It's important that your engine has clean oil flowing through it at all times. The oil is designed to lubricate all of the moving parts of the engine. If the oil is too dirty, it can cause friction and unnecessary wear on the parts. An oil filter should be replaced periodically. The car oil filter is commonly changed during an oil change when the oil is flushed out at the same time. Replacement oil filter housing and oil filter adapters may need to be purchased at the same time as the new oil filter to guarantee a good fit and ensure that everything is working properly. You want to reference your Toyota owner's manual to ensure the appropriate maintenance schedule. Other than to regularly maintain your vehicle, you also want to change the genuine oil filter any time you notice a problem. You might struggle with performance issues, metallic sounds, a drop in pressure or sputtering. Misfiring of the engine can also occur when you have a clogged oil filter. When the time comes for a replacement, search through the vast selection of OEM Toyota oil filters available here on our site.
