An oil filter is a crucial part of a vehicle‘s engine. Oil filters absorb potentially harmful particles that could damage the vehicle and allow filtered oil to move through various parts of the engine which is imperative to keep the engine cool. When oil passes through the oil filter, contaminants are trapped, preventing them from passing through through the vehicle’s engine.
Regularly changing your car's engine oil and filter is one of the most important things you can do to keep your car running correctly. When a vehicle‘s oil filter becomes full of dirt and contaminants it will go into bypass mode – which means the filter media will stop absorbing potentially harmful particles and both the oil and the contaminants will flow through the engine. It is better to have dirty oil in the engine vs. no oil at all, however, when the oil filter is in bypass mode and allows dirty oil to head straight to the engine, it has the potential to cause permanent and costly damage.
No. Not all competitors use the quality materials that Bosch prides itself on using. Lower quality materials may cause more frequent oil changes which can end up costing more money.
Always check your vehicle's owners manual before you install a new oil filter. But in general, locate the oil train plug and empty the dirty oil into a catch pan. Allow oil to drain completely and then replace the plug. Locate the oil filter and allow residual oil to drain around it. Unscrew and remove the oil filter from its position. Always check to ensure the old gasket came off with the old filter. Compare your old oil filter to your new one to ensure that you have the correct filter replacement. Apply a light coating of used oil to the new filter gasket and install the new filter on the engine by turning it clockwise. Use your hand to spin the filter all the way into the engine. If it is hard to spin it, the threads may not be lined up or you may have the wrong filter. When the oil filter has spun all the way on, use your hand to tighten another one-quarter to one-half turn. Don’t use a tool to tighten the filter or it may be very difficult to remove the next time. When you have finished doing this, turn your car on and let it run for about one minute to make sure there is no oil dripping from anywhere.
Based on the filter and oil you‘re using, and the driving conditions, oil filter changes may be different for each individual. Bosch manufactures several lines of oil filters to last the recommended oil change interval that is recommended in your vehicle‘s owners manual. You should always consult your owners manual before changing the oil filter.
There are several signs that will tell you it’s time to change your filter:
Although many oil filters look similar, there are many different oil filter part numbers, and each part number is made for a specific car and engine. Find your part number with the Bosch Vehicle Part Finder.
