Even for the automotive novice, changing the air filter is a relatively simple task. While many oil change and service centers will offer to do it for you, you have the option to do it yourself.
Fram offers a variety of high-quality air filter choices uniquely suited for every make and model of vehicle, and convenient online step-by-step instructions for each. All you need is 10-15 minutes, a dry rag and a screwdriver. For a step by step guide, visit www.fram.com and check out their How To Videos under the Car Care tab on the front page.
A word of advice, consider your vehicle needs to get the right filter to do the job. Truck and SUV drivers should turn to the Fram Tough Guard filter, which is designed specifically to perform in the most demanding driving conditions. Those looking to add a bit of a boost to their ride should try the latest addition to the Fram family - the AirHog High Performance filter. The AirHog filter maximizes the amount of air available to your engine, boosting horsepower and acceleration. For the everyday driver, Fram suggests the Extra-Life filter to protect your engine and keep it running at its best. Fram recommends changing the air filter every 20,000 kms, but check the owner's manual for specific vehicle manufacturer guidance.
