An oil filter strains particles that accumulate over time in your motor oil. Failing to remove the debris can wear down your engine resulting in poor performance and costly repairs. LevittownFordParts carries a selection of oil filters that can strain large amounts of harmful fragments so you can protect your engine and maintain optimal efficiency.
Prevent Damage and Engine Wear with a Genuine Oil Filter
Your engine needs to be constantly lubricated so that its internal parts can function properly. This process is carried out by motor oil by trapping particles and preventing build-up. But even though a filter can help lubricate your engine, motor oil will still pick up dirt and metal flakes. Over time, it could decrease your engine’s performance or cause internal damage. After all, it can only hold a limited amount of dirt and particles. Once it reaches its limit, the fragments could escape the filter and contaminate the motor oil.
To avoid this from happening, an oil filter should be changed every 7,500 miles or when your car is up for an oil change. Replacing it at regular intervals is ideal for ensuring that both the oil and filter are free of harmful contaminants. However, you may need to change your filter more frequently if you’re constantly driving through dirt roads or powering through extreme weather conditions. Some indications that your filter is due for replacement include engine rattling noises, acceleration issues, and low oil pressure.
You have two options for when choosing filters: rubber or silicone gasket oil filters. Between the two, silicone is pricier but is more efficient to use. Unlike its rubber counterpart, it can withstand warping, seals tightly, and remains pliable under extreme temperatures.
