The Dyson has a charcoal filter and a sensor that somehow reads air quality. The larger fan didn’t but nothing an old sash and filter didnt’ fix. We’ll see if that helps. I look forward to finding out!
I did this a few times on my old escort, 2003, it was awful… It was a real pain trying to get to that thing, almost ripped my arm open. I have not even tried looking at the newer car. If it’s easy to get to… sure.
I’m hilariously inept at car maintenance and it took me maybe 20 minutes to change mine out, 19 of which were popping the glove box in and out of place while afraid I was breaking it. Worst case, check Youtube and see if it’s worth the hassle.
So when you said glove box, I had to YouTube this. The last time I changed my air filter I had to pop the hood of the car and pull out this huge boot looking thing. The air filter was like a cylinder and it was hard to get that boot in and out because I had to move all these hoses and of course had to use grubby clothing or a bare arm else it would be covered in black grime when I was done.
Oh, I’m probably not being clear (again, inept) but that’s only for the cabin air filter. The engine air filter is still under the hood which it sounds like you tackled… that one I usually get suckered into every other oil change.
Yeah that’s the one. I’m thinking the other one i just have done with all the regular maintenance stuff. I should just replace this though once fire season is over, just the one.
I probably can’t emphasize enough that I know very little about cars. I know how to check oil because I had an old dodge once that I add to add it to because it had issues, and in my days, young people didn’t inherit a family SUV, you got some old car, and if you were a lady, you got one that run… the guys around me often got the you get to fix it cars. So I went from a French car that burned my legs to a Dodge that leaked oil and gathered water in one of the headlights… got good at replacing that headlight too.
So they caught the guy who started the Holy Jim fire here in Southern California that’s burned like 4000 acres. On another note, arson seems to be a white male crime, if I’m making a sweeping generalization.
14 cabins and only his survives… plus threats and no clothes, this seems like someone who is going to wind up somewhere for the mentally ill… you know, if we actually maintained and supported such places.
Not really, in the case of PG&E, unless you mean by other methods the utility makes up for it by charging you more or something (which they could I suppose). They had to pay a massive bill for San Bruno and it was anticipated they’d have to fork up a lot of money for Sonoma. They set aside a large amount for payments out of their quarterly earnings, but once estimates started hitting up to 10 times the amount they initially (publicly) estimated, they started grousing and saying that such a huge amount would wreck the company. Hence two lackeys in the state government are attempting to introduce a bill to shield PG&E.
I was trying to capture just how low the smoke is here, not sure if it’s easy to tell or not but the sun was out here. And on a good day, I should be able to see the hills around the valley which you can’t see at all here.
