PTC Air Filter - Factory Box Replacement Filter - 351PA4731 Review


Hey everyone, I'm Ellen here at etrailer.com and today taking a quick look at the PTC custom fit engine air filter. So this is going to be our barrier between the outside world and our engine. It's going to keep out any harmful particulate matter from getting into that engine and gunking it up, causing issues with our air flow, and lessening the mileage that we get out of that vehicle. By having this replaced relatively often we'll be able to make sure that we get that proper airflow, so that we're getting the right amount of acceleration out of our engine, and also getting good gas mileage.This is going to be a fit for several different vehicles. Most of those are going to be from about the early to mid nineties through the early aughts, or the early two thousands, and most of those are going to be GM vehicles, but there are several fits. So the easiest way to make sure that this is going to be a fit for your particular vehicle is to use our fit guide here at etrailer.com and put in your year, make, and model, and then go from there.At the perimeter we'll see this gasket, it's going to be a silicone gasket so it does have a little give and squish, so that's going to fit into our air intake box, make sure that takes up the gap.

We won't have any air creeping through the sides and bypassing that filter. It's all going to have to pass through there and get filtered out, and then we'll also have this diamond plate material here that's going to give it some structure, some rigidity, so it's not going to slide around as we're out on the road driving our vehicle. It's going to say in its proper shape, as it is in that air intake box, and again, that silicone gasket is going to give it a good seal against that box as well.As far as how often you should change out your filter. It really depends on how often you drive and the kind of vehicle you have, but typically it's going to be about every 12,000 to 15,000 miles. That's going to be a good metric to go by.

That's what the manufacturer recommends. It's also a good idea to check your owner's manual, if you still have it, and see what they say. Go by whatever they recommend, but if not, they do recommend about every 12,000, 15,000 miles for the manufacturer of the filter itself.But that's where it was going to do it for our look at the PTC custom fit engine air filter. If you'd like to check out, we also have cabin air filters and oil filters as well, if you're in the market for them, check them out. Thanks for watching..
