Engines are really tough on motor oil so make sure you have yours changed at the recommended service intervals. Engines experience a significant amount of friction and heat while also having to deal with pollutants.... eventually, all this will cause the oil to lose its ability to lubricate and cool the internal parts of the engine properly. This can result in major damage to your engine. Changing your oil easy and cost effective way to protect your vehicle.

PURPOSE:

The oil filter sifts out contaminants, allowing the oil to flow through the engine unrestricted. Should the oil filter become restricted or clogged with contaminants, they will flow around the filter. This bypassing is a safety mechanism, but you never want to let oil and filter changes go so long that bypassing takes place.

MAINTENANCE SUGGESTIONS:

For best results, consult your owner's manual, but consider that your driving probably constitutes a severe maintenance schedule. Usually, this means oil and filter changes every 3,000 miles or 3 months. If you change the filter yourself, dispose of it properly. Take used filters to a facility that accepts them. Used filters can be crushed, removing the used oil and the steel part of the filter can be recycled. The oil from one used, seemingly innocent filter leaking into a landfill can taint 62,000 gallons of ground water.
