Replacing our filter right away improved our cooling system performance

I have been dealing with car problems over the past few weeks. It started with a cracked radiator that kept leaking antifreeze until the temperature gauge on the car would climb. The engine started to smoke as well as I had to pull off onto the side of the interstate. I was fortunate that I got the engine off before anything was permanently disfigured. Even after getting a current radiator, our car problems were far from over. I had to get a current catalytic converter installed after the outdated one started to fail as well as choke out the car’s exhaust. It had the effect of putting resistance on the engine as you’d try to accelerate, which at the time had me thinking I had a faulty transmission. A catalytic converter is a fraction of the cost of a transmission, so I was cheerful that solved our consistent engine issues. My cooling system was giving me similar trouble recently. The strength of the air current leaving the ceiling vents was getting worse. Aside from the cooling system struggling to keep up, the air wasn’t feeling cool as well as dry. I started to worry as well as know of every worst case scenario that our mind could come up with. Thankfully, it was something as stupid as well as trivial as having a blocked filter in the cooling system. There was so much dust in the outdated filter that it was suffocating the entire Heating, Ventilation & A/C system. My cooling system performance went from zero to 100 in hours after I put in a current filter as well as turned the system back on. I’m thankful that a $15 air filter fixed our problems so I’m not looking at a $150 maintenance bill on something serious.
