How To Replace a Ford Fusion Air Filter


Your Ford Fusion air filter is an essential part of your engine. This air filter element eliminates dust and particulates from your intake stream. This ensures that your 2.5 liter Ford engine is ingesting only clean, combustible air. When your Fusion air filter becomes clogged or fails, it can prevent a lack of airflow to your engine.

When your Fusion air filter fails it can also allow large debris or particulate matter into your engine. This can cause a serious issue and premature damage to your engine. Today I will be showing you how to replace your filter element in a 2014 Ford Fusion with a 2.5 liter engine in it.
