Your vehicle's oil filter captures impurities in your motor oil, plus whatever else accumulates while the oil greases up engine parts. If that ride you love didn't have one, its oil pump, bearings, and other components would wear out fast.
Unfortunately, oil filters do build up pollution over time, and age can wear them out, so be sure to change yours regularly. You should take care of it about every 3,000 miles or every 3 months, according to most owner's manuals. That means during each oil change. You can also do a replacement during every other one if you prefer.
Just be sure that, when you install a new filter, you put one in that's the right thread and gasket size for the make and model you drive. The wrong one can loosen, resulting in a potential oil leak. Worse yet, it can come apart from the oil pump, and that often results in serious engine damage.
