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.

What does an oil filter change involve?

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.
