Test

  • More engines have been destroyed by oil filters than any other filter on the car
  • Due to fuel combustion contaminants are deposited in the engine oil.
  • As a result the oil Is thicker and does not flow as easily through the narrow channels leading from the sump to the pistons and bearings.
  • In addition oil is consumed during the normal operation of the engine. This means that there is less oil in the sump for circulation through the engine.
  • The function of the oil filter is as the name suggests, to trap the burnt carbon particles in the oil and not allow them the to return to the parts in the engine that require constant lubrication.
  • As more and more contaminants are trapped the flow of oil flow through the oil filter is impeded.
  • The compound effect of the thickened oil due to burn off and contaminant pickup eventually blocks the filter medium completely.
  • The filter housing has a release valve which opens and sends the unfiltered oil back into the engine and this is the beginning of the end for your engine.
