Need to Clean the Air-Condition Filter in Suzuki Alto 2006


Changing the cabin air filter is fairly easy to do if you follow this how-to guide. New vehicles usually come equipped with one or more cabin air filters. A cabin air filter provides fresh air through the passenger compartment side vents. Step-By-Step Guide
  1. The first thing you need to do is locate your owner's manual to find out if your vehicle is equipped with a cabin air filter. If you can't find the information, then your car is probably not equipped with a cabin air filter. However, if you would like to be sure, call your favorite parts store and they can provide you with the information.
  2. When you purchase the new cabin air filter, be aware that there are 2 types of filters. One is called the particulate; the other is called the activated charcoal. The particulate filters out road dust, bacteria, mold spores, pollen and other pollutants. The activated charcoal filters the above mentioned and filters harmful gasses and odors. People who drive around in gridlock or have an odor problem might consider buying the activated charcoal, though it is more expensive.
  3. After purchasing the filter, make sure you have your eye protection, gloves, ratchet, socket and screwdriver before beginning the procedure.
  4. Remove the glove compartment. Usually, vehicles are equipped with bolts and screws to hold the glove compartment in. Your glove compartment may have tabs as well, so be careful when removing the compartment and use the tabs to remove.
  5. After removing the bolt and the screws, remove the glove box frame.
  6. Locate the filter housing. Look for a removable plastic filter cover.
  7. Remove the filter. Most under-dash filters can be removed simply by opening the filter door.
  8. Before installing the new filter, vacuum the filter chamber to remove any excess particles. You may also take a damp cloth and wipe the inside of the air filter chamber to clean out unwanted dust and particles.

Hello my 2000 toyota echo's check engine light is on and it is reading error codes po440,po441,po446 I was told it is something with the emissions what is the problem


It's probably the 02 sensor (technically dealing with the exhaust) which will make it fail emissions. I have been told it may also be a dirty mass air flow sensor, which is located in the same housing as the air filter box. I am having the same problems myself, and the car is hesitating and has no power.

The charcoal filter is used to filter fumes from the fuel tank. There is a vent line, that comes from your fuel tank to this filter. (Charcoal canister)

Now since the charcoal filter has been completely soaked with gasoline, it will no longer function as it should. Even with vapors from the fuel tank vent line, the canister only has a working 'life' of so far.
You will smell gasoline in strong amounts until it is replaced.

Can't comment whether it is safe or not. (In my thinking, you are driving around with a charcoal canister, that has a charcoal filter soaked with gasoline. I wouldn't use it this way, but that is just my thoughts)

Difference between an Air Filter and Air Conditioning filter


The air conditioning filter that your manual speaks of is known as a ''cabin filter'', it is much differant then your engine air filter. It filters the incoming air into your vehicles interior. So if someone has told you to replace your ''air filter'' they are more then likely speaking of your ''engine'' air fitler. You should check your engine air filter every oil change. If it shows signs of dirt, then replace it. Hope this helps =)

2001 jagaur xj8 blows fuel out when filling


I had the same problem. My mechanic told me I had a clogged charcoal filter. Essentially, when I was filling the tank, it wasn't letting air escape so the fuel kept blowing back out. Including labour, it cost me around $200 to fix.
