The proper operation of your Mazda relies on a steady supply of air to be efficient, but if this air were taken straight into the combustion chambers, it would cause serious and expensive damage to the engine. The Mazda air filter is installed in your vehicle specifically to prevent this problem. Using a paper filtering material, it stops the particulates from entering the engine, while still allowing the engine all of the air that it must consume for efficient operation. Over time, the amount of contaminants sticking to the surface of the Mazda air filter will impede the flow of the air into the combustion chambers. Fortunately, our online catalog has many versions of the Mazda air filter available to fit almost any vehicle. Our standard Mazda air filter is made very similar to the version currently in the vehicle, and it will perform as well or better than it did. For most models, we also offer an upgraded version of the Mazda air filter, which replaces the paper filtering material with cotton, which has several added advantages. It allows air to flow more freely through it, and it offers a higher level of filtering ability. In addition, the performance Mazda air filter is reusable. When the unit becomes dirty, simply remove it from the vehicle, wash it with water, allow it to dry, and reinstall it. Unlike the standard paper version, this type of Mazda air filter will often last the life of the vehicle without problems. Our catalog has a full selection of other parts that you may need to repair your Mazda, as well as numerous accessories you may need to protect or customize it.
