When to Inspect the Engine Air
If your vehicle is equipped with a ﬁlter change indicator
it will let you know when the ﬁlter needs to be
replaced. Inspect the air cleaner/ﬁlter restriction indicator
at every oil change and replace the ﬁlter when the
indicator tells you to. When the change indicator turns
black or is in the red/orange change zone, change
the ﬁlter and reset the indicator. Vehicles without
a change indicator, inspect the air cleaner/ﬁlter at every
oil change and replace at the ﬁrst oil change after
25,000 miles (40,000 km).
