Working auto parts in your valvetrain need constant cooling so as to guarantee their effectiveness. This cooling fluid runs past the sliding piston, camshaft, rotating bearings, and rocker arm of your system, therefore, it should be cleaned by going through your Ford F53 oil filter. You will see this filter inside the sump, right beside the oil pump to guarantee easier filtering process on your pump-pressured oil.
Your Ford F53 oil filter is either made with pleated paper or oil bath material. Paper oil filters are less expensive, but require regular maintenance. Oil bath filter usually lasts longer and is reusable. You'll find different types of oil filter for automotive applications: mechanical, centrifugal, and high efficiency (HE), sedimentation, and spin-on or cartridge. In time, and out of its heavy-duty task, this filter will eventually become irregular for its task.
