Video Description

The engine air filter in your 2008 Mazda CX-7 cleans the air that enters your engine. You should change the filter on your CX-7 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 CX-7 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 CX-7 and how to change it!
