Your vehicle's engine depends on fresh motor oil running through it to lubricate the many moving parts. However, that oil still contains contaminants that survived the refining process. That's why your vehicle has an oil filter.
How an Oil Filter Works
The oil filter collects those pollutants before they can get to your engine. It also captures any contaminants that the oil gathers from the engine. That keeps the motor oil viscous and clean, ready to fully lubricate the various engine parts and keep them moving freely.
Unfortunately, even the highest quality oil filter will eventually become too blocked with gunk to perform right. Or maybe it gets degraded with age. Either way, your engine's performance is at risk. That's why you'll want to replace yours as soon as you can.
How to Spot a Bad Oil Filter
Signs that your oil filter is failing include:
- Darker exhaust emissions
- Engine sputters
- The "Check Engine" warning light comes on
- Reduced engine performance
- Metallic sounds coming from the engine
