Air Filter

The engine air filter removes dust and other foreign matter from the air and reduces air intake noise.

Function and Design

The engine requires a precise mixture of fuel and air to operate efficiently. As the air enters the intake system it is immediately filtered by the air filter. The air filter catches dirt and other foreign particles in the air, preventing them from travelling further down the intake system and possibly damaging the engine or other components. The air filter is a vital replacement part requiring periodic inspections and or replacement as per the owner’s manual of each specific model.

Brake Pads

The brake pads grip the brake disc (rotor) creating a stopping force.

Function and Design

Brake pads are made of steel backing plates with friction materials bound to the surface that faces the disc brake rotor. When the brake pedal is applied a hydraulic force is applied to the brake pads creating a friction on the rotating brake disc. This friction converts kinetic energy into thermal energy. In this manner the speed of the vehicle is reduced as required by the driver. The friction material wears over time at a rate dependent upon driving environment, driver braking characteristics and kilometers travelled. The brakes require periodic inspection as per the owner’s manual or as recommended by the Dealer based upon vehicle usage.

Fuel Filter

The fuel filter cleans the fuel by trapping particulate matter before the fuel reaches the fuel injectors.

Function and Design

The fuel filter prevents particulate matter from reaching the engine and creating abrasion inside cylinders, particularly in the upper sections. If the fuel filter is not replaced regularly, it may become clogged with contaminants. This will create a restriction in the fuel flow, causing a significant drop in engine performance. Follow your vehicle’s specific maintenance schedule pertaining to fuel filter inspection and replacement.

Oil Filter

The oil filter removes harmful contaminants from the engine oil that may cause damage to the engine components.

Function and Design

As the oil circulates through the engine, it becomes contaminated over time. An oil filter will trap these impurities, in order to ensure smooth engine operation. The oil filter requires replacement at regular intervals. Always consult the owner’s manual for your particular vehicle, for recommended replacement intervals.

Timing Belt

Timing belt controls the camshafts in your engine, opening and closing valves at a precise time for smooth operation.

Function and Design

The timing belt must be properly calibrated in order to move in sequence with the motion of the pistons. Regardless of what type of motor is present in your vehicle, a failure in the timing belt will cause the engine to suddenly stop. Timing belts are present in many engines with overhead camshafts and are essential to keep these camshafts turning at the right time in order to keep the engine operating smoothly and efficiently.
