Under normal driving conditions, how often you guys change your Air Filters ?

Still haven't at 20K and 1 1/2 years of driving my 2010 tundra. I guess it is time for a change or not??????

air filters should be good for 30K if not longer but cabin air filter probably less than that for sure.

It's cheap insurance - stick with the paper version from the dealership for around $30 or so - every oil change or once a year if you're not driving in really dusty conditions is a decent rule of thumb.

air filter replacement varies upon conditions, could be every 3-5k, or could be every 50k...

last vehicle was an fj, i replaced my af at around 10k ish i think, i could dig up n see, but still... with a k&n, i still have it.... i can show you what it looked like when i installed the afe cai... the afe cai i cleaned once, so 1 stock, 1k&n, and 1 afe filter... the stock one was clean when i stuck the drop in in, the KnN wasn't cleaned, i just installed the cai, that i cleaned once... and thats it, all over 40k miles.

best is look at it, if its dirty replace it, but dont just replace it if it doesn't need it, thats like topping the tank off and overflowing it cuz u think it needs gas... just dumb...

not everyone dirties an a/f as often as others.

Yes, you can get it at the parts dept. A little expensive. That's why I like my AFE Stage II lifetime filter. Take it out and wash with mild detergent along with my cabin air filter DIY. Every 6 months just to keep it clean and running efficient.

Mickey, is the AFE Stage II lifetime filter you are using a filter that will fit in to the stock air box or is this a filter for their intake system? Also is the cabin air filter the same type and brand? Thanks for any info.

Replaced my air filter, cabin filter, & wipers @ 30K. Purchased them all from Victor @ Findley Toyota for dirt cheap.

AFE is strictly for their design. Not sure if it will compare with TRD. Here's pic of Cabin Filter and AFE. Cabin Filter is made from a Home Depot A/C filter that can be made to adjust to any size. It keeps the bugs and debris out.

If you want a long life filter go with the K&N filter. You will havw to clean and reoil it occasionally.
