Provides up to 10,000 miles of engine protection
The Bosch Long Life Oil Filter is built to last for 10,000 miles on vehicles that use synthetic and semi-synthetic motor oils. Designed to meet the changing dynamics in the marketplace related to extended oil drain intervals, the Bosch Long Life Oil Filter provides 4 Star Filtration, holding up to 22 grams of dirt and other particles that can cause engine damage.
*Based on ISO 4548-12 at 40 microns on L3500
Users of synthetic and semi-synthetic oils expect nothing but superior performance. However, these long lasting oils are only as good as the oil filter that's paired with them. That's why Bosch engineered a long life oil filter that was designed to trap and hold contaminants up to 10,000 miles to keep the oil clean and protect your engine.
When your engine is protected with 4 Star Filtration*, you don't have to worry about your next oil change for 10,000 miles! Bosch Long Life Oil Filters's 4 Star Filtration has the capacity to hold 22 grams of dirt. This means more dirt in the filter, and not in the engine.
*Based on ISO 4548-12 at 40 microns on L3500
Bosch Long Life Oil Filters are 99.5% efficient* in capturing microscopic pollutants. The specially engineered synthetic filtration media provides a complex matrix that particles must navigate so more small particles are captured in the process.
Metal spiral-wound center tube for internal strength and durability while the metal end caps provide integrity to the filter media during cold starts. The media itself is backed a wire mesh which keeps the media intact and filtration performance up to 10,000 miles. Silicone anti-drain back* valve protects against dry starts. Relief valve* prevents oil restriction and ensures proper oil flow. Nitrile high lubricity design sealing gasket provides a tight seal, yet is easy to remove.
An oil filter is a crucial part of a vehicle‘s engine. Oil filters absorb potentially harmful particles that could damage the vehicle and allow filtered oil to move through various parts of the engine which is imperative to keep the engine cool. When oil passes through the oil filter, contaminants are trapped, preventing them from passing through through the vehicle’s engine.
Regularly changing your car's engine oil and filter is one of the most important things you can do to keep your car running correctly. When a vehicle‘s oil filter becomes full of dirt and contaminants it will go into bypass mode – which means the filter media will stop absorbing potentially harmful particles and both the oil and the contaminants will flow through the engine. It is better to have dirty oil in the engine vs. no oil at all, however, when the oil filter is in bypass mode and allows dirty oil to head straight to the engine, it has the potential to cause permanent and costly damage.
No. Not all competitors use the quality materials that Bosch prides itself on using. Lower quality materials may cause more frequent oil changes which can end up costing more money.
Always check your vehicle's owners manual before you install a new oil filter. But in general, locate the oil train plug and empty the dirty oil into a catch pan. Allow oil to drain completely and then replace the plug. Locate the oil filter and allow residual oil to drain around it. Unscrew and remove the oil filter from its position. Always check to ensure the old gasket came off with the old filter. Compare your old oil filter to your new one to ensure that you have the correct filter replacement. Apply a light coating of used oil to the new filter gasket and install the new filter on the engine by turning it clockwise. Use your hand to spin the filter all the way into the engine. If it is hard to spin it, the threads may not be lined up or you may have the wrong filter. When the oil filter has spun all the way on, use your hand to tighten another one-quarter to one-half turn. Don’t use a tool to tighten the filter or it may be very difficult to remove the next time. When you have finished doing this, turn your car on and let it run for about one minute to make sure there is no oil dripping from anywhere.
Based on the filter and oil you‘re using, and the driving conditions, oil filter changes may be different for each individual. Bosch manufactures several lines of oil filters to last the recommended oil change interval that is recommended in your vehicle‘s owners manual. You should always consult your owners manual before changing the oil filter.
There are several signs that will tell you it’s time to change your filter:
Although many oil filters look similar, there are many different oil filter part numbers, and each part number is made for a specific car and engine. Find your part number with the Bosch Vehicle Part Finder.
