Most cars use a pleated paper filter element that is typically flat but sometimes circular. The filter is found inside a plastic housing which is connected to the intake tube.

Did you know that a clogged or old air filter can cause an improper intake of the air-to-fuel mixture needed for your car to run at optimum levels and cause a drop in gas mileage?

However, your car’s air filter is not the only part of your car’s air intake system. Most cars today have a breather element and a Positive Crankcase Ventilation System or PCV valve.

The Breather element is similar to the air filter in that it filters outside air into the PCV valve system. A clogged Breather or PCV valve can cause poor engine performance and possible damage over time.

The PCV Valve is basically just an emission control device that routes unburned gas back to the intake manifold so that it can be re-burned and cut down on pollution.
