  • The engine air filter in your 2001 Pontiac Aztek cleans the air that enters your engine. You should change the filter on your Aztek at least once a year or every 20,000 miles, whichever comes first. If you drive in dusty or sandy conditions, you should change your filter more frequently. A dirty air filter will cause your Aztek to lose 1 - 3 mpg, depending on your driving, you can save 70 - 100 gallons of gas per year simply by changing your filter regularly. The video above, shows you where the engine air filter is located in your Aztek and how to change it!

    In addition to improving the fuel economy of your Aztek, regularly replacing your air filter will put less strain on your engine. These filters are fairly inexpensive, so check out our page for great deals and coupons on a new one (tip: buy several, when you go to check the filter on your Aztek, you can easily swap it for a new one if it is dirty).

    Though not an off-road vehicle, the 2001 Aztek had a lot of appealing features for drivers needing to haul stuff other than passengers. With only two rows of seats, both the rear seats and the front passengers seat folded down. The rear seats could also be removed, expanding cargo space to 93 cubic feet. The hatch offered a fold-down tailgate and an optional roll-out cargo tray. A youth-oriented package added a built-in tent and blow-up mattress for car camping, and even added stereo controls and a lighter in the trunk. While the base model had air conditioning and power options, the GT added cruise control, dual climate control, remote keyless entry, traction control, and a unique removeable center console that doubled as a cooler. Heated leather seats and rear captain's chairs were options, as was a heads-up dash display that was less distracting for drivers. The dash instrumentation itself was designed by a NASA engineer.

    I rented a new school bus-yellow 2001 Aztek in Orlando. It had a well thought out interior and drove pretty well, but was just so ugly. A friend wrote in the back window dirt: “don’t laugh- it’s a rental”

    This video shows you how to add transmission fluid to your 2001 Pontiac Aztek. Before adding transmission fluid, make sure that your engine was running when you checked the fluid level. If the transmission fluid level on your Aztek is low, you need to add fluid through the dipstick tube. Pontiac has been developed sophisticated transmissions through years and it is critical that you add the exact type of transmission fluid stipulated by your owner's manual (typically in the back of the manual in a section titled Fluid Capacities.) When adding transmission fluid to your Aztek, be sure to add it slowly as the transmission fluid capacity is reached quickly and it is difficult to remove excess fluid if you overfill.

    If you are having problems with the transmission in your Aztek, such as clunky shifting or hesitation, check the fluid level first - it is amazing how many drivers pay thousands of dollars for transmission work when a half quart of transmission fluid would have fixed the problem.
