Having your oil and oil filter changed, at least as often as recommended by the manufacturer, is likely to generate the single biggest return on your routine-maintenance investment. Replacing the dirty oil and filter will help protect the internal parts of the engine from premature wear. It’s important to use the recommended grade of oil for your vehicle for the best protection and fuel mileage. See your vehicle owner’s manual for the recommended oil change intervals.
Cabin air filters help eliminate common airborne pollutants from the interior of your vehicle, while the engine air filter helps block particles that are harmful to the combustion chamber. The air filter should be inspected at every oil change and replaced every 12 months or 12,000 miles.
If your vehicle is equipped with a cabin air filter, change that too. A dirty cabin air filter reduces the airflow through the vehicle’s ventilation system. Cabin air filters help keep pollen, fumes, smoke and other materials from reaching the inside of a vehicle. See the owner’s manual to determine if your vehicle is equipped with a cabin air filter.

The fuel filter in your vehicle helps deliver clean gasoline to your vehicle’s engine while also protecting the fuel injectors. Over time, though, a fuel filter can become clogged, letting less and less fuel through to the engine until it eventually stops working altogether. The rule of thumb when replacing a fuel filter on an older model car is at least every 2 years or 30,000 miles. On newer models, this interval can run longer. The best way to tell if your fuel filter needs replacing is to have a fuel pressure test.
Over time, bits of metal that have flaked off from metal-to-metal contact and other grit and grime can dirty a transmission filter. Although every vehicle has its own optimal maintenance needs that can usually be located in the owner’s manual, the general consensus among mechanics is that the transmission filter and fluid should be replaced every 25,000 miles.
