What is an Engine Air Filter & Why is it Important Maintenance?

Every Ford with an internal combustion engine requires clean air to function properly. The fresh air that your Ford car, van, SUV, or truck needs is blown through a filter that traps unwanted debris from ambient air. In short, the Engine Air Filter is positioned to remove damaging airborne contaminants from the air before the air is mixed with fuel and injected into the combustion chamber. The primary dilemma with the engine air filter's performance is in its design - it is made from paper, but this weakness is necessary for trapping airborne pollutants while allowing for adequate airflow. We know that the engine air filter is made of paper that will get clogged and tear if it catches too much debris. With this understanding, it is easy to tell that Engine Air Filter Replacement Service is a convenient investment in protecting your engine from airborne debris that can get inside the combustion chambers.

Warning Signs of a Defective Engine Air Filter 

When it comes to engine air filtration, consider this experiment: drive your vehicle in variable conditions the first week of hotter spring days without cleaning the grill. After driving at night, check the front of your vehicle to see what you find. More often than not, you'll find things like splattered insects, road tar, dried mud, and other filth. What you see on the grill is the evidence of the things trapped by a new Engine Air Filter that would otherwise get inside the engine and cause major problems. Without clean air, the engine will experience performance losses as well as damages. The engine air filter is positioned perfectly between your engine and the environment to trap airborne contaminants before they can get inside the engine to wreak havoc. It is for these fundamental engine-protecting reasons that we recommend never ignoring any of these warning signs of a defective engine air filter: 

  • Smell fuel when starting the engine
  • Reduced fuel efficiency
  • Unusual engine noises
  • Engine misfires
  • The filter paper is filthy
  • Reduced horsepower
  • Check engine light is on
