Does the Chevy S10 Truck 2.2 Have an Inside Cab Air Filter?

by William Pullman

Chevy S10 pickup trucks were manufactured with a variety of engines, including a 2.2-liter engine. Owners performing maintenance on their vehicles may want to replace the cabin air filter, but are unsure if their S10 has one.

Function

Cabin air filters are placed in cars to remove dust, pollen and other debris from the air so that the air that enters your vehicle through the ventilation system is clean.

History

European luxury vehicles were the first cars designed with cabin air filters in the 1980s. Through the years, more car manufacturers started designing their vehicles with cabin air filters, with the first U.S. manufacturers adding the filters in the 1990s.

Chevy S10 2.2

Chevrolet introduced the 2.2-liter engine option for their S10 pickups in 1994, at approximately the same time U.S. car manufacturers began including cabin air filters in some car models. The 2.2-liter engine was kept as an option until the S10 was discontinued in 2004. Though available during the time period when cabin air filters were included in vehicles, S10s with 2.2-liter engines never included cabin air filters.
