Fuel Saving Tip: Dirty Oil In Your Hanover Park pickup

Breathe Deep With Your Cabin Air Filter

Bad air quality while you're driving around Palatine is nothing to sneeze at. But seriously, more and more vehicles these days come equipped with a cabin air filter. Since they're fairly new on the scene, a lot of folks don't know about them yet. These filters clean the air in the passenger compartment, or cabin, of your car or truck. They do the same job as the furnace filter you have at home. They can filter out particles as small as thee microns. By contrast, a grain of sand is about 200 microns.
