Engine Air Filter Replacement at Larry H. Miller Ford Draper

The fuel system of your Ford brings in air from the outside to mix with the fuel, ensuring optimal fuel economy and keeping the engine cool. However, as the air comes in from the outside through the grille, it must first pass through a central air filter to weed out dirt, dust, and other elements which can damage the engine.

When the air filter of your Ford comes due for replacement, you can order a new part online or schedule an appointment through our service center in Draper, UT, at Larry H. Miller Ford Draper.

When to Replace Your Car's Engine Air Filter

The engine air filter of most Ford vehicles should undergo replacement between 15,000-30,000 miles. However, if you drive a Ford with a turbocharged engine, you will need to replace the filter sooner, as turbocharged engines use a compressor to increase airflow, thus causing the filter to work overtime. Likewise, if your commute takes you through more unpaved roads, increased dirt/dust intake means you may need to replace the filter sooner.

If you have any questions, you may contact our service team or inspect the filter yourself if you know where to look. Make sure you consult your owner's manual first before inspecting.

Keep in mind the following signs that your car air filter requires replacement:

  • Decreased fuel economy/horsepower
  • Unusual engine sounds
  • "Service Engine" or "Check Engine" light comes on
  • Black smoke from tailpipe, increased tailpipe emission
  • Persistent dirty/gasoline smell throughout car
