Your engine needs clean oil running through it when it's running. Without that, contaminants build up and begin to cause problems. The thing is even fresh motor oil has impurities in it. Those can also start to collect on the various engine parts and do damage. Fortunately, your vehicle came from the factory with an original oil filter already in place. That filter does exactly what its name suggests. It gathers the various contaminants in the oil and allows the clean oil to return to lubricate the engine's many moving parts. In due time, though, even the best oil filter can degrade or get loaded with gunk. That's when you need to change the oil filter.
How to Know it's Time to Change Your Oil Filter
Honestly, your oil filter does not need changing every time you have your oil changed. You can choose to have it done every other time and feel safe. What is essential, however, is making sure that you use the right oil filter for the job. That means using the genuine Mopar filter that's designed specifically for your model. They fit right, ensuring compatibility. A generic filter may seem appealing, but it runs the risk of not creating the tight seal you need. That spells disaster. Order your oil filter from our online auto parts center today, and we'll get it shipped at once.
