The engine air filter in your 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe cleans the air that enters your engine. You should change the filter on your Santa Fe at least once a year or every 20,000 miles, whichever comes first.

A dirty air filter will cause your Santa Fe 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 Santa Fe and how to change it!
