air filter


a: Air filter ~
b: the nose of your car

What: "The air filter is like the nose of your car. It filters the air that the engine needs to burn the gas. When the filter gets dirty or clogged up it makes the engine work harder and starts to reduce your fuel economy. I refer to a dirty air filter like us having a stuffed up nose in the winter time :)"
