It is the role of the air filter to trap any foreign matter and provide clean air for smooth performance and engine longevity. However, for such an important part, there are very big differences in the quality of Air Filters.
QUALITY FILTERING ENSURES CLEAN AIR INTAKE, SMOOTH ENGINE PERFORMANCE AND LONGER ENGINE LIFE.
The quality of an air filter can be best measured by its ability to trap even the tiniest impurities. Toyota Genuine Air Filters feature a triple layer filtering element which has a series of different gauge meshes - coarse, medium and fine to trap every size particle. Other types of filters may only have one layer. Also, the Toyota Genuine Filter Element is needle-punched to increase dust catching ability by up to 30%. This needle punching also allows for a smooth, efficient flow of filtered air to the combustion chamber for clean ignition of fuel. Lesser quality air filters often use poorly constructed seals and filter elements which allow dust and impurities into the engine, causing problems such as poor engine idle, extra fuel consumption and unnecessary engine wear.
