The air cleaners used on Toyota vehicles are of the dry element, disposable type. They should never be washed or oiled.

Clean the element every 3,000 miles, or more often under dry, dusty conditions, by using low pressure compressed air. Blow from the inside toward the outside.


WARNING
Never use high air pressure to clean the element, as this will probably damage it.

Replace the element every 18,000 miles, (1970-72); every 24,000 miles (1973-74); 25,000 miles (1975-77); 30,000 miles (1978-82); or more often under dry, dusty conditions. Be sure to use the correct one; all Toyota elements are of the same type but they come in a variety of sizes.

To remove the air cleaner element, unfasten the wing nut(s) and clips (if so equipped) on top of the housing and lift off the top section. Set it aside carefully since the emission system hoses are attached to it on some models. Unfasten these hoses first (if so equipped), to remove it entirely from the car. Lift the air cleaner element out for service or replacement.

Installation is the reverse of removal.
