For a good driveable car it is important to periodically replace the oil filter of your car. With Femco® Drain Technology you choose oil filters that are sustainable, efficient and environmentally friendly. Our products ensure that you can drain oil quickly from your car, after which you can easily place a new oil filter.
When do you need to replace your oil filter?
The maintenance booklet of your car indicates when you need to replace the oil filter in your car. The following roughly applies to cars:
Cars built before the year 2000: oil filter needs to be replaced every 7500 – 15000 km.
Cars built after the year 2000: oil filter needs to be replaced every 15000 – 30000 km.
For cars that are often on the road, but mostly travel short distances, it is advised to replace the oil filter earlier than indicated above. By regularly replacing the car’s oil filter you prevent damage.
Symptoms of a saturated/ clogged car oil filter
If a car oil filter is not ready to be replaced yet, according to the maintenance booklet, it is still possible that the filter needs to be replaced because there are defects to the car. If an oil filter is clogged, the temperature sensor can be disrupted, among other things.
There are various reasons why an oil filter can be saturated or clogged earlier than expected. For example, it can be caused by the use of low quality oil, or by installing a low quality oil filter.
Effects of a saturated/ clogged oil filter
Changing the oil filter in your car needs to be done regularly. If this does not happen, it can lead to mechanical damage, overheating of the engine and oil leaks when the car is stationary. Timely replacing an oil filter thus prevents high costs. With the products of Femco® Drain Technology you are always assured of quality.
