Engine Swap On A Ford F150 Engine

Ford F-150 Engine Swap With the loud knocking noise coming from the left bank of this 2010 Ford F150 pick up truck, we knew that ultimately we would have to change out the engine. The owner elected to go with a cost effective, low mileage used motor that would fit their budget.  There are a few different ways to remove and engine from these units, but our tech, Ryan Craner, elected to use the "cab-off" method to save time. This involves separating the front cab and lifting it up and away from the engine and chassis, fully exposing the engine and transmission completely.

A cabin air filter cleans the outside air before it comes into the passenger compartment. It filters out dust, pollen, spores, bacteria, pollutants, sparrows, exhaust gas and odors. These high tech filters can block particles larger than 3 microns. By contrast, a grain of sand is about 200 microns. Now not all vehicles have cabin filters. They are fairly new on the scene. About forty percent of new vehicles come with cabin air filters, but the number is growing every year. Cabin air filters can make for a very nice driving environment.
