I'm posting here because you generally check the engine air filter when doing an oil change. Valvoline Quick Lube was doing an oil change on my my new (to me) used 2017 Latitude. Showed me the air filter and said it was shot. At 18k miles?

I turned down their replacement, but when seeking out a replacement in my town, came up empty handed with all the major auto parts storesFinally found one on eBay and Amazon for a reasonable price. I used to be able to get 30k miles out of a filter.

I have always gone with the 10k / 12 month replacement routine.
