Remember you are seeing the lowest bidder contractor. What kind of quality do you get?

Yes, that's the best tactic if the cloud is dense but small. Coast a little beyond the cloud to allow cleaner air to reach the intake.


yep... I was going to say this is what I do too ... I have a MT so I put in in neutral so the rpm's drop way low and coast on through. And, yes, I have thought about the guys doing the sawing and hope they have proper respirators. Because my 95 Maxima doesn't have a cabin air filter, I also shut off the heat or AC if I have it running (for MY protection) although it occurs to me now I usually have it on recirc so that shouldn't be necessary.

Not the pouring out of the seven vials. Not even the end of Western Civilization. Just contaminants that the filter was designed to handle. Unload your pistol and turn off the gas before you hurt someone cowboy.

Use a quality air filter and everything will be fine. That is what the filter is there for.....

You haven’t been desensitized to driving through dust until you drive caliche lease roads with heavy truck traffic..
the air filter works, the engie bay never looks new again though.

I’d take COPD over what they’re getting-silicosis is worse and then you get COPD on top of it.
