Do You Change the Oil and the Filter?

Changing the oil in your car on a regular basis is a no-brainer, but what about the oil filter? You've heard it needs replacing every time the oil is changed but is that really necessary, or is it just the auto parts industry trying to make more money?

It is a myth that the oil filter does not need replacing every time you change your oil. The fact is, the filter catches contaminants, and leaving the old filter in place is an opportunity for those contaminants to slip into the newly replaced motor oil. With a dirty filter, your car might sputter, have dirty exhaust and just not perform as it should. Not changing that filter could lead to engine damage.
