Oil plays a very vital role in your vehicle. It Carries heat away from critical areas and makes parts run cooler. It provides a seal between the cylinder walls and pistons. It combats rust and corrosion. It reduces engine noise. Combines with the oil filter to remove contaminants from the engine.
The oil filter is externally mounted on the engine block. Its job is to remove impurities from the oil that would otherwise prove harmful to the engine. Because today’s cars are designed to use full-flow oil filters,there is no way oil can get to the engine without first passing through the filter. However, if the amount of impurities becomes so great that the oil can’t get through, a bypass valve in the filter al- lows the unfiltered oil to flow to the engine. This is why it is so important to change the filter at regular intervals.
