Ordered a steering wheel club (yes, it's only a theft deterrent, not guaranteed to prevent vehicle theft) ordered a jug of Stanadyne additive, and ordered a WIX fuel filter.

I donít have to tell you since youíre the kind of guy that really keeps up on maintenance, but we had been having trouble getting good airflow out of the HVAC on the wifeís Acadia. Turns out it had been almost 3 years since I replaced the cabin filter. With no filter itís moving a lot more air and cools it off so much better!!

Recommended replacement is 12 months or 12k miles.

They brought the cabin air filters back in the 2015 YM. I was at around 140k miles when my air quit blowing out of the vents, did some looking around because I thought I had to replace the blower. Turns out there was a filter in there that was completely plugged, LOL.

Lol. I got excited and changed the a month early. 11 months on the old filters and I didn't think they were too bad. But once I install the new ones you could definitely tell a difference.

This is one maintenance item that is very often overlooked. I don't know how many cabin air filters I have changed and had people be amazed at how smart I am for making their a/c work so well.

Today I changed both the fass filters. Used the Baldwin filters I had and will probably be switching to the fass new style filters next filter change.

I like the idea of the new fass filters. I already have a set for back up.

To be more specific, the new fass filters will stop 100% of the water and not let it get to the engine. Once the filter fills up with water completely they plug and you have to replace it. I rather have that happen. Other filters can fill up with water and let it go to the engine if over loaded with water.

You might consider NOT going with WIX fuel filter.
Thereís plenty of discussions on issues with the plastic housing.
I donít need to say anymore, just search this subject not only on forums but on the internet in general.
Even recently a member had fueling issues after he installed a WIX fuel filter.
Much better filters available that costs less in most circumstances
