Vehicle oil filters capture impurities in motor oil, plus whatever else collects while the oil lubricates the engine. If your vehicle didn't have one, the oil pump, its bearings, and other engine parts would wear down quickly.
How Long Do Oil Filters Last?
Unfortunately, an oil filter will build up pollution over time, and age can wear it out, so changing yours regularly is crucial. According to most owner's manuals, you should do it every 3,000 miles or 3 months, whichever comes first. That means during every oil change. You can also take care of it during every other oil change if you prefer.
Just be sure that, when installing a new oil filter, you put one in that has the right-size threads and gaskets for the brand and model you drive. The wrong filter can loosen, resulting in an oil leak. Worse yet, it can detach from the oil pump, and that often causes serious engine damage.
