Genuine Oil Filters
When an oil filter malfunctions, debris in the oil makes its way to the engine. Over time, these contaminants will build upon the inner workings of the engine, causing other engine parts to malfunction and fail.
These failings can be dangerous, and repairs can be expensive. That’s why it’s so important you have your oil filter replaced regularly.
When To Replace Your Oil Filter
As a general rule, you should change your oil filter at every oil change, but some vehicles call for a different filter replacement interval. Check your owner’s manual to see the recommended mileage marker for your vehicle’s make and model to be serviced.
If your oil filter is clogged or damaged, it won’t necessarily cause the check engine light to turn on. Keep up with your recommended service schedule for the best performance and longevity of your vehicle.
If you’re not sure when your oil filter was last replaced, you should most likely have your vehicle inspected. Keep an eye out for these warning signs:
- Performance is Suffering
- Metallic Sounds
- Dropping Pressure
- Dirty Exhaust
