How to Change Your Own Air Filter and What it Even Does
Have you ever wondered what maintenance you can do yourself?
What Does Your Air Filter Do?
For every gallon of gas your car uses, it also uses a whole boatload of air. All of that air gets filtered through the humble air filter. The air filter traps pollen, dirt and contaminants, preventing them from damaging your engine.
Why Bother Replacing It?
When Should You Change It?
Your owner’s manual has a maintenance schedule that clearly indicates how often it should be changed.
Buying the Filter
First off, start by buying the right filter for your car. Visit a parts website, where you will input the year, make and model of your car as well as the engine size, to start your search.
