Old-Fashioned Air Cleaner Service


#1

Most likely, the air cleaner on your modern car is probably a throw-away item. When you bring your car in for an oil change or tune-up, the service technician takes the old filter out, gets a new one, pops it into a plastic housing, fastens some wire clips and away you go. In most cases, the new air-filter costs less than $10 (although there are some high-performance filters on the market today that are re-useable, but cost $60 or more.)
