Do you know what your engine needs? In order to generate power, your engine uses a mixture of fuel and oxygen that burns quickly and smoothly in your combustion chambers. The job of your Chevy Silverado air filter is to ensure your engine gets the oxygen it needs, without the dust and contaminants that fill the air along with it. You will find your Silverado air filter located near the top of your engine, situated in a plastic housing, which means it is far easier to change your air filter than it is to change your oil filter or fuel filter.
Still, many drivers do not change their air filters often enough. You should replace your Chevy Silverado air filter at least once per year, and you may need to do so more often if you put a lot of miles on your vehicle or drive in dusty climates or conditions. In some cases you can see whether your air filter is in bad shape, if there is a lot of black residue on the paper filter material.
However, a visual check is not always enough to determine whether you need to replace your Silverado air filter. The best way to test your air filter is to remove it from the housing and blow through it. If air passes through the filter with minimal resistance, it should be good to go for a while.
