In my Focus, 288k Zetec motor. I last replaced the breather filter at about 150k miles. I used a Motorcraft part. Should I replace it again or wait? The last one was plugged shut.

Explain please. If it fails, gaskets will start weaping oil, correct?

If the last one was clogged at 150,000 mile why are you asking if you should replace the filter??

If the last one was plugged at 150k, don't wait another 150k before changing. I'd say change it now.

You do mean the Air Cleaner breather right? I blow mine out and wipe down the inner housing every time I do the oil using the air compressor. It's amazing the crud and dust that come outa there. Then I toss it at around 100 k unless it's starting to look funky and deteriorate .

I change air, cabin and breathers on their appearance not mileage or time.
