How often do you change your air filter?

Whether you've got a Tico or a Lexus, a Dailim or a Harley, this is the forum to discuss transport in Cambodia. Where to buy it, how much to pay and what to do when the wheels fall off.

How often do you change your air filter?

Postby slavedog » Tue Jan 09, 2018 1:09 pm

Just took my car in for a few minor bits of work. The garage took it upon themselves to change the air filter while they were at it. I checked my receipts and it turned out the air filter was replaced (by the same garage) only 2 months / 1,000 miles ago.

Is this normal?

No, maybe every 30 - 40k. You got ripped off so go and firebomb their garage- cunts.

I thought this thread was going to be able A/C air filters, which I've been told need to be changed every three months, but I certainly don't do it that frequently...

I change my "moto" air filter twice a year, after the "dry" and after the "wet" season, and change spark plug after 12k.

Certainly too often unless you were driving on laterite roads all the time.

The garages in Cambodia love that one, trying to replace air filter every time. Just needs a cleaning.

Not changed, removed and cleaned, wash with very hot water and apply bleach (kills dust mites)

Re-gassed, yes.

That sounds like a lot of effort.
