Pop open the hood. Look for the big thing right on top that looks like a deep black frying pan with a lid. On this lid there is a wingnut that holds the lid on. Unscrew this and DO NOT LOSE IT!!! Take the lid off and change your air filter. It should look like a dirty ring. Just set the other one in there, it is supposed to kinda move side to side a little. Put the lid and the wingnut on, and you have changed your own air filter. actually on the newer cars the filters arent round those are topmount filters which are used with older carb. injected cars. newer efi's the filter will be on the right hand side towards the front will either have screws are latches. just undo & pull off if you have forced intake you may have to take off the hose running into the top. put your new air filter in make sure the side with the seal is up.
