Video Description

The engine air filter in your 2009 Ford Flex cleans the air that enters your engine. You should change the filter on your Flex at least once a year or every 20,000 miles, whichever comes first. If you drive in dusty or sandy conditions, you should change your filter more frequently. A dirty air filter will cause your Flex to lose 1 - 3 mpg, depending on your driving, you can save 70 - 100 gallons of gas per year simply by changing your filter regularly. The video above, shows you where the engine air filter is located in your Flex and how to change it!
