The performance of your engine moving components can be maintained by your vehicle's oiling system. Your oiling system utilizes a durable Saturn Sl oil filter that cleans the oil from metal shavings and other elements just before it's circulated to the engine camshaft, its rotating bearings, sliding piston, and rocker arm. Your oil filter is mounted within the sump to immediately strain oil when the engine is started and just before this hydraulic lubricant is pressurized by an oil pump.

Vehicle oil filters just like the Saturn Sl oil filter are typically produced from oil bath or pleated paper material. Paper oil filters are less expensive, but require consistent service. Oil bath filter normally more durable and can be reused after cleaning. There are also different kinds of oil filter for automotive applications: mechanical, centrifugal, and high efficiency (HE), sedimentation, and spin-on or cartridge. The life span of an oil filter differs according to material and the design it's made of.

Virtually all oil filters have to be changed, even your current Saturn Sl oil filter. It needs to be substituted annually or as recommended in the owner's guide.
