when you start the care, it is most likely due to the unburnt fuel entering the exhaust pipe, which also signals the need for a new air filter.
