PTC Air Filter - Factory Box Replacement Filter - 351PA6280 Review

Today we'll be taking a look at the PTC custom fit engine air filter. Your engine air filter is going to keep any harmful particulate matter from getting into your engine and causing issues with getting it gunked up and overall stopping the flow into your engine.It helps to increase that airflow and that's overall going to improve the acceleration and mileage that you get from your vehicle since that combustion engine needs a good steady stream of air to make everything work. So by changing this out regularly, we'll make sure that that air gets in there as it should.It has these paper-like pleats to trap all that harmful particulate matter. And then around the outside edge there's a little silicone gasket to seal that up. Make sure that it has a nice air tight seal between the filter and the air intake box. Typically it's pretty easy to get these installed.You'll just need to find your air intake box, remove any components related to that or in the way of that, and then place in your new filter.

This is going to be a fit for the 2012 through '17 Mazda 3, the 2013 through 2016 Mazda CX5, and the 2014 through 2017 Mazda 3 with the 2.5 liter engine, the 2014 through 2017 Mazda 6 and the 2014 through '17 Mazda CX5 with the 2.5 liter engine and also the 2015 through '16 Mazda 3 with the 2.3 liter engine, I-6 engine.So to be able to find out if this is going to be a fit for you, it's easiest to just go through our fit guide here at Put in your year, make and model and double check that there.The manufacturer recommends changing this out every 12 to 15,000 miles. Of course, you do want to check your owner's manual, make sure that they don't have any different specification. They do go off of their recommendations. This is an easy piece of maintenance you really can do at at home, in your garage, in the driveway, and keep your engine working properly.That's going to do it for our look at the PTC custom fit engine air filter..
