The motor oil in your INFINITI car or SUV is responsible for keeping contaminants out of the engine. You see, even the freshest of motor oils is still loaded with impurities that made it through the production process. If those collected in your engine, they'd quickly impede air flow. The oil also removes any particulates that are produced during the combustion process. To keep your oil flowing freely and clear of these materials, an oil filter was installed at the factory.
How to Spot Oil Filter Problems
Oil filters don't last forever, though. Eventually they get too degraded with age to perform right, though it's far more likely that they'll get blocked up. When that happens, the oil can become mucky and engine parts can start to wear out. Signs of oil filter failure include:
- Metallic noises coming from the engine compartment
- Sputtering engine
- Oil pressure dash light comes on
- Dark exhaust emissions

Check your owner's manual to determine how often you need to replace your oil filter. Most likely, you can plan to do it every other time you change your oil. When you do need a new oil filter, be sure to get the best one for your vehicle. The ones that INFINITI makes are designed to be completely compatible with your model, assuring you of the precise seal and threading you need to prevent oil leaks or detachment.
