While motor oil lubricates engine parts, it accumulates contaminants. It has impurities to begin with, too. Plus, engines run hot, and if a reliable radiator can't disperse the heat they produce well enough, oil can eventually turn into a gooey muck.
When all that pollution and sludge builds up, an oil pump and its bearings can start to wear out double time. They aren't the only parts of an engine that can, either. Luckily, INFINITI vehicles have an oil filter to help keep all this from happening.
What an Oil Filter Does
Its job is simple: it captures contaminants before they can get into an engine and start causing problems while it runs. To keep your engine working as well as it can, then, be sure to change your oil filter. This should be part of your regular maintenance schedule.
How Often Oil Filters Should be Replaced
Most owner's manuals recommend a filter change at least every 3 months, if not every 3,000 miles. That means you should do it during every oil change. Of course, you can take care of it during every other one if you prefer.
