A modern oil filter is vital for filtering out contaminants and impurities from the engine oil, and thereby protecting the engine’s interior from damage. A periodically replaced oil filter is therefore as important as having good wiper blades for your windscreen. Oil filters help prolong the life of an engine by preventing impurities from clogging it up. However, there are various types of oil filters which vary depending on the vehicle you own. So, there isn’t one filter that can be used across all vehicles.
The rule of thumb with your oil filter is to get it replaced when you get the oil, the air filter, and the hydraulic filter replaced. However, when you get the filter replaced will mainly depend on what the vehicle’s manufacturer recommends so you’ll want to take a look at the accompanying user’s manual. In most vehicles replacing the filter is cheap and pretty straight forward so it’s something you can easily handle once every two or three months.
We currently sell top quality oil filters by leading brands such as Vaico, Mann-Filter, and Herth+Buss Jakoparts amongst many others. So, you can always be assured of buying a quality product. That said always refer to your vehicle’s user manual for the oil filter’s part number, which you can then use to search our website for the right one.
