1. YourMechanic rescheduled my appointment because the parts were not available in time. That should have been determined before scheduling. 2. Wrong parts ordered and given to mechanic. Result: Couldn't fix bad motor mounts without rescheduling for a 3rd time.

All about Air Filter Replacement

Your car takes in air and passes it into the engine through the air filter. (Some cars have more than one air filter.) The air filter takes out dust, leaves, and other debris from the air before passing it into the engine where it’s mixed with fuel. The combination of air and fuel is essential for the car to run. If the air filter is dirty or clogged, it will not pass enough air into the engine, causing all sorts of problems (car may not start, engine may not run smoothly, etc.). If you use a reusable air filter (K&N), please specify that in the appointment notes, as you may just need a cleaning instead of a replacement. Unless you bought K&N filter, your car has a regular filter.
