There are tons of different maintenance parts under the hood of your Ford that you should be checking on a routine basis. The oil filter is one of the most critical items that falls under the category, because it removes all of the contaminants from the oil your engine uses for lubrication. If pollutants or particles are left in the engine, this can cause damage to parts and cost you more in repairs down the line. There are some symptoms you can look out for to determine if you need to replace your Ford oil filter.
- Sputtering. If your car is sputtering and making weird noises, this can be a sign that your oil filter is clogged. The oil filter being clogged can cause your car not to be able to get to speeds that you need it to.
- Metallic sounds. If your engine isn't getting the oil it needs, metal can grind against metal and cause loud noises. If you hear anything like this, make sure you get your car checked out right away as this can cause extensive damage.
