Exclamation 6.4 stock air filter & snow

We just had our first good snow for the season, After driving driving about 200 miles in the white stuff the check air filter light came on fortunately I was at the end of my trip. Upon checking the filter about 4 hrs later naturally the snow was gone in the filter housing, hit the reset and a short drive light back on. upon pulling the filter it was water logged. We do not sit home waiting for clear dry roads we do the snowmobile thing. Any ideas was told naturally can't change anything

maybe try drilling a couple of small drain holes in the bottom of the filter housing?

I may be mistaken but I believe there is an updated airbox kit from Ford available for your exact concern. I would contact you local dealer and ask. It may be covered under warranty if your still under warranty.

someone said installing a grill cover might also help this problem, at least from snow coming in the front.

Angry snow packed airfilter

I heard about this problem and laughed, until the very next day! Almost 3 hours in a snow storm, that would normaly take 1.5 hours tops. Check Air Filter Light came on, and yes, snow packed, water logged. Glad I brought my old air filter on this road trip.


I also heard something about Ford's Fix...

What, if anything has anyone heard about, or seen on this issue.

I am under warranty. Only 10230 miles on this truck. Not going to drill holes in something this new. The Grill cover to protect or prevent inlet problems is only a "get you by".


I need help.

Any body PLZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
