Changing Air Filter

Hi,

I wanted to change the engine air filter in my 2001 Nissan Altima GXE. Does anyone know which filter to be used and how to change it?

I do not know much about cars, but my couple of friends suggested that in most cars one can change the air filter easily. So if you can provide steps, then it would be GREAT!

Thanks in advance...

Here's the procedure on earlier models; yours should be pretty close to the same:

You can get the filter at any parts store or even Wal-Mart. They will both have parts listings to determine the correct filter.

Hey Thanks...

I guess in 01 altima the air filter is at the same location. I will check today only.

I had tried to find the same info from autozone, but it seems this info is not available for 01 altimas (99 and up).

And don't worry, a couple of screws should and that's all usually. It's almost as easy as filling the gas tank, but it's far less expensive ;-)

Thanks...I did it this weekend...it is damn easy. And my air filter wasnt much dirty. Last time when I had gone for the oil change, the mechanic told me that it's damn dirty and should replace it immediately for better gas mileage. I checked it on weekend and couple taps removed some dirt and after that wasnt that bad.

Thanks for showing me it. I will definately not spend on labor for it now...

Air filters are a profit center at some places; don't be surprised if next oil change they tell you your new one is "dirty".
