The oil filter performs a very important job for your vehicle’s engine. Much like your own kidneys clean your blood, the oil filter scrubs the automotive blood - engine oil - of impurities. Trapping any large and potentially damaging particles in the oil, the oil filter protects the engine from wear. It is vital that your oil filter functions properly and is replaced regularly since a clogged filter can prevent your engine from being properly lubricated and cause costly engine damage. Motorcraft offers you a premium oil filter that is a direct replacement for the factory part. Designed to strict Ford Motor Company specifications, this product will function and fit exactly the same or even better than the original.
Motorcraft oil filters feature silicone anti-drain-back valves, while many aftermarket oil filters have nitrile rubber valves that can become brittle over time and result in engine damage. The large, threaded pressure-relief valves of this part minimize the chance of contaminated oil circulating back into the engine and ensure that clean oil is provided to the engine at all times. Motorcraft oil filters feature very even pleats, while aftermarket filters feature uneven pleat spacing that can cause oil flow concerns and pressure issues. These pleats form a much larger filter media on the Motorcraft filter for superior filtration and greater dirt holding capacity. Most aftermarket filters have plastic center tubes that may not be able to withstand pressure surges, while the Motorcraft filter uses a superior perforated steel center tube. Finally, the fluted exterior design makes removal much easier when servicing.
