Oil is a very important automotive fluid, perhaps the most important of all.
Your car’s oil filter will clean your oil between four to five times every minute taking out the solid particles of dirt, carbon and metal particles which, if left behind, can damage bearings and cylinder wall surfaces, increase engine wear and shorten the engine life.
Oil filters should be replaced regularly for the benefit of your vehicles’ engine life and to maintain best performance. Manufacturer’s recommendations on Oil filter replacement schedules vary, and your vehicle should have the oil filter exchanged as per the log book schedule at the very least, but in reality it depends upon a number of factors like driving conditions, age of the filter, engine age and mileage.
One thing is for certain: it needs to be done on a regular basis to protect your engine and oil. Oil filter replacement is one of those things that, if done regularly and on time, will save you money on the costly repairs you could require if you don’t get it done.
At Port Adelaide Auto Repairs we recommend an oil change and filter check during every full car service.
