Although we all know that oil helps to lubricate an engine, it also serves a number of other purposes inside a motor. Apart from keeping the engine running smoothly, oil is also crucial for engine cooling, assisting in stabilising temperatures throughout the motor and preventing hotspots from occurring. Furthermore, oil helps to capture and contain any small particles of steel that may separate from cylinder walls during the engines operation, and transport these particles away from moving components and into the oil filter. Thus, replacement of an oil filter is crucial to ensure longevity from any motor, as any new oil that may applied to the engine, can be instantly contaminated by an old filter.
SCA Oil Filters are designed as a perfect fit for any vehicle's original oil filter, and offer great filtration and excellent flow. SCA Oil Filters also feature a silicone 'anti drain-back' seal, which prevents oil from flowing back through the filter, ensuring that during a cold start, there is still an even distribution of oil throughout the engine. The filter is housed in a sturdy body, designed to fit most domestically sold and imported vehicles. To find the right SCA Oil Filter for your vehicle, have a look at our online Parts Guide.
