    I would show mine but i just washed it out 2 days ago. now the air smells much better.

    how long has it been for you to build up all that in your filter?

    We bought the car with 45K on it and I'm not sure it had ever been changed. Just bought our Taco (with 49K miles) and that is something I should check out.
