when to change a car air filter

Air Filter … When do you need a new one?

February 27, 2010
I’m a (fairly) new home owner these days … and there’s a lot I didn’t know about home ownership and maintenance. Needless to say, I have learned a lot this past year! When the winter season rolled around, my mother said “Hey Noni, you need to change your filter on your furnace!” (By the way, Noni is my nickname!) Hhhmm … I thought to myself. Trying not to look too stupid, I relayed this message to my father. He, of course, told me what to do and it’s so simple! But  I guess that you don’t know, until you ask! So I was thinking about the filter in our cars. I asked some people around the store when they change the air filters in their vehicles. I got a couple blanks stares, along with a few “I don’t knows.”  I even got a few brave souls to share their thoughts with you. Make sure to watch to the end of the video for the real answer from Dave! [youtube][/youtube] Hope that makes things a little more clear for ya’ll. What other service and maintenance questions do you have?
