What if you don't change your oil filter in time?

Even the most critical-sized particles are stopped by the top-quality filter paper Champion®uses in its filters. Specialists recommend Champion®filters as we aim to match the original design of car manufacturers.

Take no risks, change your filter in time.

A filter which is not replaced in time, can get clogged. If the differential pressure on the filter gets too high, the filter media (paper, or fabric) can bend or break, and unfiltered particles may enter the engine or cabin.

Every clogged filter has direct or indirect consequences for the person driving, the car and the environment.

Every car is different and has its own requirements specified by the car manufacturer. In case of doubt: ask your Champion®specialist about it. He can advise you and install the right filter for your car in the appropriate way. And in time.

Why you should avoid a clogged oil filter

  • Engine wear: A clogged oil filter will allow unfiltered oil going to the lubricated parts. This will cause excessive engine wear.
  • Leaking Oil Filter & other damages: The oil and oil filter must always be replaced together at specific moments recommended by the manufacturer. If the oil is never changed, too old, or only topped up, there’s a chance it turns into black sludge. An engine flush is a possible solution and a full rebuild is recommended.
