There are three types of engine air filters that most vehicles use. These are:

 

What is the difference between an air filter and a cabin air filter?

Your vehicle's air filter, also known as the engine air filter, prevents airborne particles such as dirt and debris from entering your vehicle's engine, which protects it as well as the vehicle's combustion system. Because of this, the air filter can improve the fuel efficiency of your car; it is important to get the air filter regularly cleaned or replaced to ensure this efficiency. 

 

The cabin air filter is designed to keep you and your passengers safe from breathing in any harmful contaminants while in your vehicle. This includes dust, dirt, pollen, mold spores, and pollutants. Typically located behind the glovebox, the cabin air filter is part of your vehicle's air conditioner and works to filter out the air as it moves through the HVAC system. Replacing the cabin air filter in your vehicle is part of your vehicle’s recommended regular maintenance schedule, because regular maintenance will preserve the air quality inside your vehicle. It is recommended that you get the cabin air filter replaced every 15,000 to 30,000 miles. By maintaining the cabin air filter, you ensure that the air intake is excellent and prevent any debris from getting into the blower motor.
