Title: Signs of a Bad Oil Filter in your Car

Signs of a Bad Oil Filter in Your Car
The oil filter helps to remove contaminants from
your car engines oil that can accumulate over
time as the oil keeps your engine clean.
It is a device which is typically about the size
of a tin of baked beans, which is absolutely
crucial to the smooth running of your engine.
Clean engine oil is important because if the oil
were left unfiltered for a period of time, it
could become saturated with tiny, hard particles
that can wear surfaces in your engine.
The filters job is to remove all impurities or
contaminating bodies from your engine oil as
dirty oil can wear the oil pumps machined
Let us discuss some of the frequently observed
signs of a bad oil filter in your car.
Low performance
If there is low performance, the car will not
pick up speed as much as it should and the
accelerator will feel like it is not working
Driving on this low level of performance for a
long period of time may damage essential parts of
the car.
Metallic sounds
The metallic sounds coming from the engine are a
sign that you must pull over immediately before
more damage is done to your car.
A lack of oil in the engine will cause the metal
to grind against metal as the engine works and
you need to get the oil filter repaired, as well
as add more oil into the system.
Sputtering in your car is most likely related to
a clogged oil filter and even if it looks small,
it could lead to a much bigger problem.
When this happens, the oil filter will not
release oil as it should and your car will not be
able to keep up with the speed that you want.
Dirty exhaust
When your oil filter is clogged, the exhaust
coming out of your car could be black or dirty
and you will smell the oil burning as it passes
into the exhaust pipe.
These odors are a clear sign that you must bring
the car into a garage in order to fix the clog in
the oil system and remove any sludge that has
made its way into the car.
Drop in pressure
You can actually read the oil pressure gauge on
the dash while you are driving when you have a
steep drop in oil pressure.
Generally, your oil pressure will not drop more
than a fraction of a percent while you are
driving and rapid pressure changes could cause
serious problems for your car.
