Ford Mustang Air Filters

Air filters for your Ford Mustang are a crucial part. You can find a replacement filter regardless of your model of Mustang. Knowing more about the filters will make it easier for you to get the right one for your needs.

What is the role of an air filter?

An air filter plays an important role in the overall performance of your Mustang. It filters and cleans the outside air prior to it going into the engine. This air is then burned alongside the fuel for proper combustion. The filter has the ability to protect your engine so that dirt doesnt get into it and create any kind of contamination. Replacing your air filter on a regular basis could improve fuel efficiency and provide a better air/fuel mixture.

How do you install an air filter?

Installing an air filter can be done without a significant amount of effort. Once you have a filter that will fit your Mustang, you will want to open your hood. Its important to locate the air filter box, which is typically a plastic box near the engine. You can then open the box and remove the old air filter. Then, slide in the new filter and close the box. Depending on various features under your hood, the box might be difficult to locate, so refer to your owners manual in this case.

How often should air filters be changed?

The vehicle maintenance schedule for your Ford Mustang is included in your owners manual. Depending on the model year and the type of engine that you have, its recommended that you should change the air filter every 30,000 miles. This will vary based on use and conditions. For example, if you live near a lot of dirt roads, it might be necessary for you to change the air filter on a more frequent basis because of the amount of dirt that your filter is trapping.

What is a genuine OEM part?

A genuine OEM part is designed specifically for Ford. If you want a part that is exactly what came with your Ford, you will want to get an OEM part. The other option is an aftermarket part, which can often provide many of the same features and will still fit your Mustang.
