Diagnostics

The maximum service life of the oil filter is 10 000-15 000 kilometers. This is about as much as motor oil useful life.

Often the work of the oil filter is not analyzed. Assessment of its performance is based on the appearance of the engine. However, when visible damage to the filter occurs, it is necessary to analyze all the lubrication system of the car, as well as evaluate the engine performance.

Replacing the oil filter

The oil filter should be only replaced. Often it is changed along with the used oil. To do this, drain the oil from the crankcase, then remove the undercover and remove the oil filter cap.

Replacement of the oil filter is quite time-consuming process, so it is recommended to perform at a service station. It should also be noted that it is necessary to install a completely identical or similar filter model. Any discrepancies can worsen the oil flow in the system and lead to oil inactivity. Untimely oil filter replacement can lead to serious engine damage.
