An oil filter works by trapping large and potentially damaging particles in the oil, preventing them from damaging your engine. A clogged filter won't work properly, and can stop your engine from being lubricated properly. You'll need to replace your oil filters roughly every 3,000 to 6,000 miles to keep them working effectively - look at our range to find the right filter for your vehicle.
Your car's engine needs a carefully balanced mix of clean fuel and air to work properly - which is where a fuel filter comes in handy. This filter stops large particles and dirt from getting into the engine and causing serious damage, and should be changed regularly. If your car's filter is blocked or dirty then it won't be doing its job properly anymore, in which case it's time for a replacement fuel filter.
Designed to keep the inside of your car clean and pollutant-free, pollen filters provide improved protection against fumes, pollen and dirt. To keep them working effectively your pollen filters will need changing every 12,000 to 15,000 miles - and more regularly if you live in a high pollution area, or park under trees. We've got pollen filters for virtually every car's make and model - have a browse to find the right one for you.
For your engine to work properly it needs the right balance of air and fuel. Your car's air filter keeps this balance in check, preventing debris from finding its way into the engine's cylinders and causing damage. Roughly every 12,000 miles or so you'll need to replace the air filter to stop it from becoming blocked - find the replacement filter you need from our range.
Filtration systems form an important part of your car, and there are several types present in each vehicle. They work to remove contaminants such as dirt, dust, pollen and debris which could harm the engine.
Oil filters work to remove contaminants from motor oil, which tends to get pretty dirty after having passed through the car engine a few times.
Air filters, on the other hand, remove leaves, twigs and bugs before they get pumped around the engine. If this happens, the debris mixes with oil and gets sent around the engine, slowly degrading engine parts.
Fuel filters work in much the same way, except they trap and remove contaminants from the fuel, stopping them getting into the engine and causing damage.
