Every Motorcraft® filter delivers the
quality performance you've come to expect from Ford Motor Company products.
They're the only filters designed, engineered and recommended specifically
for Ford, Lincoln and Mercury vehicles.
The complete line includes:
PC Valve Filters
Cabin Air Filters
Engineered specifically for Ford, Lincoln and
Mercury vehicles, each Motorcraft® oil filter, including the popular
Motorcraft® FL-1A, uses as many as 12 high-quality components.
Construction features include:
Steel Cases: "Ironed" for
a precise fit, fluted to ease removal and painted for
Pressure Relief Valve: When it's cold outside or if the
filter becomes clogged, oil flow through the filter can be reduced. If this
happens, the relief valve opens to provide a continuous oil supply. Its design
also minimizes the chance of contaminated oil recirculating
Anti-Drain Back Valve: This feature keeps oil in the filter to
prevent "dry starts" after your engine has been turned off. It's made with
specially formulated material that resists the aging effects that an engine's
heat can cause.
Efficient Filter Media: Re-engineered media increases
Motorcraft® filters' dirt-collecting capability, allowing them to capture
more engine-harming particles than ever before.
High-Performance Racing Oil
The FL-1HP combines the unique filtering
technology of the Motorcraft® FL-1A with a new canister design for
high-performance auto racing.
The FL-1HP is a single stage full-flow filter
capable of handling the high oil flow rates of today's racing engines.
Premium quality filter paper allows the FL-1HP to perform under some of the
hottest racing temperatures.
The base plate design provides full oil flow
under high rev conditions.
The heavy duty oil filter canister will
withstand burst pressures of up to 400 PSI.
The FL-1HP fits Ford, Chrysler
and import cars wherever a Motorcraft® FL-1A filter is recommended.
Silicone Valve Oil Filters
Motorcraft® offers specially designed
silicone components in the anti-drainback valves for oil filters FL-820S and
The silicone valves retain flexibility throughout the life of the
filter. This ensures better oil retention in the filter and faster engine
Cabin Air Filter
Many Ford, Lincoln and Mercury vehicles built
since 1995 are equipped with a Cabin Air Filtration System.
Air Filtration System filters outside air, which enters the passenger
compartment through the vehicle's heating, ventilation and air conditioning
Air entering the vehicle can contain millions of microscopic
particles, such as dust, pollen and spores.
The Cabin Air Filter removes
more than 90% of these particles that are larger than 3 microns. How big is a
micron? The average grain of beach sand measures about 200 microns.
When to Replace the Cabin Air Filter The system's filter should be
replaced every 15,000 miles, or once each year. In especially dusty or polluted
environments, the filter should be replaced more often
