Video Description

The engine air filter in your 2005 Hyundai Elantra cleans the air that enters your engine. You should change the filter on your Elantra at least once a year or every 20,000 miles, whichever comes first.

A dirty air filter will cause your Elantra to lose 1 - 3 mpg, depending on your driving, you can save 70 - 100 gallons of gas per year simply by changing your filter regularly. The video above, shows you where the engine air filter is located in your Elantra and how to change it!
