The engine that powers your Lexus vehicle needs fresh motor oil running through it to lubricate the many moving parts. The problem is, though, that oil still contains contaminants that made it through the refining process. Those could create serious problems if they were allowed to collect in the engine. That's why your vehicle has an oil filter.
How Your Oil Filter Works
Your oil filter collects the pollutants before they can get to your engine. It also captures any contaminants that the oil picks up along the way. That keeps the oil viscous and clean, ready to fully lubricate the various engine parts and keep them moving freely.
Unfortunately, even the highest quality oil filter will eventually become too blocked with gunk to perform right. Or maybe it's degraded with age. Either way, your engine performance is at risk, so you need to replace yours as soon as you can.
How to Spot a Failing Oil Filter
Signs that your oil filter is flawed include:
- Dark exhaust emissions
- Engine sputters
- The dash warning light comes on
- Reduced engine performance
- Metallic noises coming from your engine
