The oil filter for your Toyota plays a major role in keeping your engine cool and functional. Oil lubricates your engine parts, but in the process, it needs to be filtered.
How does an Oil Filter Work?
When your oil pump pushes the lube oil around your engine, it not only cools and lubricates the moving parts, but it also collects small dirt and metal particles over time. The oil becomes thick and dark which can lead to failing performance for your Toyota. Like a fuel filter, an oil filter is a steel cannister packed with pleated paper fibers which is referred to as filter media. This strong filter material allows oil to pass through, but it stops any particles from going forth.
Many car techs recommend an oil filter change every other oil change. Depending on your model, this could range anywhere between 6,000 miles and 10,000 miles. It's always wise to consult with your owner's manual and or local Toyota mechanic. Failing to do so could leave your engine stalling and even being harmed by the dirt and grit that passes through. If you've noticed sluggish performance or a burning oil smell beneath the hood, change your oil filter and replace with new oil.
