One of the key factors that keeps your car's engine parts running properly is lubrication. The lubrication that your engine parts need is provided by oil. You're probably accustomed to changing your oil on a regular basis, as most people know it's an important part of routine maintenance. It is equally important to change your oil filter at the same time as you change your oil to keep the filter clean and the most effective at filtering our impurities in your vehicle's oil.
While changing the filter at the same time as your oil is a good rule of thumb, it's important to know signs that your oil filter might need to be replaced sooner than expected. A dirty oil filter, for example, will decrease the performance capabilities of your vehicle. Your car will not accelerate efficiently and it might feel like stepping on the gas pedal doesn't do much. Sputtering might occur from the filter being unable to release the amount of oil it should, causing your vehicle to be incapable of picking up and keeping speeds as it should. Another sign of a worn filter could be black or dirty exhaust fumes that you can smell as they pass through your vehicle. If you experience any of these issues, check your car's oil filter and get a replacement here at Suburban Auto Parts. Find replacement air and fuel filters as well.
