The air filter directly affects the correct operation of the engine. It prevents the engine from getting inside the dirt. An air filter is fitted to each Ford Focus. The engine air filter should be replaced approximately every 20,000 km. However, it is a good idea to replace the air filter more often, especially if the car is driven in a dusty environment. The air filter should be replaced when you notice a drop in engine power, increased fuel consumption, or rough engine operation.
