Changing to New Auto Engine Air Filters
Hi! I am no mechanic, but I've discovered that even an 'all thumbs' guy like me can change an air filter for a car. Car air filters remove debris from the air, before the air enters your engine. A clean air filter is important for fuel efficiency and a smooth running car.
- Moderately Easy
- Phillips head screw driver
- New air filter
- 1 OK, go to any auto parts store and ask the clerk where the automotive air filters are.
- 2 Go to the air filter aisle. Be sure you know your car's make, model and year (ie 1995 Honda Civic DX). If you aren't sure, bring your owner's manual in with you. If you don't have that, ask the clerk if he or she can identify your car.
- 3 There should be a catalogue in the air filter aisle. Look up your car's make, model and year in the catalogue. The air filter part number specific to your car will be shown. Be sure to only use a serial number that matches your car. Anything else either won't fit or won't work. Match the part number to the correct filter on the shelf and buy it.
