    Engine air filter replacement video

    While I was in a video-making mood this morning, I decided to make a quick one showing the replacement of the engine air filter.

    does anyone know where you can get replacement filters? I have only been able to find the K&N type. But I just want a basic Fram-type paper filter.

    Any auto parts that carries Wix, Baldwin or Hastings filters will be able to get you one.

    About how many miles before the filter needs changed? I know Mitsubishi recommends 30k but wondering how dirty the filter typically is at 30k. Highway driving of course, no off road. Thanks.

    I think the best way to know if you have to replace the filter really is to just look at it.

    Also, I've added this thread to the Mirage Modifications, Customizations & DIY list.

    Current project: DIY Nitrous oxide setup for ~$100

    This is why I love Japanese cars in general but especialliy our Mirage. Just clip off the clips, clean and/or replace and your done.
    @Tomrad: look at it, between the layers u will finde dirt & stuff. Cleaning is out with pressured air or simple claps on it, carefully or a vacuum cleaner should to the trick. Never a bad idea to keep it clean since I wouldn't want crap via the air income into my motor.

    Our dealer, in the Netherlands, uses standardized costs and this change would cost like 40 Euro as part of the interval inspection. I go to the dealership, laughing my ass off and saying thank you I'd rather do it myself. Crazy expensive, DIY is the way to go!
