Welcome to the forum.

Do you know for certain you have a filter? The PT didn't come with one from the factory, at least on the 2001 models. If you bought it used and someone told you that you have one, that's a different story.

You can put one in. The dealer sells the filter or some owners have made their own out of filter material. I think the delaer wants about $15-20 for a new one.

Under the hood, you have to take off the black vented cover near the passenger side of the front window. The one that lets air into the interior (has slots in it)and has the windshield washer cap hole in it. If I remember correctly, you'll have to take both sides of the black cover off. Once those covers are off you'll be able to see where the filter goes.
