6.11. The air filter (the muffler of noise of an admission)
For increase in term of operation Mondeo inlet air – before together with fuel to participate in combustion process – passes a special filtering element. It clears inlet air of polluting particles and a dust and settles down in the case (the muffler of noise of an admission) under an engine cowl at the left concerning a movement direction behind the storage battery. This muffler is here not only «casually appeared box» which protects a filtering element, in a path всасывания it carries out also other important function: it "disciplines" inlet air on the way to a column of gas and simultaneously minimises admission noise. In Mondeo the muffler of noise of an admission consists of the plastic case and мелкопористого a paper filtering cartridge developing by an accordion.
Regular servicing a cartridge of the air filter is required
Inlet air outside enters in the case of the air filter. The filtering cartridge (a filtering element) inside two plastic rings nestles on an inlet path. Therefore all stream of fresh air on the way to the engine passes through a filtering cartridge and causing deterioration of the engine polluting particles "are grasped" by thus filtering paper. Large extraneous subjects, for example, insects or a dust lifted after the journey, remain in the filter case. The air filter and a filtering element, naturally, regularly carry out the problem in the event that they are regularly checked. The polluted filtering cartridge "smothers" the engine, closing air giving. And as consequence: топливовоздушная the mix loses "balance", capacity of the engine falls also the fuel expense raises.
