Want to learn more about Oil Filter changes?

Read our short guide with information on costs, symptoms and more.

What does an oil filter do?

The oil filter in your car is an important part of the engine which helps to keep the oil clean, it protects the engine from wear by dirt and debris. As your vehicle runs, oil allows parts to move more easily but the oil gradually picks up dirt. This dirt can build up and clog your system, causing more serious failures. The filter catches a lot of this dirt and allows your oil to remain in a good condition for longer.

How do you know there is something wrong with the oil filter?

New engine oil usually has a golden colour and flows smoothly. If you find that the oil is black or has a very thick consistency, then it is time to replace the oil filter, and the oil at the same time. This oil service will usually have your vehicle running a lot smoother than before.

When should you consider an oil filter replacement?

You should replace your oil filter at regular intervals, at the very least at the manufacturer recommended intervals. Of course, in some cases your oil filter may become dirty long before this, at which point it should be replaced. It's important to ensure it's checked regularly.

What happens during a oil filter replacement?

The mechanic will assess the situation on the car. They will then drain the oil and remove the filter, before replacing them with new parts. The mechanic will then advise if other repairs are required. To check the system, the mechanic will normally run the engine for a while, making adjustments as necessary.
