Video Description

The engine air filter in your 2009 Honda CR-V cleans the air that enters your engine. You should change the filter on your CR-V at least once a year or every 20,000 miles, whichever comes first. If you drive in dusty or sandy conditions, you should change your filter more frequently. A dirty air filter will cause your CR-V 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 CR-V and how to change it!
