Toyota Air Filters related Questions
Read below where Experts have answered a variety of questions relating to the Toyota air filter.
The connector on the hose on the Toyota air filter housing on an Avalon Touring has broken. Is this something that is easy to replace or fix?This is a problem that can easily be fixed. Remove the broken piece from the hose if it is still there. ½ inch of plastic tubing that will fit tightly into the aperture in the housing is required, along with some epoxy glue. Both of these items can be purchased from a hobby shop or hardware store. If the plastic tube is not available, an aluminum or brass tube can be used, but these are more difficult to cut. Put the tube into the opening in the housing. Apply the epoxy on this area and slide the broken piece over the tube. Make sure that it is flush with the housing. Apply more epoxy to seal the joint and after the glue dries, put the hose back on.
The vacuum hose from the side of the air filter on a 2001 Toyota Camry XLE is broken can the hose be glued back on?The vacuum hose feeds filtered air to the crankcase to replace air that has been evacuated by the PCV system. The hose must be replaced to ensure that dirt and debris do not enter the engine. There is very little pressure on this hose so it can be glued back onto the housing. It is important to use a type of glue that will adhere to the surfaces in question.
Is the air filter and a pollen filter the same thing for a 2005 Toyota Corolla?These are 2 different filters. The air filter is to clean the air supplied to the engine and the pollen filter clean the air entering the passenger compartment. Toyota recommends changing the filter every 20,000 miles. No air conditioner service is required at the time of replacement.
Will installing a K&N high performance air filter on a 2009 Toyota Prius improve gas mileage?Air intake restriction is not a factor in newer car engines so replacing the optimally designed Toyota air filter for one that claims to improve performance by reducing restriction is not going to provide any worthwhile improvement in performance or gas mileage. On the other hand, these air filters may allow dirt and debris to enter the engine and cause damage. Some of these aftermarket filters shed excess oil on to the mass air sensor which results in incorrect information being supplied to the engine management system which in turn can adversely affect performance and gas mileage. The fitting an aftermarket air filter is therefore not advisable.
A dirty or defective air filter can affect engine performance, fuel consumption and also result in engine damage. Diagnosing air filter problems is not always easy. The best way to avoid costly mistakes when dealing with Toyota air filter problems is to obtain the assistance and guidance of Experts.
