Easy DIY tutorial on changing your air filter

I was getting my oil changed recently when the garage told me my air filter was in sorry shape.

I’m always trying to learn more about simple auto maintenance, so I told them I’d buy the part myself and figure out how to change it.

Turns out it was so easy that I’d recommend this job for anyone who knows how to pop their hood open and has $12 in their pocket to spring for the filter!

Replacing your air filter once every 12 months or 12,000 miles can improve acceleration by 11%, according to the packaging of the filter I got.
