How much does it cost to change an air filter for a 2004 camry?

i went to the auto shop today to get an oil change. while changing the oil, the repairman said i had a nail in my tire so he fixed it. does removing the nail in the car cost $15 because that is what he charged me.

also, he said i needed to change my air filter and it was going to cost me $45. i didnt have enough money to change my air filter and i said i will come back. but i had a strange feeling that he was trying to rip me off. $45 to change a filter? how much does it cost?How much does it cost to change an air filter for a 2004 camry?A basic air filter at Autozone shouldn't run you more than $10. Installing it takes about 5 minutes. If you really have no mechanical skill or knowledge, just pay the money to have it done right and don't risk messing something up by doing it yourself.

If he had to remove the nail and plug the hole you're probably going to need a new tire soon, those quick fix tire repair deals usually don't last long.How much does it cost to change an air filter for a 2004 camry?You can probably go to the auto parts dealer to buy the air filter and if you ask nicely, they might even come out to the car to put it in and show you how. It's easy and NOT worth $45.

To remove a nail and plug a tire should only be about $10 at most and don't worry about it lasting. A good patch or plug will last the life of the tire and is NOT considered a %26quot;quick fix%26quot; but a standard fix for a flat tire.

What is considered a %26quot;quick fix%26quot; is those Fix-a-Flat crap that comes in a can and you spray it in.How much does it cost to change an air filter for a 2004 camry?1 The nail removal Should include a plug altho many newer tire designs are self sealing.

#2 The air cleaner is charged by an hourly rate with a 1 hour minimum. It's an easy fix, you can do yourself with a screwdriver.

There is a big box on top of the engine with a plastic tube, follow the tube to another box near the front grill or head lite.

Remove the box top and pull out the old filter and put in another (%26lt;$15@ auto store) Put the top on.

Drive away happy, richer and with a sense of accomplishment.
