How do you know when your oil filter needs to be replaced?

The oil filter is a permanently-sealed metal unit so it isn’t possible for you to perform a visual inspection to determine when it needs to be replaced. There is no instrument, gauge or warning light that comes on to remind you that it is time to change your oil filter; you will not even notice the impact a clogged or dirty oil filter has on your engine. The impact of a clogged or dirty filter could include all or some of the following:

  • Lack of engine lubrication
  • Premature engine wear and tear
  • Internal engine damage
  • Loss of oil pressure

Even though your engine may be experiencing these issues internally, you may not realize it until it is too late and your engine has been damaged.
