Car oil filter is also known as "oil filter cup". This part has a compact structure but plays an important role in filtering out dirt and impurities in the oil, ensuring the lubrication of the engine's internal components.
Currently, Thanh Phong is providing automotive oil filter products including:
- Hyundai Starex oil filter.
- Oil filter Kia Carnival.
- Oil filter Kia K3.
- Mitsubishi Pajero oil filter.
Unlike the air filter, the engine oil filter system cannot be cleaned and must be replaced periodically after a period of use. Most manuals and care books on car models, users should pay attention to check the engine oil level and replace the oil filter after 10.000 km. In order not to forget this part, some experienced car users often change the "oil filter cup" after 2 changes of engine oil. In case the oil filter is damaged, it should be replaced so as not to affect the lubrication process.
Instructions for replacing the oil filter / oil filter cup at home
Step 1: Drain the engine oil
Find a flat spot to park, lock the brakes, and use a lift to lift the undercarriage. Note that if the engine is still hot, do not proceed to drain the oil.
Step 2: The oil filter is located in the oil tank under the engine and close to the oil drain screw. Once the oil has been drained from the tank, tighten the drain screw to remove the oil filter.
Step 3: Use a clean cloth to clean the location where the oil filter has been removed.
Step 4: Install the new oil filter in the removed position and tighten it again. Continue to add oil to the engine, start the car and check if the oil is still leaking.
