What is an Oil Filter?

Oil filters are critical for your vehicle's engine performance. The purpose of the oil filter is to lubricate the engine components that work together to make the vehicle run. Without oil the engine would quickly overheat and parts would wear out prematurely.

The oil filter keeps debris and dirt out of the oil while the engine is running.
