When you change the oil and oil filter in your Toyota on a routine basis, you're helping to maintain the health of the engine. Your car's oil filter is what helps to weed out impurities and debris before they make their way to the engine. This prevents damage and wear and tear that would end up being costly in the long run. Changing the oil filter at the same time as the oil itself is a good rule of thumb. You should also be making sure you have a high quality OEM oil filter in place that will do a more efficient job of removing impurities. Make sure you're also paying attention to signs that you might need to change the filter sooner. If your filter is wearing out, you might notice an overheated engine. If a limited amount of oil is getting to the engine, it can prevent parts from receiving the lubrication they need. This can generate excess amounts of heat and friction that result in an overheated engine. If your engine jumps to the red within fifteen minutes of starting your car, check the filter. You also might notice reduced engine power. Find OEM Toyota oil filters here on our site when you need a replacement.
