Change of Filters

March 9th, 2016 at 02:02 pm

First of all, super happy to have completed two days this week without spending. This isn't too unusual as most of our spending is usually done on the weekends.

I will probably stop by the store today to pick up an item or two for my daughter's science teacher who needs donations for science labs tomorrow and Friday.

We changed a lot of filters around here last weekend. All of our furnace filters are swapped out every other month. It was time to change the water filter on the fridge. And we replaced engine and cabin filters on both of our vehicles. Those were really overdue. My husband and I sort of had a race...I did my vehicle and he did his. It was close on the engine filter, but then I got hung up on a clip that I needed to loosen to get to the cabin filter. He had to help me there.

The really nice thing was the filters were all free because of rewards we have earned. I'm going to make a point to put a reminder on our calendar to get the vehicle filters replaced once a had been far longer than that unfortunately.

    Filters! All together now! March!

    That's kind of funny that you changed them all at once.

    How hard was the engine and cabin filters?

    We have Honda cars, so we had looked at videos on how to change them. The cabin filters are located behind the glove box, so you have to unhinge that first. The engine filter was a matter of unscrewing four screws, sliding old one out and the new one in and putting the screws back on.

    By the way buying the filters online on Amazon, will help confirm that the filter that you are trying to buy is right for your vehicle. Of course, auto stores can help you find those too.

    Do they change those usually when you get your oil changed, or is it something extra? (cabin filters)

  6. creditcardfree Says:

    @FT, yes, cabin filters would be an extra charge, plus their labor. Oil filters are changed when you get your oil changed though. Smile

    Ok, I don't know if I;ve ever had them changed.
