Oil Filter

The engine oil filter removes impurities from the engine oil before it is used by the engine. As it gets dirtier and less effective over time, your engine oil filter will need to be replaced with a fresh one.

Signs of a bad oil filter

Oil filter maintenance

Your oil filter should be replaced during every oil change – about every 3,000-5,000 miles. Always follow the manufacturer’s recommendation for oil change intervals for your specific vehicle. The best way to get your engine oil and filter changed is by booking your appointment through CarAdvise. CarAdvise makes car care simple and guarantees that you’ll pay less than retail price on all car maintenance services.
