We’ve got a few trips planned this summer. When you travel with kids you have to be prepared. One way we get prepared is by making sure my car is in tip top running shape. My husband showed me last night how easy it is to change your air filter. So I did a video for you!
I would just like to thank Mr. My UnEntitled Life for helping me with this video. He says if you’re changing your air filter it’s a good idea to change your air conditioner filter too. So we did that at the same time. I was so pleased with my FRAM Air Filter and how easy it was to get it from WalMart. I ordered it and had it shipped to Walmart where I picked it up free there instead of paying for shipping. It was so easy to order my FRAM air filter from the Walmart site where they ask questions to make sure you get the correct filter. It took less than 5 minutes to change my van’s air filter. Here’s where I found it in the Walmart air filter aisle.
Well according to my video it was less than 2 minutes. We just needed a screwdriver or in our case a drill. We backed the screws out, changed the filter and then screwed the top back on. Your air filter is your first line of defense when you’re getting ready for summer travel. It helps you accelerate and improves engine performance. A dirty air filter can restrict airflow, which cause decreased acceleration, horsepower, and reduced overall performance. Change it so you know your cars in good shape and it’s ready to go on these summer trips. FRAM recommends changing your air filter annually or every 12,000 miles. Be sure to always follow recommended change intervals as noted in your vehicle owner’s manual.
Here’s the steps I took to change my air filter.
After I changed my air filter I wanted to add some organizers to my car. This way my road trips and vacations would be better organized this summer. So I made some simple organizing items using things I would have normally thrown away or recycled. Here’s what I needed to organize my car!
Then I needed scissors and duct tape. I added the duct tape to the bottom of the cereal box (after cutting it off). Then I added it to the oreo container and the pringles container.
After they were all duct taped then I cut out the inside of each lid on the oreo and pringle containers. Then I had a pen keeper that I was able to keep in my cup holder.
I also had a new garbage container made out of the pringles can that I slid a grocery bag into and slid it on my seat arm so that I can get rid of any trash I bring into my van. My girl helped me make these. They were a quick and easy way to make and organize my car! The cereal box bottom holds ketchup, salt, straws and fork packets.
Is your car ready for travel? Have you changed your FRAM air filter recently? It may be time. Where are your summer travel plans taking place at?
