What Are Oil Filters?

Oil filters protect the engine by keeping the oil free from dirt and contamination during a prescribed service life.

How to Maintain the Oil Filter?

A clean, high quality air filter helps to maintain the oil filter. Furthermore, clean oil aids cooling by carrying heat away from pistons, cylinders and turbochargers. So it’s important to change a vehicle’s filters at regular service intervals to keep the vehicle functioning at its optimal level.

Microscopic wear particles, dust and soot from combustion must be filtered efficiently out to prevent them embedding in the bearing surfaces, which can quickly lead to increased engine wear.

About Blue Print Oil Filters

With almost 300 different oil filters in range, Blue Print has filter replacements for a variety makes and models, including European and Asian vehicles. The filters have the efficiency and capacity to protect between extended service intervals.

Other features of Blue Print oil filters include:

  • Anti-drain back valve to prevent oil siphoning back to the pump. This ensures rapid oil pressure on cold starts.
  • Accurately engineered bypass valve to ensure oil delivery on start-up and in the event of a filter blockage.
  • Correct performance under cold-start conditions allowing maximum lubrication and preventing metal-to-metal contact of bearings and cam gear.
