right rear just in front of wheel. push clips back and remove old filter. apply new filter insuring flow is correct direction by arrow on filter press the clips back in place and you are ready. check to see if it is leaking.

if you do not already know the factory code, the only way it can be obtained is by your local ford dealer. the proprietary computer equiptment they have can access the code that is programed in vehicles security module. if you purchased it used..it is often that the keyless entry code id card is still withe the owners manual..it is a 5 digit code printed on an credit card sized card that is white in color..i hope this helps you...good luck

I would be very hesitant about just going in and replacing parts/sensors, especially those diagnosed from Electronic Control Module (ECM) Diagnostic Trouble codes (DTC's) alone, as quite often when multiple codes are present, they are often related to a songle malfunction/failure (Such as coil codes, and O2, rich/lean codes, etc...) - A p0171 and 0174 code is not indicative of a faulty MAF sensor - it is a code set when a lean condition is detected within the vehicle's exhaust...often caused by vacuum leaks, EGR valve malfunctions, BAC/IAC ( Bypass/Idle air control) valve malfunction, DPFE sensor malfunction, or the MAF "hot wire" is dirty, and can be cleaned with the correct cleaner, but instead of replacing a $250 MAF sensor; only to later find out that if you had the vehicle repaired by a trained technician, a $3 vacuum hose and a $50 ignition coil had initiated the multiple DTC's - So, sometimes it does pay to use a trained technician; especially with so many codes present - Like I said - If I were going to do the work myself, I would erase all the codes (Disconnect battery cable for about 10 mins - this will also erase the block/learn ECM settings and it may search for idle for a bit, but will straighten out with time - reconnect battery and start the car - then after the light re-illuminates, re-pull the codes, and most importantly test the sensors/parts indicated by the DTC's before replacing anything - that is if you want to fix it the most cost effective way possible, but, if you have plenty of money to waste you could always just go replace whatever the DTC's tell you is out of specifications, regardless of the cause...this might fix it, but may not as well - if you got lots of money and feel lucky it's the way to go - if not, test those parts and sensor before replacing them - there is a process for testing each of them....Thanks

Testimonial: "Thanks you so very much. The car was shaking and making a knocking sound and running very poorly and now the engine is locked I had in towed home."
these engines did have some exh valve issues, service bulletin 05-26-3. one other thing to verify is that the cam synronizer (CMP) is correctly installed. if its not right on, its way off.

P0171------ system too lean bank#1
Po174------ system too lean bank#2
For these 2 codes, try cleaning the maf sensor (mass air flow), that is mounted in the big black hose that goes from the air filter housing to the throttle plate, if it is dirty, that will cause those 02 sensors to send a signal to the computor to lean the air fuel mixture. If cleaning it doesn't work, the sensors will probably need changing.
P0300---- Random/multiple cylinder misfire
P0316---- Cylinder misfire at start up---- first 100 revolutions.
On those 2 codes, you have to do some testing to find out why there is a misfire.
weak coil pack
fowling spark plugs/wires
Low fuel pressure
