The function of the air filter cover is to prevent dust from directly entering the engine
The role of air filter:
1. The engine needs to suck in a lot of air during the working process. If the air is not filtered, the dust suspended in the air is sucked into the cylinder, which will accelerate the wear of the piston assembly and the cylinder. Larger particles entering between the piston and the cylinder will cause serious "cylinder pull" phenomenon, which is especially serious in a dry and sandy working environment;
2. The air filter is installed in front of the carburetor or intake pipe to filter out dust and sand particles in the air and ensure sufficient and clean air to enter the cylinder;
3. Among the thousands of parts and components of the car, the air filter is an extremely inconspicuous component. Because it is not directly related to the technical performance of the car, but in the actual use of the car, the air filter has a great impact on the service life of the car, especially the engine. On the one hand, if there is no filtering effect of the air filter, the engine will inhale a large amount of air containing dust and particles, causing serious wear of the engine cylinder. On the other hand, if it is not maintained for a long time during use, the filter element of the air cleaner will be filled with dust in the air. This not only reduces the filtering capacity, but also hinders the circulation of air, causing the mixture to be too thick and causing the engine to work abnormally. Therefore, regular maintenance of the air filter is essential.
