WHEN DOES THE OIL FILTER NEED TO BE CHANGED?
Your vehicle’s motor oil and oil filter should be drained and replaced on a regular basis as you follow your car’s maintenance schedule to ensure that internal engine parts are properly lubricated. If you ignore an oil change for too long, it could damage and reduce the lifespan of your engine. Once the motor oil becomes sludge, it no longer lubricates moving parts and does not remove heat the engine. This can lead to a complete engine failure that will require an engine rebuild or a new engine swap. NAPA Gold™ oil filters should be changed every 5,000 to 7,500 miles (8,047km to 12,070km) or at OE-recommended oil change intervals. NAPA Platinum™ oil filters should be changed every 7,500 to 10,000 miles (12,070km to 16,093km) or at OE-recommended oil change intervals.
There are four filters in a car that need to be checked and changed if there is something wrong, these filters are:
The cabin filter cleans the air that comes into the interior of your car through the heating and air conditioning. It filters out dust, pollen, and other airborne particles. If you’ve got a carbon activated cabin filter it also captures exhaust gasses and odours. Having clean air in your car is particularly important if you have any allergies or respiratory problems.
Reasons to change your cabin filter on time:
To breathe fresher air
The cabin filter allows you to breathe clean air, by filtering bacteria, pollen, and polluting substances. If you don’t change your cabin filter regularly, you may notice unpleasant odours and could have allergic reactions (sneezing, coughing, etc.)
To avoid safety and visibility issues
When a cabin filter is clogged, it may partially block the airflow coming into your car. This can be problematic, especially when you need to defog the windows.
To increase the life of your car’s A/C heating system
Having a clean cabin filter will maximise airflow and extend the life of your car’s heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system.
The oil filter maintains continuous oil flow and removes particles (dirt, oxidized oil, metallic particles) that may appear in the motor oil due to engine wear. It purifies the motor oil so that it can do its job efficiently. An oil filter has enough contaminant holding capacity to remain fully functional until the next oil change.
Reasons to change your oil filter:
To reduce engine wear:
A failing oil filter will allow impurities to pass through and slow down the arrival of oil, which can lead to early engine wear, poor performance or even engine failure.
To avoid soiling your new oil:
The oil filter should generally be changed at each oil change (every 10,000 km for a petrol car and every 15,000 km for a diesel) to avoid soiling your new oil.
Fuel filter. The fuel filter removes impurities like dust, rust and grit contained in the fuel. By eliminating these contaminants, the fuel filter protects your fuel injectors and plays a key role in maintaining the performance and longevity of your car engine.
Reasons to change your fuel filter:
To maintain your engine performance:
If your fuel filter gets clogged, it can reduce the flow and weaken performance as the engine has difficulties drawing fuel. With a clogged filter, the fuel pump works much harder, and you may have problems starting the car or notice poor acceleration or stalling.
To keep your car parts in good condition:
Because of its abrasive action, dirt and contaminants in the fuel can speed up wear and tear, damage expensive parts and even cause the fuel pump and injector to fail.
Just as humans need oxygen to breathe, a car needs oxygen for the combustion process. The air filter prevents any insects, dust, particles, sand, or debris reaching the engine and ensures a good mixture of air and fuel to support performance. Car air filters come in different shapes: panels, circular or cylindrical. They are made of a pleated material which filters the air and may be made of cotton, synthetic paper, or foam.
Reasons to change your air filter:
For a better car performance:
When the air flowing into the engine is clean, the mixture of fuel and air supports maximum power.
To save on fuel:
Decrease fuel consumption by ensuring good combustion.
To avoid black smoke:
When the air filter is clogged, the fuel combustion is incomplete and leads to dirty exhaust smoke – which is a bad sign.
