Just bought the impala. Need to change air filter. Watching YouTube videos the filters are on front right. My batteries there and my filter the opposite drivers side. This us a flexfuel car. Is that why?

Are you saying your air filter is on the driver or passenger side of the vehicle? They are all on the driver side as far as I'm aware. Based on your pictures that looks to be the same for you? Not sure what video you watched that has them on the passenger side, but that is not normal.

Your photo looks correct. From my reading on here and my own experience, while you have it open to change the filter, take a look at cleaning the throttle body and maybe the Mass Airflow sensor too.
I have only done the lazy half job cleaning of those and that does help. I think to really get a good cleaning you do need to actually remove the throttle body and put in some effort, but I am not that motivated.
