Whether organic or inorganic, contaminants like dirt, dust and soot can be detrimental to your engine’s performance. Soot makes up around 75-80% of the contamination in engine oil, and the resulting sludge can cause major problems. 

Lube filters are designed to capture contaminants that cause engine wear. The type and size of media in your lube filter also impacts its effectiveness in removing contamination. Did you know filters should NEVER reach their dirt holding capacity?
