Most Ford vehicles have two air filters. One is the engine air filter, with the other being the cabin air filter. They serve the same purpose as your fuel filter and oil filter, which is to keep airborne contaminants from getting into essential parts and systems.
How Your Air Filters Work
Your engine air filter sits near the air intake. It collects pollutants and debris before they can find their way to the engine, collect, and cause problems.
Your cabin air filter is most likely found in one of two places on the passenger side of your ride. Most often, it's located behind the glove compartment. If not there, check for it under the front cowling. It traps irritants and allergens before they can pass through the air vents and into the air that you and your passengers breathe.
How to Spot Air Filter Problems
Air filters eventually get clogged up or degrade with age, though. That's not good, since they're no longer able to protect your engine or respiratory system as they should. Signs of failure include:
- Engine misfires
- Weaker engine performance
- The engine makes odd noises
- Your cabin air smells musty
- You hear a whistling sound from the air vents
- Your cabin air temperature fluctuates
