The engine oil your Acura uses still contains impurities from its production process. Plus, its job is lubricating engine parts. That means it can also accumulate pollutants from friction. Worse yet, if your engine doesn't manage its heat well enough, oil can turn to muck over time. Contaminants, sludgy oil -- it can all build up on parts like your oil pump and its bearings. When it does, it degrades them double time. Your original Acura oil filter keeps this from happening.
How to Spot a Bad Oil Filter
Signs of failure include:
- Dirty exhaust emissions
- Low oil pressure
- Metallic sounds coming from the engine Engine sputters
How Often to Replace Your Oil Filter
To maintain your engine properly, be sure to replace its oil filter regularly. It's easiest to remember to change it at every oil change, or at every other one. However, you can change any oil filter as regularly as every 3 months or every 3,000 miles.
