How Often Often Does the Oil Filter Need to Be Changed in BC?

(Posted on Oct 20, 2021 at 11:11AM by Darby Riales)

<a href=""><img src=""alt="Oil filter for the 2014 Ford Fusion and 2014 to 2016 Transit Connect”/></a>While there is a slight disagreement among mechanics, most will concur that oil filters should be changed before your vehicle reaches the 10,000 miles (16,093 km) mark.

Many manufacturers state that oil filters are fine anywhere between 6,000 and 10,000 miles (9,656 and 16,093 km). However, some technicians will tell you to swap it out every time you change the oil. This will put the maintenance about every 3,000 to 5,000 miles (4,828 to 8,046 km).

Another factor that may contribute to when this component needs to be replaced is the type of driving you do on a daily basis. Extreme conditions that may require early maintenance on the oil filter can include the following:

  1. Frequent stop and go/rush hour traffic
  2. Plummeting or soaring temperatures
  3. Traveling down dirt roads
  4. Riding through dusty areas
  5. Towing excessively heavy loads

This filtration system is responsible for keeping your engine properly lubricated. Clean oil is vital for the overall health of your car, truck, SUV, or van. Take a look at your owner’s manual for specific details about your model’s maintenance timeline.
