PTC Air Filter - Factory Box Replacement Filter - 351PA5560 Review


Ellen: Hey, everyone. I'm Ellen here at etrailer.com and today we're taking a 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 any harmful particles from getting into our engine, clogging things up, and limiting the air flow getting in there. So, air is always important to have going through our engine because that's pretty much what's going to help everything combust properly, make sure that we get the right amount of airflow so that we get the right amount of acceleration and gas mileage from our vehicle overall. It also just helps to improve the longevity of our engine as well.

So, changing it out relatively frequently is going to be a good idea to keep everything flowing and moving as it should. This is going to be a custom fit for several different vehicles, usually from the early aughts to about 2010, that's going to be for Chrysler and Dodge vehicles, but you do want to check with our owner's manual, put in your particular year, make, and model and then go from there, because again, it does fit a couple of different models, but not everything out there, so want to double check that with our fit guide.As far as the construction, it does have a silicone seal going around the perimeter here. That's going to help to take out any gaps and prevent any air from sneaking in through the sides and bypassing that filter, so we'll be able to make sure that everything's getting filtered out through those pleats and getting trapped inside there. You'll also notice this diamond pattern material. That's going to help to give our filter some structure so that doesn't slide around in our air intake box.

Help to give it a little bit of form and shape there.As far as how often you should change these out, it kind of depends on how often you drive, but really between every 12,000 to 15,000 miles, that's going to be the metric to go by, at least according to the manufacturer here, but good idea to check your owner's manual, make sure that they don't say anything different. If they do, go off of their suggestion, but otherwise, every 12,000 to 15,000 miles should be about right for you. That's pretty much all there is to it for our PTC Custom Fit Engine Air Filter, but if you do need a cabin air filter or an oil filter, we also have those available for a lot of vehicles, so definitely check those out if you're in the market for them. Thanks for watching, and we'll see you next time.
