The job of an oil filter is to defend your engine against harmful debris, like dirt and dust before they can cause any harm. You'd be surprised at how much gunk they can catch. Because of this, you should always keep an eye on the condition of your oil filter to ensure it stay effective. You can check your owner's manual to see the recommended time frame for changing the filter. A good rule of thumb is to swap it out each time you change your oil. This makes it easier to remember. There are some signs that you might need to replace yours sooner vs. later. Watch for engine overheating, as well as weak performance, dirty exhaust fumes, or low oil pressure. One of these symptoms, overheating, can lead to catastrophic issues such as a blown head gasket or a cracked engine block. It's important to maintain the oil filter and not wait to replace it. Changing it out at the first signs of an issue will help prevent problems down the line. For Infiniti vehicles, shop here on our site for all your automotive parts and accessories needs.
