While I was at Wal-mart I went to the automotive section and picked up an air filter for my car. I told the guy what make, model, year and all that stuff. He gave me an air filter. I had a friend that was going to install it for me. When he took the filter out of the box it was nothing like the one that was in my civc. I just kept the old filter. Have they stopped making filters for 96 civics?
Theres always going to be a replacement air filter for your car no matter what the make/model/year.
go to your local dealership, a lot easier to get the right ones, plus theyre about as costly as walmarts...and generally alot better.
Wal-mart has little computers that you can type the make/model/year of your car and it tells you what model would go for your car :thumbs:
That's exactly what we did Oomba and it didnt fit.
one word - dealership :)
I would have to agree.
Try autozone or advance auto parts. It's wher ei always have gotten my replacement filters from.
that's because the stock air filters that come with your model civic are
paper back filters, i'm guessing that you grabbed a pod filter for
take a picture of both and post them up if you could please?, that'd be a big help to me :)
Like maybe they sold him the generic neon green riceboy cone replacement that he has to duct tape to his MAF sensor lol.
you callin' me a ricer..? what's your proof of this..? and why call me a ricer?
No dood I am sorry. I wouldn't even think it. I just thought it would be funny if the guy who wanted a replacement filter and started this thread went to Wal-Mart for his replacement drop-in style paper filter, and instead some douchebag sold him like just a cheapass japcrap shitty generic cone filter by itself and he ended up like, cutting his airbox off and just duct taping the piece of shit to his MAF sensor. I thought it was funny. I definitely don't think you are a ricer. What would a ricer be doing with an old Korean with no aftermarket (that I know of). ALTEZZAZZZZZZZ YEA j/k.
you like korean cars you kinda make fun of yourself
well if that isn't ignorant, I don't know what is.
Um, FYI,the guy who started this thread, is really a GIRL... :orglaugh: Just thought you might want to know.
Thanx, but I had no way of knowing except for the lack of car knowledge. j/k plz don't flame me. I joke because my gf doesn't get the whole car thing. I'm hooked and she wonders why.
:) atleast i own what i like, no need for you to go and make fun of yourself putting a vehicle that isn't even yours, nor never will be yours in your sig.
hahahahha you dont know me . how do you know what a drive and my car would whip shitty korean ass
How do you know what a drive?
:pop: this thread cooks my popcorn
for all you know CHILD, i could have the worlds fastest Hyundai Excel that
pushes well over 1000hp sitting in my backyard awaiting a re-spray, mags
and tyres.... it could be one hell of a sick motherfukin' sleeper.
and also, for all you know, CHILD.. once again.. i don't know or care 'what a drive', but i do know that you don't drive because i've read past threads were you've admitted to being only 13 and just LIKING Ferrari's.... mummy and daddy's car's don't count as your own MATE.
EDIT: Spelt some words wrong.
wow you should be a teacher
first of all i never said i was 13 im 20, i said my mom and dad paid for half of it, and this isnt a spelling bee you should probably read a little more shit if you wanna act like you know something, and im pretty sure your excel aint shit :laughing:
Your mom and dad bought you a Ferrari or am I missing something?
" i said my mom and dad paid for half of it"
:laughing: i'm sorry but when i hear that peoples parents bought their car for them i just have to laugh a little :mrgreen:
anyways you didn't post what engine your civic had. the vtec and non vtec
motors use different filters that could be why you got the wrong one.
here's some part numbers for both. sorry couldn't find the honda number
nah steve, his parents didn't buy him shit, he's not even old enough to
take a picture of your birth certificate and post it up on here and that way you'll prove your age.
Finally someone got back on topic but I think it might be a little too late... lol :laughing:
oh well it can be a refrence for others
