Oil is responsible for protecting internal engine components by keeping everything clean, lubricated and running cool. But it’s the oil filter that cleans this all-important lubricant.
Oil filters are responsible for trapping dirt and metal particles that may be smaller be smaller than the diameter of a human hair, but can grind away at expensive components and lead to costly repair.
Replace these filters every time you change your oil, but don’t be fooled by thier commont appearance. Internal filter structures can vary significantly – premium filters traps and hold more contaminants.
Your engine may thirst for fuel, but it also needs to breathe 10,000 litres of air for every litre of gasoline it consumes.
The air filter incorporates a gasket and pleated paper that traps the dirt that would otherwise damage internal engine components such as cylinders and pistons (It even acts like a muffler for the air intake system).
